8-) Yesterday, our two applications, GMAT Toolkit and GMAT Club, became #1 and #2 paid GMAT preparation applications in USA AppStore for the first time! Although we have realized only 10% of all our ideas, it is a good sign to go ahead!

Thanks a lot, guys!!! It wouldn't be possible without you and your feedback! A little surprise for you will be unveiled soon ;)

Although Blackberry are not our high priority task, I think we are close to take this direction into account.

Good luck!
Warm regards,
Walker

Hi Walker,
I use the GMAT toolkit i really liked it.
I still Dont follow what does just the Idioms Alone will do wiht out a Proper Usage in a Sentence..(light me up if i am Stupid in Asking this )
say for eg.
idiom # 208
seperate From.

and it looks blank So may i know What shud i do now .i shook it it gave me another this time i got
idiom # 3
mandate/require
that do have a Sentence usage of the Idiom.. .

Will you add sentence usage of the idiom which will be good or Can you guys do like Adding a Icon Say Flip it to See back Side of the Card to give more details about the Idiom.
I think we have GMAT toolkit made this much Interactive i dont think this will not be that much effort to put this in the Next Update ..

Thanks a lot for your words and feedback!

We are now working on adding examples for each idiom. Only a few idioms have examples and I hope we will finish with this in a few weeks.

Flip card? Great idea! +1, Definitely I will add this functionality to the next update.

If you have any other suggestion/idea, please, let me know.

Not sure whats up, but the app is buggy for me. I have a first generation iPod touch. I had to pay $5 for the version 3.0 apps update (mines was version 1).

Anyways, I bought it because I thought the timer that grades my answers in OG made it worth it.

So I go into Books > OG12 > Diagnostic and start doing the questions. I realize that when I must press a question number, a flag next to it turns green. When I press the green flag, a timer starts and the flag turns black and white. When I'm ready to choose my answer, I press the black and white flag and at the bottom of the screen ABCDE shows up. I thought it was such a hassle that I had to do this same process for each question. Then when I get to #48, I entered my answer and it automatically started the timer for #49 and the flag turned black and white. So I put my answer in and it went to #50.

I tried this out in other books and could not get the timer to run automatically. The only books where the timer runs automatically are in the Diagnostic questions after #48 in OG11 and OG12.

Should it be going to the next question automatically or I'm supposed to press each question myself? Or am I having a brain fart and am using the program incorrectly?

Also, a feature to email your answers, incorrect/correct, and time from the OG books would be awesome. I noticed that you could do it for the Timer, but not the for the OG books.

Thanks a lot for your feedback!

It works automatically only for RC questions. But I see your point... Let me think a bit what scenario would be better...

What about this way:

1. Tap any question - green (start) flag appears
2. Tap green flag - time starts and black/white flag appears
.... 2 minutes....
3. Tap black/white flag and answers appears
4. Tap answer - jump to the next question with running timer and black/white flag
.... 2 minutes....
5. Tap black/white flag and answers appears
6. Tap answer - jump to the next question with running timer and black/white flag
.... 2 minutes....
7. Tap black/white flag and answers appears
8. Tap answer - jump to the next question with running timer and black/white flag
.... 2 minutes....
9. Tap black/white flag and answers appears
10. Tap answer - jump to the next question with running timer and black/white flag
11. Tap a "new button" - timer stop, green flag appears.

Moreover I can remove double check for answer (tap black/white flag and then an answer) and add choice one tap/double check mode into settings for Books. So, it may work this way:

1. Tap any question - green (start) flag appears
2. Tap green flag - time starts and answers appear
.... 2 minutes....
3. Tap answer - jump to the next question with running timer and answers section
.... 2 minutes....
4. Tap answer - jump to the next question with running timer and answers section
.... 2 minutes....
5. Tap answer - jump to the next question with running timer and answers section
.... 2 minutes....
6. Tap answer - jump to the next question with running timer and answers section
7. Tap a "new button" - timer stop, green flag appears.

What do you think? I hope I can change it today, submit for review and it will be available in a week.

Thanks again for valuable feedback!

How is this supposed to work? Should it be going to the next question automatically or I'm supposed to press each question myself?

Oh, I get it now.

It's only goes to the next question for Verbal questions. That makes sense.

How about an option to turn it on or off for quant?

Also, an analysis feature for OG answers that display your Incorrect answers by topic and time spent would be AMAZING!

