In the interest of not making a new thread I will post here. I have been using the iphone app as well as the website. While using the iphone app I have, on occasion, messed up and hit the check button before I finish typing the sentence. This should lead to a lost heart however if the sentence has been typed correctly to that point the app tells me I am correct and proceeds on with the lesson without penalty. This has happened a few times and only in questions that require a manual entry through the key board.

On a related note for keyboard entry requirements for the iphone it would be nice if the check button moved to the top of the text box to minimized accidental pressing while using the keyboard

If you have one misspelling we let it slide. Is that what you're talking about?

Yep, Powerwig has it right. I have had it happen with as little one correct word typed to three or four out of a six of seven word sentence. Does not happen every time but I'm clumsy enough with my thumb to have observed it a few times.
