eeerrrggghh...Rough as Sandpaper. Look Elsewhere!!

Sometimes, it's easy to tell whether there was a large amount of effort put into polishing off a product. This is one of them. And this is not polished--it's rougher than sandpaper. Grievances: --Since when did the pinyin for Taiwan (which is practically the same as the English spelling) have a B in it?? --For some reason, the only way I can get the tracing to work is if I set my "First Language" to my target language. Confusing. --Some audio files say different things than the written words. If you're studying a language, the last thing you want is to learn the wrong thing...It's for this reason alone that that this app is worth skipping. Oh, and having the settings tucked into the sidebar/charms for all apps doesn't help very much either, but that's a Microsoft issue, isn't it? ;)

Days of Week missing!!

Could you update your app by adding French words for days of the week?

Limited, but nice

Just to be clear, there's no option to test your knowledge, no adding cards. It just shows you the words. But that, it does well: with nice pictures, and even a live tile! This is very good for a free app. I noticed a few mistakes: sometimes my writing isn't deleted when I move to a different word. The Korean word for "fish" is wrong: the picture shows a "fish in the sea", but the word is for "fish ready to eat". Those are two different words in Korean. Finally, "last word" does not work.

Very didactic

I like the simplicity of the application to get the user familiar with basic words.

OK... but... BAD AUDIO: Korean Audio is horrible

BAD AUDIO: Beginning of words are cut off, voices are inconsistent in gender and volume...

How do you access how to choose what language you want to learn? No setting button.....no start up page.....just start lesson. What's up with that?

Cool app

Pictures of food and fruits make me hungry! Learning a few Chinese words too.

Handy tool

I have the iPhone/iPad version and use it quite often. This Windows 8 version takes a bit getting used to as the scrolling list have been moved to the Navigation bar. Anyways, a handy tool to brush up on my vocabulary right on my new pc :-)

Nice Metro app

Just installed this on my new Windows 8 Ultrabook. Nice and smooth Metro app. I like the share feature. Learning Japanese now so will be using it quite often.
