So pleased with this app

I've subscribed to "Word Of The Day" emails. I've looked up words I don't know. None of that helps me retain. This app however has changed my life (and my vocabulary.) The simple action of allowing me to see the words the next day, and then the next, until I remember it, is the trick. And when I remember it, it shows it to me again in 3 days, 7 days, 30 days, etc., so I never forget it. Plus with the paid version, between those intervals, I can play simple games which keep the words at the forefront of my mind. And I keep bringing in new words to learn entirely at my own pace. Simple and brilliant and life changing. I look forward every day to incorporating my new words into every day conversation.

Notifications improve

This is the best app for learning words that I’ve seen, and it can be better if you improve the push notifications system. For example, when I say to the app that reminds me this word tomorrow, I expect that tomorrow I get a notification for that word, or even better if that notification reminds me of all the words that I should review.

Love the knowledge map and multimedia learning design

It’s so close to being exactly what I dreamed a language app would provide! The best Please fix the bugs tho. It’s so inconvenient when a page doesn’t load whereby I need to repeatedly force restart the app and I already paid for a full year membership! The word search function can use some improvements. I really don’t care about the games and movies/TV shows under explore if they slow down the app. The most attractive functions are the knowledge map and lots of multimedia examples. Please separate the British spelling to the American ones, make sure the sorting by easy to difficult words works properly, and make the app more robust.
