Say Hello to Your New Placeholder

Welcome back, lovely humans!

We’re here with a short update for you all, but first…

You’re all doing fantastic, and we appreciate each one of you.

Now, back to the update at hand!

Everyone gets a new placeholder!

Every so often, we like to jazz things up to help all you lovely language learners. And that is why we updated the placeholder for when it's time to change an image.

Let’s run this down—you have an image attached to your flashcard, but you notice that it's no longer available one day.

That is a valid response, random internet person.

But no worries, we got you! There’s now a new placeholder image that lets you know when an image is no longer available. Additionally, it gives you an easy way to change it.

Check out the image below to find out how:

If you tap on the “pencil” on the placeholder, it will open a “Change Image Screen” where you can work your magic.

That’s it for now! We will be back for the next update, but in the meantime, make sure to drink some water and continue being amazing.

The Ultimate Undo

Welcome back, lovely humans!

It’s that time again to gift you with a delightful update.

Undo that thing!

Ever find yourself wanting to go back in time to undo an answer to a review session flashcard because you accidentally swiped the wrong way or pressed the wrong button?

Oh, we know you do.

Now, short of having a time machine and risking the space-time continuum—which could be bad—we have decided to do the next best thing for you all.

You can now undo review session answers during your review session. Yes, you read right! Simply find the three dots (...) on the right-hand side of the header and click on “Undo previous answer.” You will now have the opportunity to answer that flashcard again without risking a temporal paradox.

Check out this preview:

Now, just like with time travel, there are some essential things you need to know.

This feature is only valid for your current, active review session. If you leave the review session early or complete it, you won’t be able to undo the answer. This restriction also applies to the very last flashcard of each review session.

That’s it for now! We leave you this newfound power and hope to see you in the future, but also in the past.

Onward to the Future!

Welcome back, lovely humans!

We’re here with another update to keep the progress train going.

Audio bonanza

We hear that many folks would like audio when creating a flashcard in the app. We want that for you because having audio attached to flashcards is crucial for properly learning the pronunciation of new words in your target language.

As we strive to make this app the best it can be, we are happy to announce that many of your custom flashcards will have an audio file associated with them! We cannot promise 100% coverage for every word right now, but rest assured that we won’t stop until you have the best learning experience possible.

You have control

Video controls, including full screen, are now enabled for all videos in the app. Our goal, as always, is to provide the most efficient ways for you to learn the key fundamentals for effective language learning.

With that, we want you to check out the new “How to Learn More Effectively” section of the app. Keep looking out for new videos as we upload more guidance from Gabe on how to optimize your language learning with the Fluent Forever app.

Makeover time!

The most significant change in the app is the home screen and app navigation. We always want to look our best for you! Of course, there are additional reasons for this change, and Gabe covered many of these with you in his recent Fireside chat.

Here is a recap of some of them:

  • It brings the app more in line with the Fluent Forever method
  • It allows us to offer an easier user experience with what to expect within each section
  • It simplifies the navigation paths for users
  • It sets the foundation for a guided experience in the app (coming in the next two releases)

Change can be scary, but we want to let you know that everything is still there just as you had it before—only laid out differently.

Here is a quick overview of where to find some key features:

  • Looking for the tiles on the home screen that track your progress? You can find most of them by tapping the new icon at the top left of the screen.
  • Looking for the Explore section? Check out the Grammar button.
  • Looking for a way to create unique words or custom flashcards? Simply tap the Words button.

We have more updates coming, but fear not! We will be here to guide you every step of the way.

Remember: although change isn’t always easy, staying still won’t help you be the best version of yourself. And we know that your best version is fantastic!

So join us as we set the course for a new and even better tomorrow.

The More You Know...

Welcome back, lovely humans!

We hope you are well and staying safe out there.

Today we have some quick tips and tricks for your review sessions to help you get the most out of the app throughout your language learning journey.


We love the enthusiasm, random wrestling person!

Behold the almighty tips and tricks

Now, memory is a tricky thing, and even the best ones among us need a bit of help every now and then. So, if you come across a sentence during a review session and can’t remember the translation, simply hold your finger down on the flashcard to bring up the “See Translation” modal.

Also, if you find a specific flashcard too easy because you’re amazing (which you are) and you don’t want to review it ever again, all you have to do is tap the three dots (...) on the card and hit “Delete.”

When it comes to deleting flashcards, we recommend doing so when a card no longer serves you, either because it’s a duplicate of another flashcard or because you have retained the information. It’s essential to remember that permanently deleting a flashcard is an action that cannot be undone.

Awesome! Well, that’s it for today. Stay safe out there, keep drinking your water, and remember that you’re amazing!

It’s Time to Give Your Images a Touch-Up!

Welcome back, lovely humans!

It’s that time again…and no, we don’t mean returning those bad holiday gifts.

Okay, if those gifts are terrible, you do what you got to do.

Changing images

Much like exchanging those unwanted gifts, we bet that a lot of you wish you could change the images on your flashcards when doing a review session.

And that’s very valid. Sometimes the images aren’t suitable for you, and you don’t grasp the word, sentence, or concept you want to learn. There may also be cases where the image is no longer available.

Now, you don’t have to feel lost anymore. There’s a light to guide you...figuratively speaking. In other words, you can change any images that don’t work for you.

When these images pop up, go to the back of the flashcard and click on the three dots (...) in the upper right-hand corner. Here you’ll see a new option, “Change Image,” that lets you update your flashcard with new images, select additional ones, or remove an image that doesn’t work anymore.

Let’s see it in action!

You have the power now! So, go forward and add more spark to your language learning journey with shiny new images.

Until next time, drink some water and have a happy new year!
