  5. Leaving app restarts my lesson

Leaving app restarts my lesson

This has happened 3 or 4 times now: I leave the app partway through a lesson (dative case 2/3) while I'm writing a comment on a question, and when I reopen it, it's quit the lesson and I have to restart. This happens whenever I'm in the comments section for a question, and then switch to another app. So annoying.

Hi @sehrdoof, thanks for reporting this! we're going to look into it.

So our devs looked into it and this seems to be a problem on Google's end. See: https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=26658

Until they can fix this, we'd suggest just restarting your device and opening the app from your app list and not from the Play Store.

Thanks. To be clear, this happens (in my experience) when I leave the app while writing a comment.

I had the same problem too...I just stopped using the app and use the website.

Because you can't stop a lesson in the middle, if you start it you have to finish it.

I don't think so- switching apps works fine unless I'm writing a comment when I do
