Great App. Overall very easy to use and really makes the best of repetition to make me more comfortable with the words and phrases. My only change so far would be to have it not jump automatically to the next lesson because usually I'm only doing one a day. I would prefer if it automatically jumped to the reading lesson, which I always do right after the audio lesson.

Ian, thanks for your feedback. We are always looking to improve the app experience and will take your advice into consideration as we update. You can disable the autoplay function by navigating to Settings>General>Autoplay in the Pimsleur app. Hope that helps!

The program (at least English>French) is FANTASTIC for learning a spoken language. But the app itself is kinda bad. It's clunky, their website is disordered, I once upgraded my subscription and they didn't cancel my original one. Audio controls don't work so I can't pause the lesson with buttons on my headphones. This entire implemention is a mess. And the lack of interactive features means it's just a glorified podcast app. Simon and Schuster are sitting on a goldmine and they're squandering it

Oren, thank you for your review. I'm glad you like the lessons but see that you have not been satisfied with the app. We make continuous updates to app performance. As for features, have you tried the Pimsleur Premium? That has many interactive features in addition to the audio lessons to help your learning.

So far it's been pretty great experience. I'm learning more than I've ever learned through an app before. Sometimes it can feel a bit overwhelming but as long as you're consistent progress is made quickly! **Something that could be better** The vocabulary you learn during each lesson isn't always included in the flashcards under the lesson. A little frustrating when trying to review what you learned but the words aren't there. But you're bound to use them in a later lesson, so there's that
