I don't know how to pronounce some words and some of the cards don't come with audio why I thought this would be great with the book though they have a CD I can't follow along in my car while I'm driving. Wish everything could be audible. Heck if pay extra but ya know that extra should of came with the book purchase
The app emphasizes speaking, which supplements the books for a self-learner, but I'm learning French mainly to read it, so, eh. Content is generally good, though. The interface drives me NUTS. Back softkey exits the app instead of going back w/in it--ridiculous! & you can't set a favorite book to go back into or automatically open where you left off, so I'm perpetually restarting and having to tap through to select the language, scroll down to find my book, select the chapter, and find the set of cards I was working on.
All flashcards, which is fine, but ugly and with a terrible soundtrack. Looks straight out of the 80's. Buy the book (in Spanish at least) but use other services and apps like tiny cards (apple users only), duolingo, mindsnacks, cram flashcards... anything really. That being said, if you can put up with a terrible interface, they aren't bad flashcards.
Flash cards are fine. Interface is crappy. The clicks and music are loud and I can find no way to turn them down or off. Recording myself would be more useful if I could read the words on the same screen as the record feature. And I have the same complaints as others about drilling down, not saving your place, not creating a 'favorites' deck, and the back button taking you out of the app.
Really good addition to learning with the books. Encourages speaking and the fanfare, bells and whistles at the conclusion of each exercise are fun! Have not had any problems with the app.
Just...unimpressive. It works fine for me, but I don't feel like it really adds anything
