Typo/accent corrections in IOS app

In the IOs app, it now tells me that I have a typo or accent but shows me what I typed instead of what is should be like it used to. This started last week. It is not helping me learn. Maybe it is a new glitch with the recent updates. Please reset it, so that it shows me the correction of my mistake, so I can learn what I should have done. Thanks!

I'm having the same thing ever since the most recent update, so I'm guessing it's a glitch.

Yes, this seems to be a bug. At first I thought I was still right because typo and markings were exactly the same. Could you please move this to the troubleshooting forum (edit and select the forum)?

Great. Let's hope people will actually read and confirm this. It can't be just the three of us ;).

I've also been having the same problem. Good to know that it's not just me, and that it is on the list to be fixed.

I've been experiencing this too. Only found this discussion page by logging onto the website to try and report this bug. Glad it's being fixed, but why not yet still. (iPad 3 ios7)
