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

Learn Greek ™ app good for

Clear and easy to use, with lots of useful categories. Thanks!
The only way to learn Greek online in an effective way and at your own pace. great job guys!
I learned more Greek from this app than from all the shitty Greekschools Ive been going to for 10 years :)
Just started using this app and having had any crash yet. So far its an awesome app. Easy to learn and allows you to repeat words while knowing the meaning to them.
A great app for beginners. Easy interface. Lots of topics. The only minor setback is that there is no "back/previous" button.
Useful to have idea about words in Greek. It would be nice if there was an greek-latin alphabet section.

Some bad moments

You can not learn Greek as an absolute beginner with this app. With elementary Greek as a base, you can practice your vocabulary. Some English words are misspelled in the app, for what thats worth.
You seem to need to already know Greek to do anything with this app. I try clicking on the different categories but it wont tell me what anything is.
I know no Greek, and this was not a good introduction to it. It doesnt give you the alphabet to start so you dont understand what letters are making which sounds, and, unlike other Greek apps, it does not use the English alphabet spelling/pronunciation of the word underneath the Greek alphabet spelling to help you how to say it. Also, the audio goes very fast so it is even harder to understand, repeat, and learn the word. And aside from the clear issues of content, the app itself was poorly made. The vocabulary section for greetings (which is for some strange reason on the second page even though that would probably be the best place to start learning) is spelled "Greatings." Did no one look over this app? Every time I open this app, it has a notification asking for a rating (and in the notification, the word "please" is all-too-colloquially spelled "plz" several times, begging for a rating), so heres my review: this app is absolutely horrible. What a waste of time.
I really want to learn Greek and the language app I normally use doesnt have Greek on it yet so I wanted to use another app just to get a little ahead until Greek comes out on my usual app in a few weeks. I just downloaded this app and I already dont like it. I cant even hear the voice when I press the speaker button to hear how a word is said, and yes I had my volume up all the way. Id also like to learn the alphabet. Ill just wait till duolingo comes out with Greek.
Reading voice and vocabulary are great, the clapping is too loud and annoying. Problematic is wrong vocabulary e.g it says anikto but the spelling is φως
The app only gives you words. It does not teach you how to formulate sentences, or use proper grammar. Id love a refund.
