A bit dysfunctional. Scrolling is sticky, downloads don't always work, the app constantly interrupts itself to process payment(sort of tells you everything right there). There are plenty of free lessons and tests through different sites. Brilliant's main offer is that it's very polished material. The real wealth of explanation is in their wiki you can't access directly from the app. Real shame because that part's free online. Not much value in the app.

I really wish something like this was around when I was younger. I wanted to try brilliant out to see if it would help me spend less time on social media, and it has helped with just that. Instead of mindlessly scrolling through YouTube or Reddit I can zip through a lesson on here and actually learn something useful. My two complaints are lack of a dark mode, the white background can be hard on the eyes sometimes. And sometimes the app has a hard time registering input from the touch screen.

In terms of the layout/background visuals, it's extremely basic. This made me overlook it for quite a while, but it is actually a great program for what it is! I wouldn't use it as a way to go from nothing to job-level competent on its own, but I think it's great to get your feet wet in areas you aren't familiar with before you take the plunge with something more dedicated, or as a way to practice things you already know, as most everything is a use it or lose it situation.

What's new

Sometimes even small updates can make a big difference. Like two in this release:

- Before, clicking the “Redo Lesson” button wouldn’t always reset the lesson. Now it should.
- Also, when you clicked “Show Explanation” in a Daily Challenge, you might get sent to the home screen. Now you see the explanation as expected.
