We hope to see you again on busuu one day!

Very good. UPDATED

Giuseppe Campo

I really like this app. I've been using it for about 3-4 days now and decided to buy the full version. I am very satisfied thus far.

This is packed with a lot of content. If you do however buy the full version, you will have to sit there and wait to load everything into your phone. You will have to click on the courses then it will start to update/download full content one at a time... This does take a long time and you have to babysit your phone so it doesn't shut off (you will have to re-download). This took me roughly 45 minutes to an hour to download all content to phone.

Also, please allow us to check messages and do more within the app, as oppose to launching the website.

Great tool


This was a nice extra tool to have while learning Italian. I really enjoyed doing the short lessons on my train commute. However, I upgraded to the iPhone 5 about a month after purchasing this app and now it will not update to my purchased status. I tried to reload previously purchased content 6 times and each time got an error message. It's too bad because I was only on beginner Level 1 and would have liked to continue working with this system. At this point I just don't want to pay twice for these lessons.
I also wish the mobile and desktop versions would sync up to show exercises as complete on desktop once they have been completed on the phone. So far these are my only gripes...
