Looking forward to try IOS app.




The app looks great Jason! My android tab had already prompted me to upgrade it, so I had already seen the new look. Here's another suggestion to put at the bottom of the wishlist for your surely overworked app developers: How about the possibility to download lessons to the app, so that when you're offline (e.g. in an airplane, or in the countryside) you can still study!


<p>Hi Leo - Yes, that is on the wishlist for Stage 2 of the app build!<br></p>


Great news. Will indeed review it.


hello i like that


The new app works really well, great news about stage 2 wishlist. Keep up the treemendous work that you do. Thanks


Love it, love it. Great work, Jason. I really appreciate that you guys keep trying to improve Rocket Spanish which, of course, is already the best. I reviewed it today.


My ipad updated Rocket French app. Not sure if this was the final update, but did enjoy using the app.


<p>Hi Jim - Yes, the iOS app has been updated! A new forum post will come out about that later on today.<br></p>



Is it suitable for Rocket Chinese also?


<p>Hi Peter - Yes, Rocket Chinese also has the updated Android and iOS apps.</p>


Loving Rocket Languages. Couple of update queries. Updated app won't turn into landscape which would be really helpful, old one did. Also can't find the settings for hard medium easy now either. I am thinking it must have changed with update as suddenly dislikes my pronunciation all the time. Thanks Karen


Adding "my tools" features to the app would be a BIG plus! Especially the "my vocab" feature or at least a favorites system... Currently there is no way to mark phrases/words which need further attention for a better retention rate. This feature (star symbol on phrases) even disappears on the mobile version of the website! This also makes it pointless to choose the website over the app on a mobile environment. I also second the download and dropdown list features. Otherwise, excellent work! I appreciate your dedication to improvements. You've created a great learning tool and I'm learning a lot! Thanks.
