Hope app fix is coming soon!

It is disappointing that the update to fix the broken application is taking so long. ALL HANDS ON DECK! I wish you could provide updates here. You have such a great product and service and I see people in the reviews saying they are canceling service. It would go a long way to let people know you are working on it and they can use Chrome Browser on Mac with Learning Ally extension for now or use iOS app.
I can’t find anything on the website about this issue. In fact it still says you can load the app from the Mac App store. It has been broken a long time. At least let people know before they spend their own time discovering it doesn’t work. People are paying for this functionality.
Please, please, I hope this is fixed before the school year starts!
Thank you and good luck with update. I look forward to updating my review once the app is fixed.


Learning Ally

I have the new MacBook Pro with the touch bar, and when I first installed the application it didn’t work, but I contacted customer services. After a couple of weeks, they had installed an update which now works perfectly on my Mac. I have a slow processing issue, and without Learning Ally I would have to go back and reread the pages and would have a hard time. Instead, when I use the audiobooks AND follow along in my book, the words are again spoken to me so that I understand the pages and don’t have to go back and reread. I love Learning Ally, and if you read a lot and like to follow along in your book while Learning Ally plays the audio version, this is definitely the way to go.

Hello, thank you for your feedback. We are so glad we are able to help!

Not Working with Mac Update

Update to the newest Mac Operating System

I updated my computer to the newest operating system. I am now finding that Learning Ally is not compatiable with it. Our school has one-to-one MacBooks so my daughter only has a Mac to listen to her books. When will it be compatible? Is there a timetable? I have contacted our IT people at school and requested for her computer to not be update until it is compatable. Thanks!
