Only okay

I wish this app had a few more capabilities that the website has such as changing teacher availability. Also, I do not like the countdown to the lessons. I know when the lesson is. The countdown is anxiety provoking.

Much less functional than the website

italki disabled access to their website from mobile devices and replaced it with this app. It is missing important functionality, particularly for teachers. I am no longer able to change my availability or make a withdrawal from my electronic wallet. I have to access the website via my laptop to do these things. The application also makes it appear that there are unread messages even after I have read all of the messages.

Annoying for teachers

Maybe students find this app useful but it’s now impossible for teachers who don’t have access to their computer to change their availability. You used to be able to do this on your phone by going to the website but italki now directs you exclusively to the app. I’m not always at home and it would be nice to be able to open up hours, or remove them, when I’m not sitting in front of my computer.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the feedback. I totally understand your problem. 'Change the availability' is under developing and will be released soon.
