It's a good app. I enjoy using it, when it works. I am on day 401 of my Spanish streak, and I don't want to lose it. But, when I get to translating the sentences by clicking on the word boxes, half of the time it doesn't work. I have to either close the app and redo the lesson or hit the check button and lose a heart. It is extremely annoying and I hope this bug gets fixed.

My only gripe is that it breaks the emersion a little bit and you can't look at wrong answers. Otherwise, perfect. Edit: the new heart system really negatively impacts how much progress you can make if you occasionally make small errors. Some days you can spend half an hour banging things our or 4 minutes not being able to make an ounce of progress. And the ads at the end have become quite intrusive and long. The app I feel used to be better. They've recently taken a turn for the worse.

For what they charge for the paid version, some things are so annoying. Like the volume difference. 1 sentence super low and the next super loud. I'm on day 35 and I think they've replayed the same story at least 5 times. Some vocabulary updates would be great. I'm going through the lessons with Mexican friends, who are saying how outdated some sentences are. Overall I wish I had not upgraded to paid subscription.
