User reviews affect conversion to installs and app rating. Featured and helpful reviews are the first to be noticed by users and in case of no response can affect download rate. This is why it is highly recommended to reply to them.
I’ve been wanting to get into programming a little so i downloaded a few similar apps and ran thru a few of their modules. Within maybe 10-15 minutes, I would exhaust their free content and would be pressed to upgrade to a pro account to learn any more. I thought about doing it for one of the apps even though the language i was looking for (C#) wasnt available yet. Then I found this app and my search is over! It does have a pro version like the rest, but it doesnt appear to hold back content from non pro members. It also has waaaaay more content to dive into compared to the others. I love that in addition to the learning/ module side, there is also a challenge mode that turns a tough subject into a game. Then SoloLearn takes it a step further and lets users share codes they’ve been working on INSIDE THE APP and you can run them on your phone to check out how they work. This is awesome and is going to keep me hooked for a while!
If you’re here purely for content then the app is probably for you. Goes over various coding languages and provides quizzes to test your knowledge. Having said that, be prepared to keep to yourself unless you enjoy being attacked. Guidelines state that you should search the QA forum for answers to your question before posting, however since the search feature doesn’t work properly you’re likely to post anyway and then be attacked by moderators or senior members who have heard the question before, but apparently don’t understand that the search feature is BROKEN. I don’t know about you, but I have no desire to be shamed for my eagerness to learn. Either fix your app so we can search up the resources we need, or manage your moderators and trolls. I’ll be on Freecodecamp until then. I’m leaving 3 stars because the app works okay (emphasizing OKAY because it’s been crashing constantly), but on top of all this, even some of the course content provides inaccurate/just plain wrong information and is counterproductive for people who are trying to learn a skill to advance their careers.
I really do love SoloLearn. I first came across it on my PC and saw that it was a great site to teach me programming in various languages. Therefore, I decided to get it on my phone as well. It has been a great addition to my journey in learning and it will continue to be. There's some things they could be doing differently, though. First off, I just wish they would listen to their community more and hear what they have to say. They come up with great suggestions and ideas for SoloLearn and they just seem to be ignored/forgotten, but I understand you guys are busy. I would just try to work on that a bit more. The last negative thing is that there is no Lua course. I have already grasped the basics of Lua and I have been looking for some informative/good tutorials, but unfortunately, haven't been able to obtain any. Overall, this app and community is great as a whole. I definitely recommend it if you're a beginner to programming. It dumbs down things a lot, so it's easier to obtain knowledge. Thanks for being so great to me and many others, SoloLearn. Cheers! <3
This app provides a great introduction or refresher to the basics of the most commonly used languages. Anyone, even without any knowledge of coding, could use this app to start off their computer science career. One of the places it is weak, though, is formally providing context and background on the languages. Solo mostly relies on user-contributed comments sections for this, but they are often lacking or overly repetitive. Finally, this app won’t give you the longitudinal projects (like a capstone project in college) to become fully literate in any of the languages, so you don’t get much else but the basics to early intermediate. Overall, this is a great place to start for anyone. If you some background in computer science from one language, you’ll easily dive in and pick up other languages from the well-ordered lesson plans.
Overall this is a fantastic app and a fantastic system to be able to learn any of the programming languages offered. I would highly recommend it. The one problem, however, is that the Community Forums use a ridiculously small font size on any device, with no way of enlarging it. This makes it practically impossible to read at length, no matter whether you are using an iPhone or an iPad. I use an iPad mini most of the time and reading the forums really hurts my eyes (I am 48 years of age and I don’t wear glasses). Just look at the screenshot provided in the app’s own description! The font size in the Community Forum is tiny and there is no button or setting placed anywhere to change it unfortunately. The reason that this is such a disabling factor is that the community forums are integral to making progress in this app and are one of the most amazing and helpful things! Discussions are available for every topic and for every question and every answer. And that is just the most helpful thing you could imagine as you try to learn a new language. So I pray that the developer adds the same button that is in the coding lesson text to the community forums to change font size. Then this app would be perfect in my opinion and I would gladly come back and make it a five star review.
