It has its ups and downs. I like the writing exercises it helps me use the language, but it feels like it's laking content. I gave 1 star because it's so glitching, like It keeps deleting my progress and sometimes the ui completly changes to what it was when I had the app a year or so ago where there are lessons that are completly missing. Then it will randomly go back to the updated look. Also sometimes I complete a lesson and it doesnt even count it. Edit: Haven't seen issued listed 👍

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, just the opening animated quote bubbles. I close it and move on to another app that actually works.

pretty expensive for sub and some features, like reviewing words, don't workb it always gives me the same words to review and just brings up all saved words when clicking on weak, strong, etc. I even had trouble when I tried to sign up for a trial and then pay for a sub. Additionally, there are no options to turn off romanization and community features. I like the grammar lessons though and the lessons are fun and interactive, but there should be way more typing and pronunciation practice.
