How can I turn off "Claim Rewards"?

This "claim rewards" doesn't do anything but show me a graphic of a treasure chest, which I don't care about. It freezes half the time and I don't know how to make it just go away so that I can go to the next thing.

When the chests pop up for me, I have to force close the app and reopen. Clicking on the chests does nothing, and I can't select any lessons from the screen behind.

I completely agree! Please provide an option for the user to switch off rewards and the other annoying messages about how many people are learning Irish, etc. Some people may find these motivational, but I just find them a nuisance!

I would also like to turn off the chests. It just kills my battery even more.

If you select "claim reward" it then shows you three treasure boxeds and you select one of them and get a reward of x gems. The actual number awarded seems to vary from 3 random numbers (I am guessing).

If you don't want the gems just ignore the claim reward link and the use the back to homepage link. Your XP should have been recorded but not the gems.

I understand how it works. The problem is that I want the option to remove it entirely and so avoid wasting my time with those 2 extra clicks. So this is really more of a feature request than a help request.

Well, it is currently under test so there is no way you can remove it but you could hope that it does not pass the test.
