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.

I can finally speak to a native

With this app I found the courage to speak with many people in Italy speaking real Italian which would otherwise not be possible unless I lived there.
