By the way, can we make an app so that you could import your own questions? (for yourself only of course)

What I am thinking is enable people to import their own questions from any source for example questions that they have purchased or ones they keep making mistakes in but just can't get on the iPhone? This way we stay out of the whole copyright issue that I am not a fan of and give all the control into user's hands....

We can publish the schema or format for entering questions and let them have at it.... they can even invent their own.

This is exactly what I was trying to suggest in my next post!

However, the problem is that many users might struggle to upload questions in a format that the app can understand.
That is why! - we need to build an app so that it definitely works on multiple sources.

Yeah, sure :wink:

I think we can make a very simple format - similar to what we use on this forum - anyone can figure it out - even an MBA. This will enable people to compliment GMAT Club's tests. However, I don't think we know if it is possible even at this stage.

I would argue for the sake of product life (you never know what new prep materials will be out in a few months) and copyright issues that we should keep the app open ended as to where users have ability to control what they put on it in addition to GMAT Club's test. So, I would see this feature as complimenting our tests and making the app more versatile.

Why not have a paid version and a free version.

I'm absolutely agree with you and am a strong supporter of paid-approach. It is a great that I want to spend some of my free time to help GMATClub but I'm not a professional software developer and too complicate app will take a lot of time for me to finish. Moreover, in a long-run, I believe income from GMATClub app has to be enough to hire a smart developer(s) who could enforce improvement of the app. So, If I were GMATClub owner, I would consider paid approach as a basis for future development of a strong product.

good idea.

Why two different versions? I can understand from a developer perspective it is easier to develop, but why from a user standpoint?

I agree.

Sure paid version makes sense to get developers put bells and whistles, but only after we squeeze everything out of Walker :)
No need to be modest.

Speaking of which, looks like Veritas Released their Apple iPhone application today: http://appshopper.com/education/gmat-practice-quiz

Perhaps someone can share what they think about the app and provide suggestions for improvement. I promise - I will buy an iPod soon :oops:

I think there will be many such apps in near future but there are a huge barrier for their development: they must not substitute real 1000$-worth education in prep-centers.

Me too, but I think Blackberry is harder to develop for.... Walker, do you have any ideas about Blackberry? How easy/hard is it to develop?

I'm not familiar with Blackberry as I have never seen Blackberry here in my country. Nevertheless, if GMATClub iPhone projects and my own ones are successful and RIM launches own AppStore (I've already taken a look at their site a few days ago and seen they are going to launch it in near future), I don't see any solid reasons why not to try.

The list is endless.... windows mobile, palm *, blackberry, iphone.
The major market is probably going to be iphone and windows mobile.
As long as it works on these 2 , it will have a large potential base.

The features listed in the thread are great. I can think of the following which
might be helpful and add value compared to existing s/w:

* Questions and theory sorted by area. The GMAT club tests and verbal cover
a large number of questions, which could be sorted and used as initial data.
(e.g. In Quant: Number theory/Geometry/Inequalities! /Probablity etc)
( e,g. In verbal: tense/subj-verb/pronouns/etc).
* Ability to make/add note similar to an editable error log/tracker.
* Adding a level to question would be awesome.

I think the biggest issue with a GMAT app for quant problems is that it is not convenient to do scratch work. You cannot solve most math questions without writing things down, and that is hard to do if you are using it on the go.

Therefore I feel that this application would be of limited utility.

However, focusing on sentence correction can lead to an extremely useful app. Sentence correction are extremely well suited for learning on the go, without the need to write things down. But sentence correction is probably the hardest thing to create content for, with only Manhattan GMAT creating good material there.

Yeah. It is a problem I have been thinking for a while how to overcome it. I see two possible solutions: 1) development of adapted quantitative questions that test GMAT concepts but don't require scratch work; 2) turn iPhone into scratch paper. Both approaches are not easy ones but it is definitely a problem we have to keep in mind.

A few minutes ago application's prototype has been launched on my iPhone for the first time and it works as expected. So, we are close to finish line....

I am a BB user myself and I think many others are too, so that would be next logical step. BB has just launched thier own APP store yesterday, so will take a while to figure out all the details. The question is though how much time Walker has.
