Magically added known words, app and desktop don't play nice together bug.
Sorry but I don't have a way to reduce the Known words number on your account.
Can you post a link to a lesson you had that issue with?
Also, can you let me know what do you think the Android app is unusable?
Yes, when you click the complete Lesson option on the last page, all your blue words for the whole lesson will be moved to known. There is no reason to keep blue words. The idea is that you either need to learn them or they are known. (or you can ignore words).
It was the back 5 second button that made it unusable, but I just checked and it appears you guys recently have modified it. It used to be that if you so much as touched outside the button by one pixel it'd kick you out of full text view into sentence view and then into synchronized view if you missed it by one pixel again. It'd happen to me about half the time (I even showed the app to someone else, told them to press the button and sure enough, very first time it kicked them out of the full text view). And you couldn't go from synchronized view back to full text view without stopping the audio, but it appears that has changed too. I'll definitely give the app another try, it should be much more usable. It appears to be a major improvement, thank you! I shouldn't need to do my screwy method anymore. I'm excited to try the app out again!
It would be nice for the speed control to be present in all views, but it's not absolutely necessary.
I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree on the forced lingqing and auto moving to known.
Just did my lesson for the day, and the app is much much better. The view didn't accidentally switch even once. Good work Lingq crew! I no longer consider the app unusable. I'm really happy I can now do my lessons on my phone when I'm away from my computer.
