Android App: You strengthend...

Sadly this forum is everything but searchable, so I appologize up front if this has been a topic before.

I wish the android app would also show if I strenghtend a topic. I am regoldening my german-french tree and I find it highly motivating, that I strengthen something pretty much evertime I train (yes, there is hardly anything golden at the moment). But when I use the app, I have to guess from the tree what happened, as it doesn't show it. Could we please have this feature? You are actively working on the app, I can tell from the last update (which I personally didn't like, but that is beside the point).

Hi jayeidge below the skills icon you may find a bar that shows if you have strengthened it or not. To strenghten the skills use the global practice button in shape of a dumbbell.

Thanks for your reply. The problem is though, that you still need to know the level each skill had before, to notice a change. And if you just do general strengthening using the dumbell, it is hard to keep track. I can't imagine it to be to difficult to implement the message in the app. But I fear, that my wish will go unheard, just like so many others.

I see what you mean. We do hear you, loud and clear :-). Truth is, we cannot always implement the proposed ideas. I know this may cause some frustration and some may feel we do not listen. We do pay attention to suggestions; we carefully analyze them and if they bring a benefit to the learning experience, we test them before releasing them. So as you may see, it is not a simple automatic process. We wish we could bring to all of you every feature our amazing community has requested. On behalf of the team I want to thank you for the time you took in sharing your feedback with us and for being part of this free learning community!

Thanks for the answer. I think the reason, why I feel that we are not beeing heard is, that all the suggestions get lost in the Forum. Some get an answer like this, which I am really greatfull for, some don't. If we could just see what has been suggested we could just vote or comment on it and didn't have to clutter the Forum. Thanks again for your response.
