I'm using Chinese language if this makes a difference.
(Edit: Just checked with Spanish, seeing it there too.)
(Edit 2: iLingQ 2.3.1 on Android 4.1.1)
The synchronization issue is still a problem. Well, it does seem to sync my lessons that I open while online but I do have to remember which ones those are since occasionally all my active lessons are listed even when I'm offline and not just the ones that are synced. None of the flashcard data syncs with the website. I'm not sure if that is a step forward or back from the way it was done two versions ago. Back then it would sync the data with the website and then later erase that data when the app was opened again.
The newest version of the app opens on my Galaxy Tab 2 by the way, thanks.
Syncing, as we're finding, is one of the most difficult issues to overcome, particularly with online/offline. We recently found out that even Google, who not too long ago introduced some offline features for their products, still has very strict limitations on what can be viewed and even more so on what can be edited while offline. Obviously we still want to allow offline viewing, studying and proper syncing when returning online, but we'll see how things develop over the next while and whether it's something that we can properly support.
Regarding flashcard syncing, we'll continue looking into this and see what we can uncover.
Lessons from a different Spanish collection worked. Everything I've tried in Chinese has worked, the German and Arabic "Who Is She" lesson 1 both worked.
I'm on wifi at home doing the testing.

Push "Info". Select "How to use iLingQ". There are two buttons in the caption - "Back" and "Done". Pushing the "Back" button always cause error: "Application iLingQ has stopped unexpectedly". BTW, the "Done" button gets the user back to "My Lessons", so the "Back" button is redundant.
Option to disable automatic loading of audio. At present I have to bother with preloading an audio through Wi-fi or turn-off GPRS to avoid traffic charges (anyway, there is no much sense in loading ~15 Mb audio using ~100kbps channel (=25 minutes of waiting).
@a5m - As you mentioned, if you open these lessons once while connected via wifi then you'll never have to load them again through the app (unless you clear the cache or the lesson is pushed out of the list). This is actually the biggest reason we added local caching, since we wanted to help users like yourself who can't rely on wireless data to download the audio files. However, perhaps in the near future we can take a look at your suggestion.
@chumnutzly - Are you trying to download it from Google Play? It's also on the Amazon Appstore, but they take a bit longer to test and approve the app so the most recent version isn't yet available there.

Thank you for your explanation. I am using the program for several days only. Definitely, the local caching is very important. Just to develop my point: Mobile traffic may (or "will"?) cost money, even if it is high-speed connection. I am sure, a user is not really going to *always* listen the audio for *each* of his lessons. Therefore, it is reasonable to make the audio download as option, especially in software developed for mobile device.
Personally, I see the main use of iLingQ as to *review* of my lingqs in context or in flashcards (e.g. during coffee break) or to *preview* the lessons (e.g. downloaded before bedtime or during breakfast) that I plan to study in detail after my work. I am not sure if I ever use the audio as I can't put on headphones while at work; and in the car I listen to MP3 player.
I have a problem with the cache. There is option in the "Settings" named "MP3Cache - 0/100MB" together with the small red button "Delete". I thought 100 MB is the maximum size of the cache. But now I have it like "111/100 MB". "Delete" button do not respond.
I have noticed the text part of the flashcards (in Daily LingQs) does not scroll. When I try to check Phrase+Hint of the flashcard some of the text do not fit into the screen of my smartphone (320x480). It will be really nice to be able to scroll it.
