Glitching in Spanish

This app is amazing and I really appreciate all the words and phrases that will help me on my mission. There is a problem I’ve been getting frustrated with. When I do the flash cards, I press the arrow that should take me to the next flash card but it all of a sudden glitches and goes back to the very first flash card. Either that or it just glitches and says there is an err. I’ve tried exiting in and out of the lesson and even tried deleting and redownload the app multiple times and it keeps having the same problem. If there are any tips or tricks to get out of this it would be much appreciated. Thank you!

Good resource but frustrating sometimes

I really like this app and it has been very helpful for learning Spanish before starting my mission. What is taught is very applicable to how I will be using the language and the spaced review is a great way to solidify my learning. However, the app itself is so frustrating because it rarely works smoothly for me. Opening the app takes a long time and it often tries to download all the content, but takes forever and doesn’t work so it tries it again every time. Sometimes I never get past the loading screen. Another bug I’ve run into is sometimes I search a word, and the search results aren’t correct, as the Spanish and English words don’t match each other.

Needs a fix for Portuguese.

There are two versions of Portuguese on this app: Portuguese and Portuguese(Brazil). I’ve tried both and the Portuguese(Brazil) works great, but when I do the spaced review for the regular Portuguese the words that are being said and the word that is being shown don’t match up so it’s very difficult to learn the pronunciations. If someone could fix that so I can continue to use this app to learn that would be awesome. I got called to serve in Portugal so I can’t use the Portuguese(Brazil) because they are slightly different in pronunciation and sounds.
