Misleading billing and no reasonable free option. I tried to get the promised 7 day free trial, but it immediately tried to bill my card for a year. Luckily, my payment method in google is expired, so it didn't work. I would have subscribed after a trial period if I liked it. I tried to keep using the free version, but every 10-15 seconds, the screen goes to a "free trial" page, which you then have to skip before going forward. Impossible to use this way.

They do seem to have fixed previous bugs. This is a pretty good app through the A1 level, covers the basics well, but the difficulty escalates sharply early in A2 and there aren't enough practice lessons, drills, or explanations. I'm now completely lost in verb tenses and will probably quit at this point. I don't think you could become fluent using this app.

Lately it keeps telling me to upgrade to premium every few days and i already paid for a year, pretty annoying. Edit: i prefer this app now over Duo and Memrise as it takes the time to explain the language. Two years with other app and they never explained verbs. I'm studying now more than ever and decided to buy premium. Old review: Program is ok, i like that it gives literal translations, that really helps. Sadly the program doesn't load over half the time.
