Perfect app. Love the learning system. I had the "unlock" problem too, but I think that was because I had switched to an iPhone from my iPad. I wrote to Braisncape and they took care of it. You should not have to pay twice

I love this app so much. I travel a lot and I go to foreign countries yearly. It's a great tool to communicate with people who don't speak the same language and you can still learn by practicing a new language in the audio section. This app rocks!!

So easy to use


This app makes learning Chinese seem fun. I can pick up and do a quick study session no matter where I am, it's a must have!
