What's New in Version 2.0.0
With this release, we are proud to present a brand new version of the Memrise app.
We hope you enjoy learning with it as much as we enjoyed creating it!
About the new update
As an active user of this great app I have gained some perspective regarding the whole interface. The initiative of changing it is good. But keep the good things and remove the bad ones, don't change everything (unless you think the app is completely bad which it was not). Some problems have been fixed and I am thankful for that. But others remained (unfortunately). For example the audio for a word plays way too late. The weird sounds are useless when you are trying to learn a language. The keyboard still looks like a keyboard from a kids game (not very sober, too gadget-like and childish). When (before) watering a level (now it's called reviewing), don't show us the world ranking for that level (BETWEEN EVERY LEVEL) it's not a competition, we are just trying to learn a language, everyone has their own rhythm. You guys should focus more on how to make the interface sharp, fast and focused only on the words (cut the animations and the weird noises off).
Overall it is still a great app (the best to learn Chinese on your mobile phone in my opinion). But it can become even better for the reasons listed above. Make it look professional (I know it won't look appealing to children but frankly, I think the majority of your users are adults).
A marked improvement
Version 2.0 of Memrise' mobile app has addressed all the issues I had with the previous iteration. Issues such as sluggishness in both loading and operation, difficulty syncing with the main website, and lack of browsing functionally made it so that the only platform on which I used Memrise was my laptop's web browser. This update has addressed all these issues, and has catapulted Memrise above all my other language learning apps in terms of usage (usurping even Duolingo's mobile app).
Some issues still remain, although they are much less detrimental than the previously mentioned set. One issue is that the app still does not sync fully with the website; I have words that I have already harvested on the app (ready to review) listed as in progress on the site (the green progress bar is not full). This does not occur in the reverse situation, so it is only a minor inconvenience. The other issue is more of a usability note: there are only 5 mems from which to select when first encountering a term, and I would like to be able to choose from the complete list of user-submitted mems as opposed to a digest.
Great new app
I'm happy to see the iOS team at Memrise is still alive! :)
This update breathes some fresh air into the stale old app. The problems downloading image-based cards is gone, you can browse new courses straight from the app (though the web interface is still much more useful), and notes pop up during reviews--which finally makes the app a little more useful for learning multifaceted things like written Chinese and Japanese.
The one feature from the website that I'm surprised didn't make it to the new app is the ability to review cards from all courses in a language that I'm subscribed to. This keeps it interesting for me. At the very least, it would be great if my courses were grouped by subject like on the web page. I have a lot of courses and it starts looking pretty disorganized after a while.
A big bug that I noticed is that it doesn't seem to be syncing properly. If I do a session on my iPad and then switch to my iPhone, I have to do the same work all over again. I can't even force it to sync like I was able to do on the previous version.
Bugs aside, the new interface is pretty spiffy. Keep up the good work guys!
