An update should also be of at least equal functionality or an upgrade in the feature set. This isn't. Not fully featured, but has flashy user experience where links to features overlay or on top of each other. My suggestion that chinesepod continue to make legacy app available so that subscribers can benefit from legacy features. For example Old breakdown from written dialogue had "glossary" feature which allowed student to see how character (s) were used in other sentences in other lessons. (Word used in context allows for better understanding of word) further the sample sentences feature was also connected. If you drilled down on the word "jiang3" there were 25 sentences from easiest level to hardest level. And you could save the word into flash card. And breakdown each one of those sentences. Change to a flashy layout but omission of major features is not appreciated by this user of 4 years. I installed this on device without cpod and DO NOT want new app on device with legacy app . Please advise on settings to prohibit new app installation on existing devices. Please advise on ways to get old functionality described above. Using Nexus 7" tablet
啊！太好了！ I've used ChinesePod on and off since 2006 and decided as of a few months ago to start again and study every day. I've been learning traditional hanzi this time, so it's great that this app offers the option to display traditional. I can't believe how great this new ChinesePod app is. Sure there are some new-software imperfections and there's always room for improvement, but I'm really impressed. Pair this with a good dictionary, Skitter (which has ChinesePod integration) and some real life conversation practice and you'll be speaking Chinese before you know it.
All characters stuck in traditional mode. Unchecked traditional, but does not save setting.
Almost all functionality is only available when online. No way to download multiple classes in one go.
Love the app. After recent update, there are many more lessions which are super cool and helpful. Love you guys.
It works great for studying on the go and is even better now that I can find unstudied lessons.
