Hi. I travel a lot for my work and will basically not have the time to lug a giant book around. Most books are pretty unwieldy. I have the Official Guide 12th Edition, and the 8 prep books by Manhattan GMAT.

Net net - I want to have all my stuff on an iPhone.

I found:

1. The Gmat Club Toolkit, which is $25! This is quite expensive. The interface seems more advanced than any app, but there's a lot of useless stuff too. I just need to have my prep books and my practice tests, that's it.

2. The Official Review 12th edition -- this is by far the best, simplest, no-nonsense interface. It seems the entire study section is in here (am I right?) but for practice, there are only 50 questions *in total*. This makes this app a little useless!

3. The Veritas Prep software. This is quite well done too, the interface is nice and free. But again, limited questions.

4. The Manhattan GMAT "Flashcards". This truly is very annoying interface. Why should landscape mode on the iPhone be the only option? I am forced to hold the phone sideways, which after 5 mins is pretty cumbersome and tiring.

5. The Manhattan study guides. I bought one. This is hideously done. The interface is crap. It's times new roman font -- double spaced, so to read about five lines I scroll twice. WTF.

So - my request/question:

Which app can I download that has a comprehensive study guide AND a wholesome set of questions with timing / flagging to come back later / error explanations?

How I wish the Official Guide iphone app also included all the questions from the book.

Appreciate any thoughts/experiences.

Thanks!

Actually, I notice this screenshot from the GMAT Club Toolkit page:

(I am new to the forum, and there's a stupid limitation that I need 5 posts before I can post URLs.)

In that screenshot, the "My Set" thing has over 2,600 questions. Where do I get those?

You could take one or two books on each trip to do and scan or photo copy the OG questions for those books.

Our app can only have our content. If we put OG content in our app, we'd be violating GMAC's terms of use.

There are kindle/ebook reader version for some of the books. That's probably the closest thing.

PS: Life is not about being convenient for you.
