What's New in Version 1.4.6
For me this is simply the best language learning app on the iPhone. I have been using this app for about 3 months and find that it's learning system really is effective. Learning in phrases rather than individual words or verb tables is incredibly effective and I think the most useful way of learning to actually be able to communicate effectively. This coupled with the excellent Memrise system for testing you on everything you have learned at once and focussing in on the phrases which you are weakest at as a priority, creates an incredibly effective language learning system.
A few minor gripes are that the conversations with Misha loose some of their flow in the later lessons, being more an answer to a single question or phrase rather than being part of a conversation, this takes away a little bit from the enjoyment. I would also love to see some kind of rating about best and worst phrases (perhaps categorising them as weak medium and strong) so that I can read over phrases which I know I struggle with and generally get a little bit more insight.
These are very minor points and represent personal preferences towards polishing an incredible app.
Don't hesitate to buy this!!!!!
Good app but.....
Love the first three free lessons - so want to purchase. I have tried over and over again but can't do it, keeps saying something went wrong and to try again. Got bored of trying!
UPDATE : managed to finally purchase. Have got to level 5 and it wants me to purchase again. Rather annoying. The lessons themselves I do like doing., but not enough to pay again. Update on update!! Cancel that - restore purchase button in settings sorted - thanks Lippatron.
I love this app!
Cat academy is the best language app I've used, previous ones either have too many bugs, don't suit my learning style or aren't interesting enough - thank goodness for this!! Teaching simple phrases first, practising the audio - options to skip, and so many levels for such a cheap price - fantastic! Kudos to the creators!
