While generally i think this is a great app, it would definitely be more beneficial if each page was fitted to the users phone, as for the majority of slides, you need to scroll for just an additional líne or two. In a lot of instances, removing large unnecessary graphics would sort the problem. A flagging system for queries regarding questions (IE when the answer is marked as wrong but is correct) would also be very helpful. There are ads, but they are not frequent enough to be bothersome.

I'm delighted that you finally have an app, I've been using Alison for years and often found the Web interface a little challenging on the phone. It's easy to navigate and fairly intuitive. It would be nice to have a "next" tab in the full screen view, and perhaps the medals on the profile.... but that's just me picking threads.

Slow all the way around!! It doesn't matter if I use the app or the website! It's constantly lagging and The quality of the videos is hit or miss.. and most of the courses won't help in obtaining an actual career.. while there are a few courses on here that can help with up-skilling.. I wish there were more legitimate course options.. more certifications, etc..
