I've been using since the beta long ago. There have been many solid improvements along the way (and some growing pains).

Pros:

Easy to learn a new language!

Cons:

None so far

I’m a guy learning Portuguese

I think using this in conjunction with Pimsleur is the best language self-study package you could give yourself

Pros:

It’s easy to use and effective

Cons:

None so far

The app demands payment upfront before you can look at anything even for the free trial and they have the audacity to go "We HAVE to do this. The app stores make us" when I've been on free trials that didn't demand I put my payment method in before i could look around. Use some features? Sure. But this is the kind of tactic that a shady adult website uses. Not someone who has an actual worth while product. Cannot stress enough how much of a scam this feels like. Even if they have a legit product I'm not gonna sign up right off the bat and have to jump through a dozen hoops to unsubscribe. Its bad enough they have my email now and I'll get spammed by them for signing up. I just wanted to see what languages they had available. Can't even do that. So shady and disrespectful to the consumer.

I'm a polyglot.
@james_ocean Your instincts were correct, James. I read the book and was infatuated and made the mistake of signing up with them. They've stolen $20 from me without providing a functioning app. Their customer service is rude and very slow. They have a no refund policy, no matter what. I recommended them to a friend and regret that. I'm going back to Anki and will never sign up for an app that takes money info ahead of time.

No.
@james_ocean COMPLETELY AGREE!!! I am so furious. They billed me for 2 full years before I caught on because the billing is so infrequent. It is not about the money at all, it is about the dishonesty, the lack of customer service support, and the sneaky scammy way they go about it. Just gross. I still can't figure out how to get my account canceled. Ridiculous. Good luck to you.
No.
This company is absolutely corrupt. They have set up a system that is virtually impossible to unsubscribe from and offer no remedy whatsoever for this problem. I have been billed for YEARS and they refuse to address my concerns. Gabriel Wyner you should be ASHAMED of your staff. NEVER sign up for this trial. NEVER NEVER NEVER because short of canceling your credit card, they will bill you forever (aptly named). I didn't even know I had this app, never used it, was deleted from my phone shortly after the trial ended, and still I get billed. I do not have a Facebook account with which to login and cancel my account, yet that is the only method they offer, even when I repeatedly requested they close my account. Absolute theft. That being said, if I were trying to learn a new language I would suggest the good old fashioned way- go to the country. We went to Mexico and learned far more than an app could have ever taught anyway. Netflix cartoons are also incredibly helpful and come in many languages. There are much better options than this one so I suggest you stay away!! Good luck!
