Due to terrible performance issues (Android app sucked, the downtime and extremely slow servers) I experienced in February, I quit using the service. I haven’t been able to find anything better or at least similar to LingQ. I really miss reading and listening with it.
In short, the idea and system behind LingQ is great, I love it and need it in my life but the technical details sucked awfully in the past.
Here are my questions to the community:
- Has the Android app improved in the last 3 months? I experienced random scrolling to top, laggy word lookup and some crashes on 3 different devices from 3 different manufacturers.
- Has there been any significant (1h+ downtime) lately?
- Is the server performance that I’m experiencing right now (ping of an average of over 10 000 ms) a temporary issue? I wouldn’t be able to use the site comfortably if it happens all the time. I live in Warsaw, which is the capital city of Poland, and there are no issues with other US-based servers. My internet connection speed is over 50 mbps (in theory and most of the time in practice as well).
Thanks in advance for your answers. Take care
