Discrepancies in number of units between website and app

I've just noticed that the (android) app and the website appear to have different numbers of units for each section. For example I'm currently doing Abstract Objects 2 - website says I've done 3/7 units but app says 4/8. Same goes for Verbs Infinitive 2 - website gives 7/9 complete but app says 8/10.

It looks as though once there are more than 6 or 7 units on the website, an extra unit appears on the mobile app. Is there any reason for this or is it a bug? Seems strange!

I noticed the same thing last night in "Verbs: Past". Different number of lessons, with different focus words listed in some of the descriptions.

On looking further into it, the app has 16 questions per unit, whereas the website does 20 per unit. I'm maybe guessing 16 questions at a time is slightly better suited to quick "pick up and play" style of apps as opposed to a website where people will have a longer attention span. Seems strange to split things this way though!

I've noticed this too. It seems to be more common with the grammar-heavy lessons.
