Duplicate words in vocabulary

Hello, I started practicing older lessons today and now suddenly some duplicates of previously learned words have popped up in the vocabulary. What could have happened? I made a screenshot from the Basics 1 vocabulary: http://i.imgur.com/jWIA9wK.png

Hi! Thanks for the screenshot. What you're seeing is two different 'apfels' (one is accusative and the other is nominative). Apfel doesn't change between the two cases, however, some nouns do, so we make a distinction. We'll work on making this more clear. Sorry for the confusion!

Wow, I didn't know that they were divided by case! Interesting! :)

any reason not to give the case along with the gender when listing the various forms of a word?
