Poor software, manipulated reviews

Gobbli Oodigli

Glad they've given users the ability to cancel voice recording. However, it's still terrible in the app. I would say after the initial lessons with one or two word phrases, it fails to catch what I say or thinks I said something completely different over 75% of the time. My internet connection is completely fine and I know my pronunciation is not that bad. If the voice recognition is a selling point for you, think again. It has been a constant frustration the whole time I've been using this app - it's a little better on my computer, but I would prefer using the app. Unfortunately, I cannot change my initial favourable review on the Rocket Languages website, which I wrote after completing my free trial and getting a $10 discount to submit. So beware the favourable reviews you see online for this program.

Other points: the app misses activity points and you have to restart the app to complete a section. Also, the presentation of some of the audio lessons is really weird. Sometimes the instructor is antagonistic to the listener and lesson 3.2 is blantanly sexist. Be careful with the trial lessons, because they've clearly put their effort into perfecting those ones.

You might also like to know that we are working on a complete upgrade of the app which should improve your experience on mobile devices. Thank you for your patience!

Love the app

Shelley in Calgary

Using it to learn Arabic. It breaks down conversations nicely, easy to use and many ways to test and reinforce what you've learned.

A Terrible App


I am having so much trouble with this app that I am at the point where I have decided not to purchase the service. It works fine with my laptop, but the app is terrible. It keeps cutting out my Bluetooth headset (which continues to work perfectly with other apps). Without the headset, the voice recognition is so glitchy that the app is unusable. Completely frustrating, and really bad for Rocket Languages, since it seems like a really good language learning system.
