Hello my friends, we are now finishing LingLing - mobile application for learning languages for iOS and Windows Phone. 
 
It uses spaced repetition alghoritm (application similar to the classic system of supermemo), gamification and mnemonics. 
 
I was using this application to learn Thai for about a year - 20-30 minutes a day  learn gave me ability to read Thai and memorize 4000 new words a day (in the end of the year I plan to make 7000, which should already allow me to speak freely in this language). 
 
Currently, we have free versions on Android:
 

The application for learning English LingLing:
The application for learning Spanish LingLing:
The application for learning French LingLing:
The application for learning German LingLing:
The application for learning Chinese LingLing:
The application for learning Thai LingLing:
 
As we are now in the last stage of developing this app for iOS and Windows Phone i would like to ask you, if you could give me some feedback about the app - what we can improve, change or maybe you have some interesting ideas, how to make this app even more effective and easy to use.

 
If you have any problems with using the app - you can fin tutorial here http://www.joinlingling.com  here are all the features explained in details.
 
Thank you in advance for your help guys!

I think the first thing you should think about is the landing page.

You have a beautiful learn-English site which home page is . . . in English . . . the language your targeted client allegedly doesn't speak.

You should solve that by detecting user location by its IP address, and then redirecting the home page to the one in the user's location native language.

look up "Geo location" or alternatively offer the user a choice of flags so they can click it and then it will re-direct to that language.

The choice of flags is done already - also the plugin in joomla has set the language to choose automatically by the language in the browser - but surely better will be by ip (but then for example the guy that lives in Thailand and want to learn Thai will see Thai site and dont understand it :))
