Latest reviews of Learn Swedish - WordPower app for iPhone and iPad

Good only as a simple dicitionary
There are only words, no phrases. Verbs are only infinitives. Att vara - but no indication that it is not used in such a way. Good if you learn grammar somewhere else.
not worth it
It could have been a wonderful app. But its quite evident it has been developed really in a hurry without looking to much to the quality. Lets take for example the Modal Verbs words group: it counts 12 words. But.. the verb should is repeated 3 times (with the same translation, its not a language difference), and in the same group. Youll find for example the word "unneccesary", which stands for unnecessary and its not a verb. The entire application is filled with those errors. The only really good point is the pronunciation (but can we trust it?). Personally i would (and i think to do it) pass it and go for a good flash card app, building your own flash cards.
Almost there!!
I am a linguist and this program did help me with memorizing words. However, it would have gotten a full 5 stars if it included the definite an indefinite articles, because whats the point of knowing a word if you cant say "the" or "a" in front of it? Also a tutorial of simple grammar would have pushed this app over the top. All of this is completely doable, I hope a future update brings these changes.
No articles
I wish the app gave the articles to the nouns. Its necessary to know if a noun is common or neuter in order to conjugate it. Please update.
With next update it could be perfect
Great app, very user friendly. Love the flashcards and that I can keep score of my progress. I noticed, though, that some of the words repeat within the same category or in other ones. Please fix this little flaw.
