Version 3.6.1

Version 3.6.1 resolves a crash which occurs when launching the latest version on some devices after not using the application in a long time.

In version 3.6, we've introduced an entirely new sync engine which is faster, more reliable, and more energy-efficient. If you are one of our users with dozens of study sets and hundreds of hours of progress, this update is for you.

Sync backs up your data in the cloud, enables you to see your study sets and progress on more than one device, and allows AccelaStudy to be shared by multiple users on a single device. The new sync engine was over 4 years in the making and we have big plans for it in future releases.

As always, thank you for using AccelaStudy. We're honored that you include our application in your learning efforts.

Version 3.5.0

Introducing AccelaStudy 3.5, Space-Saving Edition! AccelaStudy has always come packaged with professionally-recorded, high-quality audio files. These files are large and take up a lot of space on the device. While these audio files are part of what makes AccelaStudy great, not all users need or want them, and they make app updates large and slow to install. With this release, the audio files are no longer included with the app itself and require a one-time download from the AccelaStudy Cloud. For those who choose to use AccelaStudy without downloaded audio, AccelaStudy will use one of the great built-in voices that come with iOS. AccelaStudy has also been updated for iOS 10 and new iPhone models.

Version 3.1.0

Version 3.1.0 brings a great new feature to our vocabulary builder applications: Handsfree studying!

Audio has now been professionally recorded for every definition so with Handsfree, AccelaStudy can now present the definition audio followed by the word audio after a short pause. This is great for driving or jogging where you want to quiz yourself on vocabulary without looking at or touching the screen.

Version 3.1.0 also delivers several performance improvements.

AccelaStudy can now be shared among family members and classmates. Signing out of AccelaStudy allows another user to sign in with their account while preserving all data in the cloud.

If you have multiple AccelaStudy apps, one AccelaStudy Cloud account can be used for all of them. Simply create an account with the first app and then sign into that account from all the other apps.

You don’t have to create an AccelaStudy Cloud account. If you don’t want the awesome benefits of having an AccelaStudy Cloud account, you can still continue using AccelaStudy the way you always have.
