Broken setting "Number of words per review session" (classic and speed)

Hi everyone,

For the past few weeks I experienced this bug on the Android app: whatever number I put in the “Number of words per review session” setting (for both classic and speed reviews), my choice is displayed and remembered but doesn’t apply when I launch a review session. Instead, review session always end after 6 words (a number not even available in the drop-down list).

I have tried reinstalling the app (with phone restart) several times but this behavior comes back every time. More precisely, the first review session will behave as expected, i.e. have a number of words equal to the chosen setting (either a custom value or the default 10-word value), but all the following ones are again capped to 6 words. And just to be clear: when going to the settings, my choice of number of words is correctly displayed (the number 6 does not appear anywhere). Changing the setting has no effect.

This bug is independent from the course I am trying to review (currently taking Japanese 1 and 2).

Thanks in advance for your help!

Some info:

  • Phone: OnePlus 5T (A5010)
  • OS: Android 10 (OxygenOS 10.0.1)
  • Memrise app version: 2021.4.5.0 (in French)

Steps to reproduce the problem:

  1. Install app and log in
  2. (Optional) Go to settings and change “Number of words per review session” (classic or speed)
  3. Launch any review session: the app behaves as expected
  4. Launch a second review session: the review session ends after 6 words (the progress bar moves accordingly to the 6-word review)
  5. Any new review session ends after 6 words

@clasp75 - this sounds familiar!

It does, thank you!

The latest update (2021.4.19.1) fixed the bug. The app works like a charm, thanks a lot!
