Ratings and Reviews
Excellent German learning app!
I don’t write reviews often at all, but I felt compelled to write one for this app. I’ve tried probably 6-8 German language learning apps and this is the best one for my learning style, by far. You simply select stories/articles that are written in various difficulties that align with international testing standards (A1, A2, B1, B2, etc.). If you don’t understand a word, click on it to see the definition and translation. Furthermore, save it for your flashcards to keep learning it in the future. A1 stories are easy enough for a kindergartner to understand but they’re written about more adult-ey topics (and are therefore more interesting than reading a children’s book in German). On the other hand, C1 stories are advanced and probably difficult for even many Germans to fully understand or comprehend. It’s an excellent app and deserves more recognition, for sure.

Actually Learn the Language
This app is the perfect complement to more course-based or grammar-oriented apps like Duolingo or Busuu. If the readings were all you got, it’d still be great. But the ability to click on any word in a story and get a definition (and even a conjugation paradigm for verbs!) is fantastic. You can also add any word to your training list for review later.
The ability to filter stories by comprehension level (A1 to C1) allows you to get just the right amount of comprehensible input so that you’re not overwhelmed by unfamiliar words.
I’d recommend Readle to anyone who has achieved A1 comprehension or higher in their target language.

No solution, no refund
I really enjoyed the application. It began to have issues a short while ago, late October. There was just a blank screen and no matter what I did, it changed nothing. When I was able to read the articles, they were only the free articles, although I paid $41 to be a premium content subscriber.
After many messages back and forth with the app designer, still no solution. I don’t believe they fully understand what it is that is wrong, due to the fact they are asking me to perform a number of actions that are not possible (“select this after you do this and you will see this icon. Select this icon and you should be able to read premium content”). I don’t see these icons and I have sent screenshots to allow for better understanding of what it is that I am seeing. Still, they instruct me to follow their instruction and watch a video demonstration on how to correct the problem.
Asked for a refund but no response.

Dear Boerbeol, Thank you for sharing your feedback and taking the time to get in touch with us here too. We are sorry that you did not have a positive experience with our support.
Our colleague has answered you in the email. Could you check with the latest App version (released this week) if you could access all content (especially from B1 and above levels)? We offer max. 10 free articles for beginner level. If you are able to access all articles plus higher level content, this means that you have full access to the premium content already. The blank screen was an incident in our server, we have fixed the issue as soon as we could. We are very sorry for your inconvenience.
If the problem is solved and you would like to give our App another chance, we'd really appreciate it if you could increase your rating. If not, we totally understand that too.
If you would like to get a refund, we kindly ask you to follow the instructions from Apple:
Thank you for your feedback again, this allows us to know where to improve to become better in the future. We wish you luck on your German learning journey!
Kind Regards, Chris
