What's New in Version 1.4.6
What's with the price increase?
I like the app itself; it is a fun and funny way to work on Spanish (albeit peninsular Spanish, not Latin American Spanish). My gripe (& reason for not giving this a higher review) is the price jump. I was an early adopter of the app and bought it for $1.99. This granted me access to all levels available. Then they made it free, but those who had already paid had bonus features or some other extras that I can't recall offhand. It had been awhile since I'd last used the app, so I thought I'd get back into it yesterday...only to discover that I can't go past level 3 (I was way beyond that when I last used it) unless I cough up $6.99. What?! Since when did they decide to do this? What about those of us who had already spent money on the app? Why can't i access any of my previous progress after level 3? If I pay the $6.99, can I get back to where I was, or do I have to start back at level 3? I don't know if I want to pay that much for an app, as I'll have spent close to $10 total between my initial purchase and the current price. I wish they hadn't jacked up the price and capped previous purchasers at a low level; otherwise, this was a fun app that I would've recommended for anyone learning Spanish.
Amazing app! Definitely worth it!
I absolutely have fallen in love with this app! It is adorable and very fun for children. I never knew I could learn so much so quickly! Although this app is seven dollars, trust me, it's worth it. CatSpanish teaches phrases you will need almost everyday. I have tried many language learning apps including Duolingo and they always start at the basics (colors, numbers, etc.) but I love CatSpanish because they teach such useful phrases! (And the occasional one for laughs: Mi profesor es un gato : My teacher is a cat). But, I warn you, just passing through each lesson is probably not enough. What I do is click the "My Learning" box in the bottom right hand corner. Then I click "Test Me". I do this after each lesson. I take the tests until I get a perfect score and strongly suggest you do the same, therefore reinforcing the lessons. This helps TONS. I also suggest putting flash cards up around your home just to learn some basic nouns.
So overall, I do strongly suggest you buy this app. It has helped me learn so much! Just make sure you always have a wifi hotspot or 3G, and an open mind! Adiós!
Exactly what it says it is
I am enjoying this app very much. This teaches you conversational Spanish. I am confident that my Spanish vocabulary will increase from 10 words (pre app) to 100 words (now) to 1000 words by the end of the app. It's easy to use it for a minute or two when waiting for something else. The cats make it funny and make some of the vocab words memorable. (When I learned "where is the fish?" I laughed out loud.) This isn't going to teach you to be fluent in Spanish, or how to write an essay in Spanish , but at the end of this app, you will know a lot more Spanish than you did when you started. I would recommend it. Definitely seven dollars worth of entertainment value and, as I said, it really does increase your knowledge of Spanish.
