Errors in the new Matching excercises on iPhone App

The new iPhone App matching exercises in Spanish are full of errors but there is no way to report them. They are also so easy that even without errors they would be a waste of time. I am at Level 21, I need to listen and speak.

This is the WORST exercise ever. Silly busy work. Unrelated to the immediate topic at hand. And full of errors and alternate meanings that have not yet been taught.

I have stopped using the app entirely because of this exercise. Web thankfully doesn't have it.

Same doubtful meanings fo French, I can assure you.It llook like they are translating from a first Course by Duobot or something like that, and mixing two languages with a third or even fourth one.

I've noticed this in the Spanish as well, and assume it may happen in other languages but only know Spanish well enough to notice. Has there been any news of it being looked into and fixed?

I've noticed these errors also. It's not just the odd one but many. Both in Spanish and in German. I pretty much ignore these excercises and hate them anyway. Fortunately for Spanish I can spot the errors but i feel sorry for beginners learning the wrong word meanings. No way to report them either.
