Good but not flawless
First of all, there are plenty of sales so wait until you hit one because it's pretty exorbitant at full price. Secondly (based off of the Korean learning program alone) there are definite problems with how it automatically sizes the writing (sometimes you cannot read the writing it is too small). Thirdly (and maybe this is just because I have an older phone) the pictures are too small to see (in the phone app). There is a way to tap the pictures so they enlarge, but it is very finicky and doesn't always work. Fourthly, the vocal recognition works ok except for the very short syllables (ah, eh, etc). It has a hard time picking those up, but luckily it is also fairly forgiving.
However, the program itself is very good and I feel like I am learning a lot. I feel like I still have to practice outside of the program to keep up with the pace and be able to pull the words out of my head in regular conversation, but I'm only on the third unit so that may just come with time.
Love this ap - two hints for added learning and enjoyment
This is a very comfortable and natural way to learn a language. Outstanding. There are two really super features that it took me a while to discover.
Most lessons have an icon of a magnifying glass in the lower left corner. Tap that icon and you will pause the lesson for deeper study and review. The text appears along with each picture and the speaker buttons can be used to replay the spoken word or phrase associated with the picture.
The second super feature is that if you swipe the speaker button diagonally, the frame enlarges to fill the entire screen. The photos are so good that you almost feel that you are there.
I will let the other reviewers tell you why (and even when) to buy this application , but once you have it, remember these hints. If you're like me and need to repeat things a few times to really "get it", then you will really love those two hints.
I've been using this app for two months, to learn French, and it's working. I don't think it's particularly efficient of time, but the repetition is very helpful and it is expanding both my vocabulary and my understanding of how the language goes together. I've had a little bit of systems trouble, mostly with their administration which has failed to renew my subscription automatically. Sometimes it's hard to guess the meaning from the pictures and I find it necessary to consult a dictionary.
Update: the app is sometimes unstable, and has to be deleted and reloaded, a nuisance.
Update, 6 months later: I did well in France, but want to start back a bit in the app to review and then learn more. I can't find a way to reset the history to a certain point. Also, it still crashes occasionally.
