Was great. Suddenly super predatory. I have found the speed challenges to be an excellent way to get in a lot of repetition and memorization, and it has been a great motivator to learn and play consistently. The new Match Game speed challenge is ABHORRENT. It is impossible to play without dumping large quantities of in-game currency into it. And there is no option to play any other speed challenge mode.

I appreciate this app and have learned much. They have a lot of updates and the app runs smoothly. I only wish they had a bit more of a study curriculum for those that like the bookwork to make it stick more(outside the practice option you have to pay for). There's a good mix of listening, typing, and talking in lessons. But also a decent number of ads that play after you finish a lesson or two. Over the years, the ads have become more common.

Been using this to study Chinese for the last 36 days or so. I'm definitely seeing progress. However, there is some inconsistency in available lessons, activities, and the shop between this app and the website. most features aren't available on the website, but the website tasks will let practicing completed lessons count as lessons for tasks, while the app will require any lessons to be new, incomplete lessons. Also, I have a crazy task today that asks me to "complete a whole unit".
