    A great way to mine internet gold without all the distractions.
  • Credit card charged before trial period ended

    My credit card was charged before my one week free trial ended. I had until 1/9/18 to cancel so that I would not be charged. At 11:35 pm on 1/8/18 I cancelled my subscription only to find that my credit card had been charged at 10:55 pm that same evening. Not sure how to go about canceling and getting my money back.
  • Haven’t used the app

    Didn’t know I would have to agree to pay for the app for a year just to try it for free. Get a 7 day trial and then you will be billed automatically which preys on people’s forgetfulness. Should be a different category for apps with a pay plan like this. Gave it two instead of one star because I couldn’t actually rate the app itself but this misleading tactic deserves a low rating in itself. Edit moved it to 3 because I was able to try the app in a very limited fashion a couple puzzles and was kind of enjoyable but gave a good idea of what the app was.

  • You Need This

    I am rubbish at teaching myself anything. Even YouTube videos are confusing. This app is super effective. The teachings are transparent and manage to answer all of your questions at once. One lesson incorporates all the details into short, concise sentences. I never have to double back or pause. Your processing priceless info. in half the time. I have been trying to learn Mandarin Chinese for a year, have tried (and paid for) at least four different subscriptions, and finally got through some hang-ups after using the lessons on this app. Highly recommend.
  • Waste of my time...

    They make you go through a big long survey asking what you'd like to learn about and then tell you it costs $30/month but they'll give you a free 7 day trial. Waste of my time answering all those questions... Should tell people up front that it costs so they can decide beforehand...
  • Don’t download

    I remember playing with this app for a little and I just didn’t get into it, but they keep charging me a monthly renewal fee. I want to cancel but can’t find anywhere to do that. I don’t remembering even giving permission for them to charge me.
  • Hard To Say

    My rating of 1 star may be unfair but I cannot say if I like the app or not. I started with a “free introductory” version. It seems you can’t even try the app without providing them with your (a) email address. I may love the app, wish I had started sooner but I am resistant to giving out my email just to try an app. Let me have one day, one “session” then require me “sign in/up” if I want to continue. Make this change and I’ll give it a try.
