Love the program, not the app

Needs some updates soon or I will have to find another learning source for use on the go. I try to listen through Bluetooth on the way to work in the mornings, but as soon as my phone goes off, or if I switch over to another screen—the app shuts down. When the app goes out, it takes whatever else I had open with it. Terribly inconvenient to keep refreshing the screen so the phone doesn’t go into power save mode & it drains the battery.

Subscription has expired notice

I paid for monthly subscription to the Spanish courses. In the middle of lesson 25 for Spanish level 2 I was given notice that my subscription has expired and I would have to choose another lesson.

I am in the middle of a lesson. I have just been billed for my subscription. I want access to my lessons or my MONEY BACK!

It’s the App

The method is fine. The app has some problems. When you change levels it erases the level you were on so you can’t go back to review easily. I use it when out and about in another country. I’m can’t just download what the lessons decides to erase with limited foreign phone data (or limited data back in the states). The app still doesn’t play in the locked screen so I can’t pause or reverse to listen to a phrase again. I have to open my locked phone, because I’m out and about, open the app and then figure what to do. I can’t control it from my headphones either. I’m still using the older version without all the Flashcards and “skills” so I can actually use an app that functions the way I need it. I spoke with customer service in September and they had a problem with the developer not including these kinds of things. Get a different developer - they don’t know what they are doing. And if it takes 3 months and they still haven’t fixed it then they don’t know what they are doing. Meanwhile your reputation in this market is suffering.
