I just downloaded the app and paid for a 3 month subscription. I do like the way it teaches and all the extras that is offers, however unless a few things are fixed, I won't be renewing my subscription. First, the microphone feature does not work. I have adjusted settings time and time again, so I'm sure it is not me. Second, a lot of the times I cannot get the keyboard to come up when I'm in an excersise that requires typing. I have to exit the lesson and go back. Multiple times.

Just started the app and found out I have to pay a subscription to 'unlock all the courses' Which is a huge turn off knowing that there are completely free avenues to learning another language and happen to be more helpful/useful than paying to teach yourself something. It isn't so important to me to lose my money to something I know I can find for free. Very telling most the reviews are overshadowed by really pretty ones. Scary to think what they'd do behind your back.

Babbel was a great app to learn Spanish at first, until I got to the speaking exercises. It's hard for me to pronounce certain words and they don't let you pass without perfect pronunciation. I've been using it for 3 weeks and can't get passed the speaking exercises which are holding me back even though I can pass the reading and writing exercises. I started using Duolingo and have had no issues on their speaking exercises.
