Says it's adding new words, but I don't see them

Lately while I'm studying (on iPad) Skritter keeps saying "new word added", but even though I have cleared my items due several times and kept studying, I don't see any new words! I don't think I've seen a new word in a month or more.

Is something wrong? Or do I need to keep plowing through the old words for a few hours before it shows the new ones?

Yeah, that sounds a little sketchy. To restore order to the universe and justice to your app, I think you'll just have to clear local data at the bottom of the Settings>Account page. Sorry about the inconvenience, but this usually ends up fixing any rare syncing/adding bugs that transpire.

Ok, I tried clearing the local data, but it doesn't seem to make a difference. After clearing local data, I studied for about 30 minutes and didn't see a single new word. It's staying at ~1-3 "due items", sometimes 0, no matter how many reviews I do.

When I try studying (just for a few words) on the web, it seems like it might be giving me new words. But I don't really wanna use the web version, so... :P
