Do you have any suggestions for how Logos can be used for improving our Greek and Hebrew vocab, please?

There is a Logos Flashcard app  mentioned here. It can be integrated with Logos word lists. Plus, there are lots of word lists based on various grammars that are available. However, it doesn't look like they're doing much to develop this, and it has a lot of shortcomings.

One thing I used to do by hand is create and fully learn a complete word list of a passage I'm studying (say, Mark 1), then do thorough translation work without having to look anything up. I've found that's a good way of learning vocab, especially if you turn off all interlinears! However, you might spend just as much time learning a hapax as you do a more widely used word, so this method also has shortcomings.

I've done other things, usually variations of what I've already stated, but what would be most ideal is if they could update the Flashcard app to be more useful. (There are other flashcard apps that are much more powerful. A blending of a Logos word list with one of these apps may also be very cool.

Finally, there are products available for just this purpose:

Here, and here, and here, but I haven't used them and cannot testify as to their effectiveness.

I am not a fan of cards with simple glosses. I believe the answer is read, read, read ... then read some more.

When I initially saw this thread my first response to read as well although I do think that there is some initial value of learning some basic vocabulary when first learning.
