I love chinese pod, but app needs update!

When are they going to fix this app to make it functional? I love listening to the episodes, but the app is terrible. The flash cards don’t work-the app should help me store words so I can use them as flash cards later. I pay for the full subscription, too.

Also the categories aren’t accurate-why do Newbie podcasts always start my Intermediate list of pod listenings?

It’s maddening how bad the app is and yet how valuable the content is!

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 things in my life

I love the app, and I’m not a parent, I’m a child. This app has replaced Chinese school because the content is great! I’ve been studying hard for a year now and Can converse in some basic mandarin conversations. The style of learning is different than most but it works the best for me. As for the app, it has a couple bugs here and there but who cares? They’ll probably fix it soon. Lastly, the app rating is so low because it used to have so many lags and bugs but they are mostly gone now. Thank you chinesepod for teaching me Chinese in such a relaxing and easy way!
