My Macbook Pro, running on Mavericks, will not let me install the app saying that it is downloaded from internet and may not be safe.

How to resolve?

Me and my wife LOVE this app! So instead waiting for someone to make an iPad/iPhone app for it, we are going to develop one and we need your help to beta test it when it is ready. We made a short video about us and why we are developing Genius+. You can also sign up for beta testing through this link also. DaGeniusLab.com/beta

Is there a way to upload somehow a list of words with the translation to the app? Or do I have to type them by hands?

Like this piece of software very much from the moment I started using it to study words and expressions in another language. Would like it very much if there was although a version for iOS, to use the same software for studying on my iPad, with use of the data on my Mac via Dropbox.
I am sure that I will find other 'jobs' in which Genius will help me memorize.

This is an excellent, elegant, tiny little application that does exactly what it's meant to do. Lovely! I've never had any stability issues with it: it Just Works, and is a most useful study assistant. I love it.

I must add my voice though as YA Kanji learner. The option to increase the font size on the study cards themselves would be extremely welcome to those of us studying Japanese or Chinese characters. Sometimes even the kana are hard to make out. It would be a boon to the visually impaired, as well... always a good thing.

Great application! Make it work (sync) with an iPhone application and it would be perfect!

just a quick review, as i am in the heat of cramming for the basic standard japanese test. given that, i thought i would try some other flashcard apps. i have to say, genius is the best. doesn't have some of the fancy features - but for me, the interval recall algorithm at work in genius is perfect. i learn more and learn faster. other apps i tried seemed to have too many options, approaches or features. genius is spot on. as i mentioned before, if ONLY, specifically for learning japanese kanji (or chinese characters i suppose), there was a way to increase the font size. that said, you cannot learn kanji with genius - its just too small to see all the strokes for most characters. please! i beg you! and, maybe an iphone version! :-)

From the Genius Menu click Preferences, under Document Window select Extra Large list text. Does this help?

i agree - if the font size could be a choice, this would be perfect. i tried provoc recently - but, i think genius integrates "interval recall" in a better way - i am switching back already, as i seemed to retain faster with genius. but, for japanese, yes way too small... please!

Great application!
One small problem: I use Genius mainly for studying Japanese, and sometimes the Kanji (those complicated characters, also used in chinese) are too small to read when I'm quizzing! Is there a way to increase the font size / change the default Japanese font for quizzes?

I'm a freshman in high school. So I have a lot of studying to do. I was looking for a program that would help me study, especially for French. I downloaded this program, and immediately began using it for my French vocab.

I was amazed. I learned more within the first ten minutes of using the study feature, then I would have in two class periods. It was especially helpful because I am a very visual learner.

However I found that a feature that would allow me to fill in all the "Group" and "Note" area would have been useful.I also realized that the program isn't meant for audio, which is very important in language learning. However the great features of the program outweigh the bad. It took me n time at all to figure out how to use the features.

I can't wait to use Genius next year when I'm in Honors Chemistry! Thanks so much for making a great program, it's worth giving a donation! Can't wait to see how they will improve the program...
