------------------------------------

NOTE: you can manually mark a word as 'mastered' by long tapping on it in the word list. A mastered word will still show up in rare occasions.

If you spot typos/mistakes, don't hesitate to email me :)

Upcoming features:
* more intuitive graphs
* games (maybe)

My thanks for all the help from Bilal Hasan and Abbas Eghlimi.

FAQ:

1. Please add feature to allow resuming session.
-> No. It's a design decision. You are supposed to work on an entire session in one go without distraction.

2. I see mastered words again...
-> Mastered words will still reappear in rare occasions. They might happen in batch.

3. I suddenly get all new words regardless of the set ratio
-> Old words will not reappear immediately. They need a while to show up again. The duration increases over time if you do well on them.

4. I suddenly get all old words regardless of the set ratio.
-> You have been trying to cram too much in a short period of time.

In summary, the app takes care of old words/new words for you. The principle is few repetition over a long, increasing periods of time is more effective than lots of frequent ones. I add some options other than the default ones due to excessive whining from multiple people. Use them at your own risks. Basically, if you're trying to cram a crazy number of words in a short period of time, you're looking for something else. Please don't ask for a "fix".

bug fix please When click "See History" the dates and time are all the same for a word. Thanks. Also, could you please tell me what is the filename that track the study progress? The cloud backup doesn't work for me since i study on two devices (smartphone for portability and tablet for my fat fingers) thanks again.

A slight problem A very good app. I am a regular user of this beautifully designed app. But the problem with this app is it does not require any sign up so your progress is not stored somewhere. Recently my phone got corrupted due to which I lost all my progress. A serious suggestion please add the option of some kind of sign up in this app.
