Roast my product: Panda HSK – iPhone app to learn Chinese

Context: I'm on a n iPhone SE, no reason to learn Chinese, just roasting here! I didn't read the other roasts to be unique, so there could be double things here.

There we go:

  1. Font is super big. On my screen there is not so much space.
  2. On the main screen (practice, subscribe now, progress..) you communicate a lot. I'm not sure what is the most important thing I should do next.
  3. When clicking on practice i get a list of buttons. This list is scrollable, and while having that is does not feel native (not sure if you care or should care)
  4. If you click subscribe now the content again is scrollable on the screen. This seems not needed and cuts of the tiny text on the bottom. Seems like a design bug.
  5. It still says well don't after i clicked everything wrong and the last one is right.
  6. I would remove the red color a 1 second after you clicked it. I would also remove the try again text after 1 sec.
  7. The result screen is quite overwhelming (maybe because everything i did was incorrect. Also not sure where my attentions should go to.
  8. I don't like the fat black borders around the buttons and in the layout.

That's it!

Thanks!

On the main screen (practice, subscribe now, progress..) you communicate a lot. I'm not sure what is the most important thing I should do next - you're not the first one to mention it, I'll be working on making it cleaner in the next release

When clicking on practice i get a list of buttons. This list is scrollable, and while having that is does not feel native (not sure if you care or should care) - it has to do with your screen size, while I'll be working on adapting on making it look nice on all screen sizes eventually, at the moment I'm focusing on making everything look nice on more standard iphones

I would remove the red color a 1 second after you clicked it. I would also remove the try again text after 1 sec. - I like the idea, added to my to-do list

The result screen is quite overwhelming (maybe because everything i did was incorrect. Also not sure where my attentions should go to. - thanks for highlighting this, I might make it simpler, only highlighting the words you got wrong instead of a log of all your answers

Is it okay to add paid subscriptions after launching a project without a way to use it for free?

You can give a trial for 2 weeks without asking a cc. Make sure they know this upfront. Converting people that don't fill in a cc to a paid user seems difficult and I'm very happy I asked for cc for Simple Analytics.

Is it possible to hide the user's IP address from a tracking script?

I don't want to give that data to CloudFlare indeed. I will not record the IP's but I can't prove that to my customers. But yeah, I don't know how (if indeed possible).

What should I do with my Go Fucking Buy It list of SaaS products?

Cost per sale versus cost per click. I think the buyer needs to go via your platform. You will add the rel= to all you links over there.

Charge when user made a sale. That’s fair for everybody I would say. COS instead of COC. Just make sure you send the right rel=gofuckingbuyit and let you makers implement a little callback to you platform with every sale from gofuckingbuyit. Otherwise not show them on the platform.

I do realise this is quite some work for the makers. But this way you have a solution for every size. Price could be a percentage of the sale. Or a first month for reoccurring sales.

I think I know people what you mean but want does COC and COS mean? So make money when a sale has been made? And every maker must add a rel=gofuckingbuyit ?
