It's not so good. I dislike that i can't stop app before showing the next word, because i rather stop and listen the word more in order to understand my errors. Would be great to limit number of variants for beginner. And i hate useless tabs

It's a good app but very limited. We need to be able to create a list of words or select words from the training session two or three at a time to go over separately. It's a very limited app right now.
