Whenever I do a "strengthen lesson" on the iPad mini app, it doesn't strengthen the skill.

Try doing an individual lesson in the skill group instead of "strengthen skills." That usually fixes the problem.

The problem is that I DO do individual lessons, but it doesn't strengthen the skills anyway. It feels like a bug because it doesn't strengthen on the app, but it still works on the chromebook that I use. It's kind of annoying because when I'm on the treadmill, I can't strengthen my lessons because the strengthen doesn't work on the one device that fits on the treadmill, which is my ipad.

That is strange. I use the iPad app all the time and I've only noticed the issue with "strengthen skills." Sorry this didn't help you.

Sorry, I misunderstood your comment, and it turns out that it does work when I just strengthen a single lesson. Thank you!

Understandable. I should have said "Strengthen," which is what is actually on the button. Anyway, I'm glad it worked for you.

Ya this just started happening to me tonight, I did the "Demonstratives-2" skill 6 times 20 out of 20 timed and un-timed and it is still stuck at 4/5 when normally it just takes one round(or less) to bump it back up to 5/5. Other ones are strengthening fine. (These were on a desktop, then tried once from mobile and it worked... maybe because my desktop has mic disabled and the app doesn't?)
