Hint 'press enter to continue' slows down timed practice

When I am doing timed practice on my ipad and I touch on 'continue' the hint 'press enter to continue' pops up. This is not possible on the iPad so I therefore have to touch on 'continue' again in order to move on. This acts to slow down my progress and as a result the timer runs out.

Thanks for letting us know. We'll fix this soon!


This should now be fixed.


Why is it required to press enter to continue at all in timed practice. Once the answer is given, we should just move on to the next question. Perhaps at best show the translation, then move on.


Thanks, that was a quick fix!
