Now I see

I was confused and about to get bored of learning because I was using the mobile app .. Most exercises was just building the Sentence from some given words , sometimes I was just guessing the answer instead of Translating . Thank god I knew there is a web version .

That learning system where you choose from some given words, it gives you no real challenge.

When you click on a module in the web version and roll down to the bottom from the lessons, there usually is a deep explanation about what you're about to learn. The app misses it.

Yes this is also a thing , Plus here after each mistake it tells you what was wrong .. this is a big deal when it is about verbs .

I'm using the web version and it still asks me to choose from given missing words in a sentence. Also I get multiple choice answers but others don't seem to get that?

Choosing a missing word to complete a sentence is a good exercise BTW , this is not what we are all taking about , here you translate -for example- a Spanish sentence into English .. there in the mobile app translating means just forming or building the whole sentence with given words . so if you speak English well you could neglect the given Spanish sentence and just form an English sentence like puzzles , so you miss to learn so much about the language you learn and don't get to know the Synonyms of each word .

Oh I see, I didn't know that about the app. I'll stick with the web version then. Thanks :)

Also, the notes disappear after a while. you get no explanations of perfect present or past perfect verbs in Spanish for instance

Notes disappear after a while I agree , but you can just discuss the answer or just see the discussion to see what you've missed or just know more about the exercise .

Yes, the web version is more thorough. Plus you can click on discussions when you're not sure what is happening.

I also highly recommend using a supplemental audio course. We don't get enough listening and speaking practice here. If you're learning English, they probably have lots of free audio courses, but in some other languages listening and speaking courses are very limited.

You cannot expect users to type the entire correct sentences on their phones, it is killing any desire to use the app. So the more the touch-optimized activities, the better.
