Shinun is a flashcard-based vocabulary building tool for both Biblical Hebrew and New Testament Greek, written as a Universal app for both iPhone/iPod touch and iPad. For either language, vocabulary may be selected by frequency for all words, or for verbs, nouns, adjectives, prepositions, or particles.

For convenience, the application is also keyed to the vocabulary lists of some of the most popular grammars in use today, which are listed below. For those users who desire to directly manage their drill content, Shinun provides the capability to create custom word lists (iPad only).

The controls are meant to be intuitive analogues to physical flashcards. Swipe left to move to the next vocabulary card. Swipe vertically to alternate between the front and back sides of the card. To select a new card as well as flip it over, just double-tap.

Please note that Shinun is meant as a memorization aid for vocabulary, not pronunciation. It does not contain built-in vocalization samples of Hebrew or Greek words, but the screen content may be accurately read using VoiceOver (iOS 8 required for reading Hebrew).

Vocabulary from the following Biblical Hebrew grammars are supported:

• Duane A. Garrett and Jason S. DeRouchie, A Modern Grammar for Biblical Hebrew (Nashville: B&H Publishing Group, 2009).

• Jo Ann Hackett, A Basic Introduction to Biblical Hebrew (Peabody, Mass.: Hendrickson, 2010).

Vocabulary from the following New Testament Greek grammars are also supported:
