What's New in Version 2.2
Thank you for updating this Michel Thomas app. We’ve fixed the freezing and crashing bugs and our app is now compatible up to iOS 8.3, and both iPhone and iPad.
If you enjoy this app please leave a review.
This version is useless... But the app is great
Resuming my Spanish studies, the first thing I did was return to the app. I love the method and how it has me building sentences in my head right from the start. This version solves the multitasking issue (I can lock my phone or open another app and it keeps playing- yay!), but has a bigger bug. Every time I open the app, I have to re-download all of the lessons. On the days that I'm not around wi-fi at all, this means that I can't even use the app.
Please fix this and I can write the stunning review this app needs. While you're at it... I like to listen with my headphones while I'm cleaning. However, I can't pause the app with the buttons on my headphones. If I could do this, the app would be awesome.
Do not download to idevices running 10.2.1 and up
I've used Michel Thomas 5+years ago to learn Spanish. It was an incredible tool. Loved it.
I immediately thought of this program when the need to learn French recently came up. Problem being, this app is old and outdated, and has not been maintained to function well with the 10.2.1 iOS. Once content is downloaded it seems fine, but the time and babysitting required to constantly resume downloading of this content is hardly worth the $7 per hour you pay. I still haven't successfully downloaded the first hour, and I've spent over an hour trying to download it. As much as I love Michel Thomas' approach to language learning, I wouldn't suggest this app any longer for the technical issues.
User Interface Height Issue with the New Update . . . Please Fix
I love this language app, BUT the most recent update appears to only be designed with the new iPod touch in mind, as the app’s user interface extends longer than the screen height of my iPod touch 4th Generation with iOS 6.1.6. I am no longer able to play any of my purchased lessons because the start/play button is completely off the screen, and there isn’t a scroll bar to scroll down.
The previous version was fully functional on my iPod, but this most recent update has made the app nonfunctional for me … please fix this!
