great content, not very usable app

I love these lessons and they’ve really helped me learn. however, the app is really glitchy. in my experience, if you pause an audio lesson (my most used resource), you can’t play it again. lots of bugs like that

Apparently reprogrammed for different screen sizes...

But perhaps some device was forgotten. If you have an iPad mini, which I travel with, the new version, the app does not work as intended. When you first started everything is fine. Then if you go to any of the lesson right after the lesson there is nothing. A blank screen, actually a black screen. No amount of talking or moving will help. The only thing you can do it completely remove the app from your lineup then when you restart it it appears as though you have just restarted it from nothing. Then you play the next lesson and the same thing happen. So there is no going from one lesson to another with ease, You have to completely dismiss the program to get anywhere near another lesson without a black screen appearing. I love Chinese pod but I listen to it when I travel which is often. This makes me put it down for long periods of time. Perhaps your technical people can fix this problem. And of course I would change my review.

Best program with free and subscription lessons.

Offers interesting video audio tools to learn at all levels. Does not offer any feedback on your pronunciation just videos illustrating the correct pronunciation. My experience is that programs that offer such features don’t work well anyway.
