Android bugs


(Olaf Rabbachin) #1

Below is a list of the bugs that I have encountered in the Android App.

  1. Daily goal reached message appears way too early, too late or not at all, see this thread
  2. Updates/changes to course content are not propagated to app, see this thread
  3. Large courses cannot be downloaded (i.e. 5000 words courses)
  4. Difficult words sometimes need to be removed several times before they disappear from the list (VERY annoying!)
  5. The scroll position within lists (i.e. word lists in a course) is not maintained after showing an item and then returning to the list, see this thread
  6. Courses that have been completed show as incomplete; hitting the learn-button then triggers an error, see this thread
  7. when moving between courses, hitting i.e. the repeat-button may start a session for the wrong (i.e. the previously active) course, if the user has progressed in the active course and the app needs to scroll from lesson 1 to the current/next lesson (timing problem)
  8. (related to topic above:) when hitting the repeat-button too early, the session will actually start a general repetition using ALL words instead of the words currently queued for repetition; if that happens, correct answers will score 45 points (= indicator); what’s very irritating: the count of pending repetitions will not decrease in general sessions, instead you’ll have to do the repetitions once again for those in queue.
  9. "Learn with locals" seems to rarely appear; sometimes an error message appears when manually staring a session
  10. Images provided in an otherwise text-based course (i.e. as an additional column) don’t show in the app; they do show in the web-version. Example: “(une) voûte en berceau” in this course
  11. repetition session: the score sometimes gets hidden; this applies to the score for a single task as well as to the overall score
  12. repetition sessions: the ‘can’t listen right now’ button isn’t shown at times (speaker button at the top right of the window)
  13. Score tables: the column headers and controls are hidden; they (most of all times) only shown when scrolling to the top of the list (i…e #1)
  14. Previously, the button underneath a task initially, read Skip, this is no longer the case - the button now always reads Continue and appears to be disabled - which it is not. Very much worse is the fact that, if the user skips the task, the correct solution is not being shown (see this posting)
  15. With longer phrases (word order puzzles), the words may end up underneath the words that have already been added to the phrase, making it impossible to see the remaining words and difficult to touch on the tiny bit that is visible without removing previous words; see this posting

It would be nice to get a statement from you: @MemriseSupport, @MemriseMatty, @Joshua

Memrise, stop "improving" Android app. You're bad at it
I can not download the lesson for ios
Finished courses show up as "unfinished"
Changes to course not propagated to app
Reminder emails' contents is chaotic and incomplete
Remove my own course on the app
while learning stage there's no picture exist, Instead there's a link comes out
Opening consecutive review session redirects after a couple of seconds back to the list page

Thanks for the list. I confirm most of it.

I know all of these bugs, can even think of more. But these are the most annoying. Thanks for making this list.

I presume that you guys have seen the thread as you answered in other threads. Could you please comment on the list, @MemriseSupport, @MemriseMatty, @Joshua?

Have you mentioned:

When wanting to tap ‘next word’, it can be hidden by those chosen so far making it impossible to solve!

(Olaf Rabbachin) #6

I’m not sure I understand what you’re referring to. Can you elaborate please?

(Memrise Matty) #7

Many thanks - We have passed this list on to our QA and Android teams.

I mentioned this on another thread, this is an image of what @DW7 is talking about.

Anyone Else Having An Issue With Creating Courses?
(Olaf Rabbachin) #9

Cheers, I’ve added it to the original posting as #15. I’ve also added #14.

(Fish Slap) #10

No longer possible to create mems on the android app? I am trying to make a correction on a course error to warn other users.

(DW7) #11

Hi @FishSlap - thanks for the illustration.

is there a Forum or Contributor supporting the course you refer to?

I was referring to official MemRise courses but the same problem can occur in other courses.

Excellent list and I concur on all of them!!!
