Great language learning tool but..

It's a very helpful French learning app. However, the app itself is flawed. I have downloaded all French lessons. But after the app is upgraded, I have to redownload all the lessons which is very frustrating! Please let me know if there is a solution to this apart from redownload everything. Thanks!

Downloading Issue!!

I ended up buying double lessons in Italian after the app company claimed they had resolved the downloading issue. I spent over £41 on three lessons and only got refunded £27.
The lessons will not download properly. It comes up with “Network Error”
I wanted to learn Italian before going on a ski holiday last week. I’ve had this problem for a few months. If you’re lucky it will download when in WiFi but then delete from your phone when not in WiFi. It’s rubbish. I drive two hours to work and back everyday, I was looking forward to learning Italian in the car.
It’s such a shame as the French lessons downloaded well a year or so ago. I bought all nine lessons in French. On their website it’s says to restart the app. I did this but then it charged me for the lessons again. I’m dreading re-downloading the French lessons!
Even Apple have told me not to purchase or download anything from this app until they have PROPERLY resolved the issue. If they don’t soon I’ll be requesting money back from the app!!

Problem with Downloading

Why can’t you sort this issue of downloading. I’ve bought the full programme to listen to it when out and about only to find that it says ‘downloading paused or in a queue ‘ which then means you can’t listen to programme until you download it again when you have WiFi . I’ve done what you said about ‘resuming purchases but it doesn’t last long. After a few days it goes back to ‘downloading paused’ . It’s so frustrating. Since so many people are experiencing the same issue why not get it sorted. Can’t be that hard can it!
