I've tried many of the free Spanish vocab flash card apps.

I'm looking for more.

Are there any more advanced Spanish language apps that *really* teach the language, not just flashcards?

I've tried a few apps, but either they were too basic of a level, or they were boring/expensive/some other reason.

So, I'm still looking for a good iPhone/iPad app to use while on the go. I especially want/need to learn grammar.

Any recommendations?

Conjuverb is great (and free) if you're interested in studying verbs. 

Not sure about others though.. I'll certainly be checking back here to see what others write, cause I'm interested in the same thing!

It's a podcast, not an iPad/iPhone app, but Coffee Break Spanish offers 80 free podcast episodes (small fee for written material, which you don't really need). I did Coffee Bread French but I assume the Spanish version is equally effective and fun. I was amazed how much French  -- and useful French -- I picked up during my lunchtime walks.

I have a full review of Coffee Break French on my blog, http://www.thefrenchblog.com/p/others.html

Thanks. I got Conjuverb. Verbs are difficult for me, so that should help.

I'll have to try out Coffee Break Spanish again. I have a short attention span with podcasts, but it's free... worth a try again.

 

I got Maria's Spanish Class.  Not bad for the basics.

I also bought Hola Spanish Class. I really like this one. It has grammar articles. And, grammar and verb quizzes. The chalkboard writing font is a bit hard to read, but I like the app. It's more of a learning aid.

 

I haven't found one Spanish app that I feel I could really learn intermediate to advanced Spanish with.

Not a learning app, but as a dictionary I seriously doubt the "WordMagic" English-Spanish Dictionary can be beat. VERY comprehensive, and includes lots of phrases. Audio of words, and you can search the conjugated verb and it pops right up. Oh, I prefer the WordReference verb table format to this, but they do conjugate verbs for you also. (All off-line, to boot,)
Enjoy!

cant believe Duolingo hasn't been mentioned. I find this really good. Although if your Spanish is already quite good you will probably have to go through the basic stuff first

Nope, you can elect to do one of the 'tests' in between the 'tree' of lessons and the succesful completion of one will mark every lesson above that exam completed.
