Seems like a good app with a good experience. I feel like I'm learning. But podcast buttons work in reverse (forward goes to the previous episode, and back goes to the next), and at the end of an episode, the previous episode begins playing. I have now followed support's instructions. The issue persists. I emailed support again with screenshots of the steps I took and video of the bug.

I had to pay for two subscriptions because one subscription doesn't cover multiple languages. There's no knowledge test that I can find so I have to start from scratch which is annoying. Navigating through the app is anti-intuitive. Switching languages is difficult. There's no option for dialects when you learn French (like Quebec). There's also no "I can't speak right now" or "I can't listen right now" buttons which makes it more inconvenient.

I'm learning a lot from the app on my phone. The voice recognition needs major improvements though. It just doesn't recognize what I'm saying. I have to skip the pronunciation more than not and it's discouraging that such an important part of the app underperforms. Note to the devs: I'm on Android with a Bluetooth headset on. It's possible the headset is picking up my voice poorly.
