I'm studying russian vocab right now with the Vocab Flashcards in RussianPod101

Initially I also found that 1000 most commonly used word list from Master Russian.
However the problem is that is it's just a big list with no context.

Exactly, context is everything. I always seem to remember specific vocab when I learn it through some text instead of using a flashcard app. This site has a few good ones with English translation on the side:

Beginners that are struggling with the grammar can probably benefit from focusing on one sentence at a time and trying to deconstruct it to check for agreement (e.g the ending of a particular noun to notice its gender, then focus on any adjective that describes the noun, try to notice prepositions and what cases they're followed by e.g из, от, в, на etc or try to think why a particular noun is in a certain case). I think this type of analysis is important due to the lack of gender and cases in English.
