Disable transitions in iOS app?

Is there some way to disable the sliding/swipe transitions in the new iOS app? It looks neat at first, but it's making my stomachs churn after a while.

There's an update that will be going out in the next few days. We've improved the way we transition. Thanks for the feedback on this!

hi kristine, I just downloaded the new update and unfortunately, the fix of making the first screen disappear during the transition doesn't change much. the distraction/nausea comes from having the new screen come in from the right. is there a reason why you can't go back to the old transition, or simply allow us to disable the transitions? please help.

Hi! There is no way to do that :/ I hope it isn't that bad!

Hi Kristine, I'm having the same problem, the new transitions are really bothering me. Can you please allow us to remove them in a new update? Or just go back to the old transitions in a new update? Please, having the new screen/words fly in from the right side has really hindered my ability to interact with the app and learn.

Could you please consider adding one? Things like this don't usually bug me, but something about all the moving text is particularly bad.

I'll definitely communicate this feedback to the rest of the team!

Thanks! I was/am a little annoyed about this update, but I'm glad that you guys seem so responsive. (And sorry for being so picky about something I get for free--I just really liked v3)
