The most fun of all the language learning apps

And for me making it fun and keeping me interested is at least half the battle when it comes to learning languages (my school experience of language learning was that it was like some exquisite torture). So far after a good amount of time spent I am definitely improving, think the sequencing of material is broadly appropriate for day to day use and is “natural” as opposed to being academic, I like the various different ways the software teases me into trying to beat myself and win little awards (I learn best with lots of encouragement and less time spent feeling a failure) and the other elements of “gamification”. I think the inclusion of a camera based real time “what is the word for this thing” tool is cool and though I haven’t used it in earnest it’s enough for me to feel proud of the app. And whoever thought to include the phrase “you are a genius” was a real genius. I couldn’t help but laugh out loud and beam when it taught me that - caught me completely off guard and I felt like I had a new friend helping me learn.

No longer worth it

It was useful for the years i used it, but now its time to delete. As always the cause is developers greed. Previous update removed all the images I set for reminders on the vocabulary. Around 4000 images lost, around 2 years of work lost. On this newest update, they have added something everyone was waiting for (everyone as in all developers not the users): FULL SCREEN MAX VOLUME UNSKIPPABLE VIDEO ADS. Its time to delete the app, accept the loss of my 2 years of work and move on. I sincerely hope developers like this get the ax on the next tech job cut. I’ll try Anki instead, but if that app gets famous their developers will get greedy and the same will happen so I think ill just go back to paper cut memory cards. Greedy developers dont deserve your money, and you downloading the app watching their adds gives them money. Stop giving them money. Money is the only language the greedy understand. Update to reply the greedy developers automatic and irrelevant response: i dont care which free services you offer my review is not about the free services you offer my review is about your greed, the loss of 2 years of work in your app, and the latest inclusion of FULL SCREEN MAX VOLUME UNSKIPPABLE VIDEO ADS which distract from learning and render all the free services you offer UNUSABLE. Read the reviews properly before pasting your automatic response on them. And no im not creating any courses anymore so in a couple of years you just delete them. You are greedy.
