I have something I just need to get off my chest for anyone who will listen. Maybe someone from Lingq, maybe users of Lingq.
I have used Lingq for about 4 years now off and on. I’ve been a paid member, and I always was happy to pay the small fee associated with this program.
There is no doubt that Lingq has helped me learn a lot! I use every tool I can on this website, and I don’t think I’d be nearly as fluent as I am today without it. The fact that this website is so simple in it’s approach, but it combines so many time consuming tools into one page that’s not time consuming at all has helped me. For example, making a new set of flash cards every day would be a pain in the … But, the fact that every morning I wake up with a new set has really helped me out.
Also, the fact that as learners, we’re not told what to study, how to study, or when to study. Instead we are given a platform of many tools that help us study, has made this website so incredibly powerful.
That said, as grateful as I am, there are a lot of problems with Lingq that make it so unusable, and make me hate paying the 10 bucks every month.
So. Many. Bugs.
I know Lingq has a development team that is constantly working on fixing bugs, but there are so many of them. The fact that the chrome add on doesn’t let me important articles, the fact that if I copy and paste articles, the formatting comes out incorrect so I have to edit and correct, the fact that I can’t use the flash cards on my phone anymore because my words aren’t showing up.
I get that you guys want to have a really cool website and app with all these features that are all shiny and make people say wow. But for a second, can we please backup, just be simple, and make things work?
This is not me trying to bash any person, or persons. This is a frustrated customer who would just like a completely working system.
Above all, I just want my flash cards back on my app. (No, I don’t have android. Yes, I have the latest version of the app. I posted a few days ago about my issue, but still waiting to hear a resolution).
Anyways, I finally had to deactivate my account because I was paying $10 bucks a month for features I couldn’t even use.
I hope soon I can comeback to this website, and use it once again without all the bugs.
