No human transcription for the stories it's all robot voice. | On the good side you can click on any word and get its definition. And the stories are cool. | This is a personal preference but the narrator of the news speaks British (this should be mentioned in the app description)- I'm looking for American content exclusively to avoid unecessary confusion as a learner.

It's a great app developed thinking in those users that are very clear on their CEFR stage of Language Learning. The content of the readings is completely enjoyable and amusing. Getting more information on unknown words is a great tool without needing to look up anywhere else. The way they present the information in a graphic novel way, and at the same time engaging using an text messages interface makes this app engaging for everyone. I would use it every time I want to find out what's going on with the stories told in the app. You should definitely give it a try!
