Customer Reviews

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.

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!

Good App

It would be nicer if you could fix it so it will play in the background.
Passive learning is very effective.

Can we get rid of the beeps in the other languages.
Only the Spanish one is nice without terrible loud beeps.
