Can't or Not able to Sign Up
the button for the sign up option isn't working and won't let me click it. i read this was an issue for many others as well. i will rate it right now bc i know for a fact this is a great learning app. it was recommended to me through a friend of mine and she's had it for awhile but it's just not working for me.
This is such a great app. The only issue is the sound suddenly stoped working. I redownloaded it thinking that might fix it, but I hope if it is a bug that is affecting the sound and that the app makers work to fix it soon. This is a very important development in the preservation of the language. I was finally learning the language of my family in a systematic way and I know others will also, especially the youth, given apps like this, and so preserve this beautiful ancient oral culture for more generations.
No sound 😱
I messaged and received a response almost within 30 mins. Was asked to turn on and off my sound nothing has worked sorry sound is still broke. I’m on iPad decided to use my headphones still not working..
Update: I downloaded to my phone, with headset Apple 13, and it works with headphones.
