Really great overall! It's not a pay to win app! There is just a few things I'd like to suggest. 1 MAKE MUSIC AND MATH AVILABLE TO OTHER DEVICES THAN APPLE. I use Android, and I really want to do the music course, so it's a huge let down for me and many others. 2 I'm sure it would be convinent to pause 2X EXP potions, because I do a lesson before work, and get a boost, but then I can't use it because I'm busy. Otherwise it's a great app overall.

The app is excellent and perfectly usable in its free version without too many ads. It does a decent job of teaching other languages, although there are times where I wish there was further explanation as to why something is the way it is instead of just moving on. There's actually very little in the way of explaining anything at all. It mostly just uses repetition which is a solid method for learning but i wish it did more explaining. Overall though it's a lot of fun and still quite effective.

Love it, this is probably one of the best apps in the store. Wish I could give it more stars. The new podcast is oh so saucy. Great content and the listening part of learning Spanish was missing before this. I've been using this app for some time now but it is getting worse. They hide the true amount of XP your earning each day and the XP listed on exercises aren't actually reflective of what the system is giving you. If I aim for 100xp points per day there is no way for me to know accurately.
