I have problems with the vocab builder on my smartphone (IPhone 5s). Everything works fine until I come to the categorie "Seasons 1". After the first word the app gets stuck. I have tried to reinstall the app several times but I always get stuck in this catogorie. Today I bought the upgrade "Vocab Builder Pro" and thought I could just skip the invalid part but this does not work either. The new categorie has to get unlocked by solving the previous but this doesn't work as I tried to explain above.
Has anybody made the same experience? How can I solve the problem?

Actually, I had the same problem, also with Seasons1 on my Android (GL). It was a while ago though and I forgot how I finally found a workaround. But I did. I think it was some going back and forth between Domesticated Animals and Seasons 1.

Hi Jana,
thanks for your answer. I will try that. Maybe it will work!

I tried about 100 times to go back and forth but still the same problem. :crazy:
Are there any other ideas about what might cause the problem?
I will probably reset the statistics and work myself up again (it will probably do no harm to repeat everything... ;) ).
In the meantime I am open to any other suggestions :D

I would like to say how much I like this app. I have been using this to build my lakota vocabulary. I started learning Lakota on a long road trip (2,000 miles) back from Canada so it started out as an immersion using this and another app (FHQ Tribal Council Lakota app) I have noticed a few differences between the two, but overall they seem pretty complementary.

I am signed up to do some Lakota Studies this summertime and am looking forwards to learning more!

What I like about this app is how it builds and introduces vocabulary step-by-step and therefore forces me to concentrate on little bits at a time, which is the best way to learn.

Taŋyáŋ yahí (Welcome)
I highly recommend the
Lakȟótiya Wóglaka Po (Speak Lakota) books available from the LLC Bookstore (or Amazon) They are very helpful ( and the Lakota dictionary) Have a look at the first SoW (Sentence of the week) As you know a little you should be able to try that. They are correct thanks to Caroline and Daniel so you'll know how you are doing.
Enjoy your learning.
Tókša :)

tHihaŋŋi Wašte Thank you Jac and Nokoma, I appreciate it. I think I'm doing pretty good. I got a reply from David and he explained what I needed to do, but now that you mention it, I have not gone to SOW 9sentence off the week). I will do that and I appreciate you all helping me to learn and grow with these teachings, A'HO Mitakuyapi.

Hau, Mitákuyepi,

this app is actually the first one I bought full version - or bought at all - in many years to get the full version! It costs about 1 Buck. Which is to cheap imho!!
Very helpful, very well structured. Apart from books one of the best ways to get into the vocab of the language - if You cant talk to native speakers ... who are VERY rare in Germany. ;)

I also have the FHQ Tribal Council. Good one as well, but unfortunately sometims writing and speaking does not match. Mabye due to dialects. Which makes it a bit tricky sometimes.
Still my second choice of apps at the moment. Seems to be dine for children as well, because there are very funny ways of teaching, using quizzes and games. Love it.

I also have the app Dakota Dictionary. Sioux Valley Dakota Nation Dictionary. However - maybe it is my phone but the accoustics are not very well made. Like listening from very far back of a room. Although there seems to be great effort in structuring the vocabs in iteself, for me its no use of using it right now.
