Hi!
I hope the devs of this promising app are reading this, as I'd like to point out some accessibility issues which are making the experience feel unpolished.
When I launched the app for the first time I found myself on page 1 of a tutorial introduction. Trying to go to the next page immediately landed me on page 5, where I had to decide whether to sign up or try the app. I double-tapped on "try the app" but got taken to a signup screen which I had to dismiss by activating a button called, somewhat cryptically, "forme 14."
Generally there are a lot of unlabeled buttons, especially in the store, and also lots of buttons just saying "buy" but with no indication of what exactly it is I would be purchasing.
I took a very brief look at the first story it suggested, and found as the very first choice that was presented to me: "Go back your book but stay alert."
Sorry for sounding picky, but if you want to be all about text, you should do better than to showcase sloppy writing.
Cheers Perry

Many unlabelled buttons. Double tapping the menu button is also a bit of a disaster. The only thing I get there is a log out button And there is no back button either.

I also agree that the app feels somewhat unpolished. The only way I got out of the menu button, where I was presented with a log out button, was to simply close the app, then force close it out of the app switcher, and then open it again. I did play through the train story but it sort of jumped around a bit. I was successful but I have to work at it, due to the unlabeled or mislabeled buttons. I think this app has great potential but the accessability needs some work.
