Free iPhone app for NGSL Now Available

7/4/2014 Celebrate Independence Day by downloading our free NGSL iPhone app. Called "NGSL Builder" the app gives you access to the full list in bands of 100 words which you can email to yourself, gives background and introduction to the list and a fully functional spaced-repetition flashcard system to help you quickly master these important words. Though it doesn't have an LMS (leaner management system) it does have the ability to email flashcard progress to  your teacher. There are also (free) in-app purchases for our other apps (GSL Builder, AWL Builder and NAWL Builder). Enjoy!
