Hi Chinesepod Team, I just downloaded the new app and trying it out.
Here are my specs:
IOS Version: 10.2
Logged into my Premium Account
Remark: Overall good feel, but some functionality is still lacking - could be because this is the beta-version.
I've run into a few issues, here's my feedback:
- No Audio: Big Issue. I have tried multiple ways to play lessons.
Discover -> lessons, dialogue, and vocabulary review. Often will not play. If it does, there is no audio.
Discover -> Vocabulary -> Will play, but no audio.
Bookmarked -> lessons, dialogue, and vocabulary review. Often will not play. If it does, there is no audio.
Downloaded -> lessons, dialogue, and vocabulary review. Will play, but no audio.
Just in case you are wondering... I did check my volume.
Search. When I search words like "rent" or "math", the All tab shows the lessons but repeats them over and over. This only happens on some words, for instance, it didn't work with "monopoly". Also, if I try to search from the "Search Results" page, the keyboard does not disappear, which is a little irritating.
Download Speed. Very Slow. I like to think my internet speed is not too poor for China, but I had to wait upwards a few minutes for the download to complete. At least it downloaded... Could be China internet speed... The progress bar and background downloading might help with this.
Download Content on Airplane Mode. The good news is that I could play the downloaded content with Airplane mode, or at least see that it was playing since I still didn't have any audio.
I'll keep using it and keep you posted on further suggestions for improvement.
