    Hi all,
    as I'm pretty overwhelmed with the great range of apps I'd like to ask for some help. I'm looking for a learning app, but one that is easy to use and where I don't have to create my flashcards myself.

    Can anybody suggest any? I'm willing to spend some bucks for a good one.

    A search in Itunes shows many teaching apps...Mandarin and other versions of Chinese seem well covered.

    See the attached image. I can't vouch for them, but maybe try one of the free ones first?

    I already did a seach and as I said, there are so many. I tried a couple of the free ones and although they would do in the end, none is exactlly what I'm looking for.

    I guess if there are no recommendations, then look at the prices...It's normally true that you get what you pay for...Look for something that comes in at a rosetta stone price...Not cheap, but should be full featured and RS uses a picture based "speak as you learn" system....No flash cards needed:

    Ouch! But it works on Mac and IOS devices according to the ads....It's an awful lot of money though....Maybe it's cheaper where you are.

    I said "some" bucks, not an awful lot ;) I don't need a complete learning system, just something to complement my courses. I'd love some preinstalled or downloadable sets of flashcards or something like that, maybe as a game. It's really time consuming if you have to create your own flashcards.
