This app/idea is insanely good and works very well. There is A LOT of content. The ability to import your own content (especially YouTube videos) is what sold this for me - I have been stuck at the lower intermediate level in my target language due to a lack of digestible native content at that level (everything is either too easy or too hard). The ability to generate captions and save phrases for flashcard practice makes this excellent for sentence mining and climbing out of A2/B1 limbo!

What could be a very nice tool for learning, but the app seems to make it all but required to purchase premium to use it. After you highlight (link) 20 words, it stops pronouncing any new word and gives a popup to purchase premium for more "links". I literally just installed to try it and I'm already unable to use it, so no, I'm not paying for it. Would probably rate higher if it had a better trial method. Guess I'll stick with Duolingo for now.

Sorry about that. We're aware the free trial is quite limited and we have plans to expand it. In the meantime, I'm happy to provide you with a longer trial period. Email me at to get set up.

Cool app. Partly really like it and partly super frustrating. I'm just learning my way around, but technical glitches really set me off. Main issue: when I go to listen, sometimes the text highlighting jumps to the end of the lesson. No other text responds. The audio works fine, but they are not connected or correlated. Can't click any part of the story. Other times it works great. Also, I wish I didn't have to use the web site for some things.
