Test view:

If you want to change a word`s color you have to pass the test. There are 6 levels:
- red color from 0 to 10 points
- yellow color from 11 to 20 points
- green color from 21 to 30 points
- blue color from 31 to 40 points
- purple color from 41 to 50 points
- brown color from 51 points
- pink color under 0 points
At first all definitions start from 0 score. A correct answer adds one point to the word`s definition.
When a definition reaches 11 points, the word will change its color from red to yellow.

Ripe dictionary:

This is a smart dictionary. It collects words depending on their colors for your review. For example, if you touch some words with red color and some words with yellow color today, then tomorrow you will find in Ripe only red words and after tomorrow only yellow words.
Because the Red color means that you should revise the word daily. Yellow - every other day. Blue - every three days and the rarer the higher your level accordingly.

Wrong dictionary:

This is a temporary dictionary. It collects the words in which you made a mistake while doing the test. And a word will be removed when you touch it.

All dictionary:

Here all words are just sorted chronologically.
