Real world translation

In the last few weeks there were no real world translations but a lot of refresh skills levels to master and a good chance to practise. Since the last update for the iPhone it is mostly realworld translations. I do not see why translating documents about smartphone technology, on a language level I haven't reached yet, helps me in any way to learn italian better. I can totally understand that translating texts, even above your own skill level, helps you understand a language better but why is it just this one super boring text about smartphones? I used to love the app and practise every day, now I have to force myself to continue.