Also, I've known about this program for about a week, but i never knew that it checked your answers for you. That was a huge selling point for me and I feel like on the top post and on the iTunes app page it is not clearly stated why this program is so awesome.

Then again, maybe its just me and its my own fault for not bothering to read the whole description. It seems like everyday I find something awesome about this website that I didn't know about previously.

Top feature requests for me would be:
- analysis of incorrect by topic/time
- emailing my OG answers with the time and correct answers (I don't trust my iPod and am afraid I might accidentally clear the history?)
- i noticed on Timer you could name Custom answer sheets, it would be great to see it on OG logs too! I plan on going through the book again to see which I keep getting wrong.

Wow! a lot of great ideas!

1. So, today I'm going to add "continuous" mode to timer for Book and submit it for review
2. Incorrect answers and "out of 2 minutes" answers by topics. Great idea and it is pretty simple to add the feature. We will do it.
3. Checking answers. You know, it is a great point, seriously :)
4. emailing your answers. Easy to add. I will add it in this update.
5. Custom name for Books... What if I add ability to see only questions answered wrong? not easy to do now but it seems to be very useful.

Thanks for useful feedback! Now I have to act fast :wink:

walker,

I just didn't notice it was only for Verbal.

I like the way it is now, but the new sequence you posted might be better. I'd like to be able to turn it on and off though. This new sequence would definitely help me out because I frequently miss-tap and fail to notice that the timer hasn't started. I only notice the timer hasn't started when I'm ready done solving the question so its already too late.

Same goes for the confirm answer button. It only seems like a hassle now, but I'm sure accidentally miss-tapping the screen would be more annoying. The OG books should have all the features of the Timer!

One more feature suggestion:
BIGGER flag AND answer choices!

Sadly, my test is on Jan 16 so I probably won't get the chance to see any of these features. :(

BTW, I feel like I'm complaining. I just want to make it clear that I love the program!!! It's great the way it is and would recommend it to anyone!

5. Custom name for Books... What if I add ability to see only questions answered wrong? not easy to do now but it seems to be very useful

Yeah, that would be perfect. The only reason I suggested this was so I could see which one I got wrong on my second attempt or third attempts.

One last option:
-show or hide incorrect/correct- A feature so I can choose whether or not I got an OG question correct or incorrect after tapping in my answer because I'd rather wait till I'm done. The instant gratification of knowing I got an answer correct is great, but whenever I answer incorrectly, I (besides getting angry :lol:) flip to the back of the book and spend 5mins reading the answer. Again, maybe its just me, but I feel like it would better simulate test conditions and overall help me with my timing.

For real though, I wish I knew about this sooner! Is the OG Books feature new or did I just not notice it until now?

On the first post, you should put the price at the bottom because that was the first thing I noticed. This was my exact train of thought the first time I saw the page, I immediately felt like it was too much and this website was trying to rip me off or take my money. I felt my suspicions were then justified because I skimmed the description/features and couldn't understand what the program did. (I came back to this post and researched it more because of the GMAT Math Book and Bunuel's posts)

It needs a better description too because the best selling point is the grade book/logger for the OG books.
Why do you need this?
Save time and paper. GMAT Toolkit grades your answers as you go!

If I read something like that, I probably would have researched more and I would have bought this weeks ago! But maybe the Books feature is new??

Seriously, everytime I go on this website I find something even more helpful!!

Hello GMAT Club Mobile Users,

Next update of GMAT ToolKit has been submitted and will be available in a week. We would like to thank members ael719 and vasanthanand for great feedback!
(discussion of the GMAT Toolkit is available here)

Improved Books tool:

We are working on adding examples for idioms, new math topics, and a few surprises ;)

Thank you for your feedback! If you have any suggestions or ideas, just let us know and we will do our best to implement them as soon as possible!

Warm Regards,

Walker

It would be great to have our applications for majority of mobile phones and I hope we will make next step in this direction soon but it will be rather BlackBerry or Android than Nokia.

Hello GMAT Club Mobile Users,

A new update for GMAT ToolKit app is available - it was approved in record 28 hours! Usually it takes up to 2 weeks from submission until the update is released and we can't believe our luck. If it's a change in Apple's policy, it's great news as we can implement your suggestions and ideas within days. And as always, if you have any thoughts about our applications and community, we look forward to hearing from you.

Warm Regards,

Walker
