Ratings and Reviews
Great concept horrid execution
The teaching on this app, I love. It's a great idea. I wish I'd went month to month at this point though rather than pay for two years. It is the buggiest app I've ever used. In fact, it's so buggy the uncommon word "hate" comes to mind. I went all the way thru module three recently and got to the last lesson. I get a pop-up that says, skipping ahead? You didn't finish all the lessons. I go back and look and sure enough, the Review lesson I'd done said I'd not done it. This particular one I knew I'd done...8 times! You see, for the Review lessons, you can't retake and fix one card, it makes you retake the entire lesson! I wanted a 100% so I retook it until I did. Guess what... It apparently lost all progress. I ended up taking it two more times, finally getting everything right. When I finished, it said I missed one anyways. What!? I have another Review that I know I'll never get right because despite voice set to easy and having taken a year in college of German from a native German, it says I cannot pronounce one word. I gave up. In some lessons I can use the wrong word entirely when I'm trying to guess the dialogue and get a 100% but in the Review, which you must fully retake if you miss something, it won't get the single word right. In short, if you are a perfectionist or have limited time to waste on bugs, this is not the app for you. There are better ones for free that won't make you cuss in front of children or want to throw your phone.

Sorry to hear you have been having issues with our app. Great news - we have a fix in place to solve the issue you had when you completed it and it was still showing as one not complete. This will be released soon!
On the other item of the app not remembering your progress at all during the review path, we’d love to get more info from you so we can troubleshoot this for you. Please contact us and we’d love to help resolve this issue. Open Rosetta Stone > tap the Menu > go to Settings > tap on Feedback, to send us a message.
Why is it different??
I got this because I have the actual PC version of the Japanese Rosetta Stone, and I thought I would be able to access it through the app. Instead, it’s acting like it's a completely different thing?? In the app I can see all the progress I’ve made from where I’ve done it on my computer, but I can’t continue anything and the only option is a huge green button that says “unlock full access” which asks if you want to buy a subscription when you hit it. I already bought the program (which was very expensive), so why in the world would I want to pay nearly as much as what I already purchased for the SAME THING I already purchased when I already have it?? This is just as bad as when Adobe switched from selling full real CD copies of their programs to being subscription-based. Very very disappointed that you can’t get free mobile access when you have already bought the darn thing; it feels like they’re punishing people who prefer buying complete versions instead of subscriptions. I could have sworn back when I bought my RS that it said there was a mobile option for people who bought the physical copy, but evidently this isn’t it. If they’re going to treat this like a totally separate thing you have to pay for, it seems like the progress from your physical copy shouldn’t even be there at all.

The app isn't bad. Their billing is horrible.
You can download the app for free, and even do a lesson. Then it asks you to sign up for a subscription. If you wait a day or so, you get an email with a special offer of $5.99/month. Turns out though, it's not $5.99 a month, it's $147, paid all at once, which gets you a subscription for 24 months. Yes, that comes out to $5.99 a month if you don't understand finance, but it's a lot different if you don't want to pony up that much all at once.
Worse, after the term is up, they'll automatically re-subscribe you at their full price, no discount.
I hate this underhanded method of taking money from anyone who's not paying attention, and a bunch of people are going to pay a LOT of money for something they don't want. It's close to thievery, and it makes Rosetta Stone nearly dishonest.
EDIT: After using this for a couple of weeks, I still think it's pretty good at teaching language. However, the speech module, where it listens to you and grades how well you say things, is completely useless. It doesn't understand you at all, no matter how clearly you say it, and no matter how low you set the bar. I had to turn off the Mic to be able to get through those chapters. The program complained that my Mic was bad, but it works just fine on audio notes and FaceTime, so it's not my Mic.
