Ratings and Reviews
Please Fix Bugs in Most Recent Update
I have never left a review for an app before now. First, thank you for all of the aid your organization gives to those of us who suffer from learning disabilities. Your app truly helps. That being said, the most recent update has made the app very difficult to use. Every time I download a book that should take mere MBs, the app storage increases by 15 to 20 GB. If I delete the book, the storage is still filled up so I end up having to delete the entire app and start over to download a new book. This was never an issue until the most recent update. Also, the app is glitching. It freezes or has a delayed response when I interact with the user interface. Another issue that I am now experiencing is that the audio playback stops every few minutes, and sometimes the app will even log me out mid-reading. I now have to re-log in on average three times for every hour of listening. Please fix the bugs! The app worked perfectly before. I will definitely change the rating to 5-star if the glitches are fixed!
Thank you for the wonderful service!
Thank you to everyone that has put together Learning Ally. Never apologize for anything (dyslexia/mass email) to anyone ungrateful for the thoughtful gesture. This is really helping me get through school. I only have 2 problems with it though.
1. Playback stops every 5 pages (about)
2. The readers sometimes pronounce character names differently and it’s distracting. I think if multiple people are going to read they should agree on how to pronounce everything. I’m less than 100 pages into a book I have to read for school and I’m distracted because I’ve had to listen to 4-5 different pronunciations of the same character’s name (this is an essential character too) and sometimes the reader(s) mispronounces other common words.

Learning ally doesn’t care if learning issues without documentation
At first I really loved Learning Ally. It was alittle expensive $124 for a year with no monthly options. I signed up as, I have alittle trouble reading. It helped me with my upcoming medical classes and I was so happy to of found it. Until I get an message saying they need to see documentation of my disability . Unfortunately years ago my ex husband beat me and hit my head against the floor a few times. Ever since then it’s alittle hard to read. This abuse happened was I was an adult so I have no proof of my learning disability. I reached out the learning ally, expecting some time of care over my situation and NOTHING! Just said they will refund me my money. I have 3more medical classes and this will be hard for me. Thank you Learning Ally for deciding who needs help and who doesn’t. Learning should be for everyone, thank you for stifling mine.
