Thanks!

I have a great news: Princeton Review is coming to the GMAT ToolKit with almost 200 questions and explanations as well as information about classes and company's news. 1.3.8 update has been submitted for review.

Toolkit has come such a long way, great job walker!

Some thoughts:
The YouTube demo could use a narrator/voice over or at least some cheesy transition music on the intro logo/icon. Maybe there's some kudos for people willing to write a script or volunteer their voice? (If given a script to read, I'd definitely be willing audition my voice talent ;) )

Also, I bet there'd be a couple of kudos points for anyone willing to write a How-to Guide or Instruction Manual post to help new users get the most out of the Toolkit.

I'd like to help GMATclub out and volunteer these things myself, but I can't let myself get distracted right now as I am almost done with the CPA exam!

Other thoughts/feature requests:
- iPad Screen Resolution Support? The 1x zoom is ok, but native full screen would be nice.
- Or maybe even an iPad Special Edition with extra features that take advantage of the screen size and landscape view. For example, the ability to type notes on (Books/Timer/Practice Set) questions or a scratch paper/drawing area to workout math problems by finger as a stylus? I'd guess implementing those 2 features would take some time, but definitely be baller status!
- For the Voices, you should also put in a "Shake" button like in Idioms... shaking an iPad is a two handed effort!
- Maybe add a dedicated "Help" icon with How-to/Getting-Started info? It might be useful for those without WiFi/3G and can't access the forum.


*Note: I haven't really used the ToolKit since January and have only played around with it on occasion to sample the new features/updates. My apologies if any of my suggestions already exist.

**Note 2: FWIW, my iPod Touch was stolen so now I'm using Toolkit on my new iPad.

Thanks ael719 for ideas! I will implement them in next updates.
Good luck with CFA!

More and more people ask me about iPad. I'm now working on it and I hope to release it soon as an update.

1.3.8 update is available for download with 181 questions + explanations from our partner Princeton Review.

We are now testing next 1.4.0 update with iPad support and I hope we will submit it for review next week.

Jcurry, sorry, no plans for Palm so far. Let's see how popular Palm platform will be in the future.

Best,
Walker

The app comes loaded with 528 gmat questions (math and verbal) from GMAT Club, Manhattan Review, and Princeton Review.
It also allows you to download additional questions from the forum free of charge.

Hi Akg123,

We don't have interface for full-time tests because it's difficult to spend 3 hours with iPhone without pauses. At the same time working on each question separately allow you to see answer and explanation right after you answered it.

Verizon does not offer iPhone. Only AT&T.

Walker/bb,

Is there a way I can limit to number of questions for a custom set test? Say for example can I create a filter by selecting SC & CR and want to limit myself to 20 questions?

The app is optimized for mobile environment and instead of solve-solve-solve-review-review-review approach the app uses solve-review-solve-review approach. In other words, you work with individual questions rather than test and can limit yourself by 20, 10 or even 1 question. There is no need to finish all questions before reviewing answers/explanations.

Surjoy, why do you need to limit the number of questions and why current solution is not working for you? Please, give me more information.

Hmm..I could not find a way to review the answers before complete all the filter questions. Let me try again and get back to you. Thx.

We have finished 1.4.0 beta update with iPad support. I hope it will take one week for us to polish the beta and submit the update for review in the AppStore.

We are looking for up to 3 current GMAT ToolKit users who would like to help us with beta testing and ... to get something up and running on their iPads ASAP.
Please, pm me.

Best,
Walker
