Ratings and Reviews
Poor software, manipulated reviews
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!
Rocket Languages is working well for me (learning Italian), but the app itself needs work. e.g you can listen to the initial conversation in each lesson on your head phones / ear buds but as soon as you move into each lesson it cuts out your earphones (using iphone x). Also the language recognition component frequently goes AWOL (stops working) and thereby freezes up the app.
App is totally useless!
Why offer an app that doesn’t work!! Very disappointed. If you want to use this on an iPhone or ipad, DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS APP.
