Pros and cons of Learn Finnish ™ app for iPhone and iPad

Learn Finnish ™ app good for

This app is fun and easy to use for very basic words. I like the quizzes and reviews that review what youve learned. The lists are long, but when you get to them daily, its surprising how much you learn.
Just started using, super easy to use and am so excited to get in touch with my Finnish roots
Ive only had this app and hour but it keeps asking for a review so here is an hours worth of a review. So far so good. The only issue I have with it is when the voice is translating a question it does not give it an inflection. It states the question like a sentence. Otherwise Im having fun with it.
I like that there is a lot of content and multiple ways to study the words. The problem Im having is that the study word lists are so long that I dont even want to go through the whole thing in one go but rather jump right into the games but then I dont know all the words so I dont do as well. And sometimes the pictures dont make sense to me as what they are in English let alone Finnish. But good overall!
Didnt know any Finnish before I started this. While word lists arent the best place to start, this will provide basic vocabulary.
Hard language but this program helps you get started learning.

Some bad moments

I cant hear any of the spoken words. Even with the volume turned up all the way its too quiet.
Crashes frequently. Ads are full screen and interrupt sessions. I wanted to love it because it is well laid out and fun when it worked but was too much headache in the end. iPhone 4s iOS 8.
This app contains great content and is presented in a way that encourages learning. My only issues are the app crashes too frequently and youre constantly being asked to write a review when the app is launched.
Beautiful design Easy way to learn Contain a lot of words Ads we can say it not found if we compare it with other free apps
Only been using for a few days now and I love it! Its helping me learning the more common words in finnish and I cant wait to continue to see what I can get from this app.
Good for building a first vocabulary of the useful words. Crashes though.
