I did a few "Hear it Say it". It plays right away but when I hit reveal it takes about 15 seconds to show the answer. Then when I enter a rating, another 15 second delay before the next test item is spoken. It was working a lot better yesterday. I have a hunch that the "points update fix" broke something else.
I expect to be able to play tracks quickly and to be able to run through the quizzes quickly. If the points can be redisplayed quickly enough, just aggregate them in the backgound and show the updated total when you have a chance.
Right now it is too slow to be usable.
