Surprisingly great language learning app

I’ve struggled with finding the right kind of language learning app before in the past. I’ve tried everything from the big name apps to the more obscure ones. None of them could keep my attention for very long and I would end up forgetting about this. I saw this app as a promotion on the App Store and I figured I would give it a shot. So I downloaded it and sped through my first course. Then the second, then the third, and so on. I recently upgraded to premium for a month to try it and I am glad I did. I’ve learned Tagalog from this app in one week then I have in the past year of attempting to learn it. The questions are great and challenge you in the right way. It helps you remember words and phrases by intelligently ordering them and giving clues with the context of the question. If I had one gripe, it would be that the app runs a little slow on older devices. I mainly use my iPhone 12 Pro when studying and have 0 issues. But when I try to use my 2019 iPad or iPhone 5s that I keep as a backup, it can take some time before the screen changes to when you see stuff update. Kinda kills your flow if you want to keep up a pace. But this is a non issue for me since I mostly use my iPhone 12 Pro. Give this app a shot. It’s very well done

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your thoughtful and thorough review. We are thrilled to hear that you're enjoying the app.

We're constantly working on improving the responsiveness of the app and will be doing some tweaks in the coming weeks to improve the performance. It's not a surprise that a phone released in 2013 may struggle a bit with our fairly intensive app, but your iPad model from 2019 should work just fine. If you could be so kind and let us know which iPad you're using and specifically what issues you're experiencing, we'd be able to work on improving the performance for this device.

Surprisingly helpful!

I really like how there are categories for important subjects I need to learn. It’s genuinely superior to Duolingo just by that alone. I get to actually choose if I want to learn basic colors or if I want to go straight into verbs. And I don’t have to drill the same words like apple and dog like in duolingo.

It’s a bit buggy sometimes for me though like when I finish a session it’ll lag or freeze a bit. But nothing that doesn’t make it function.

But yea with duolingo I feel like I waste time and I genuinely see myself continuing to use this app for awhile. Atleast the beginning stages of my language learning

Developer Response ,

We are delighted to hear that you enjoy it!

Regarding the lag/freeze at the end of the study, based on your feedback, we had a conversation about it and figured out a potential solution. It should be updated not too far into the future.

Thank you very much for your feedback!

I have tried DuoLingo for months but I feel the progression with Hey Lingo is much faster. The app is quick and you can run through a lot really quick and repeating combined with quickness registers vocab better for me.

It also feel a little “low effort” to open the app and play a round a bit while some of the other apps felt like I had to prepare myself mentally more to launch and get learning. A language learning app should be sticky and fun and this exactly hits the spot for me :)
