I used this app for the free segments to try it out. It has descriptive notes about what what you will learn in each course along with sentences you can practice. I love the speaking segments in the courses that grade on how well you pronounce the word and the little notes on the culture. Great app!

There's a few things wrong here. The 1 lesson is good, but too little to decide if you want to pay. Either offer more free classes or offer the first month at a reduced price (or one week for free). Additionally scanning the flash sticks that I bought irl is not working. And even if it would, the app is too slow for that use case. Starting up is slow, switching to scan is slow and starting the camera is slow.

It's a good app if you have money to invest on it, if you do I think it's worth it. As for me I couldn't pass the 3 beginner's lesson because you have to pay to continue. unlike duolingo even if you haven't paid lessons are available and only some features will be restricted. So I will stick to Duo and Uninstall this, it's a shame to see it going
