Hey all - just wanted to pass along a few thoughts on my user experience with Memrise via a iPad3. I really only study Mandarin word lists.
Big picture is that it is entirely usable, just has a few rough edges. With a minimum of optimization it could be tuned perfectly for iPad. Probably 85% of the way there already.
Here are a few items that I think need attention: 1. Mute button does not seem to work 2. Mute button does not retain its state, would expect it to stay muted until turned back on (or logout) 3. The drop down edit menu for words is too small to be usable. And having edit right next to ignore in this menu is a huge problem - since as far as I can tell there is no way to un-ignore in Memrise. One fat finger on a tiny screen and that word is gone forever. 4. If possible, mute button should block download not just playback to minimize mobile data load 5. After finishing a test, the formatting of the waypoint page are a bit messed up in landscape mode. Upper left menu partially obscured by graphics. 6. In landscape mode it would be great to adjust formatting so that one can see the pinyin or definition that appears in the upper right when a correct answer is typed in. Right I have to a really quickly scroll up or I miss it.
That's all for now. I love Memrise on iPad!
