Time Points

Time points should, IMHO, accrue whether you finish a given section of a lesson or not. You still put in however much time before you crashed, burned, and started over.

Very good point! We are thinking of adjusting how the total time spent is being calculated in our future updates, but at the moment it registers only the completed segments.

Adding to this post:
I note that the program (at least the Windows desktop version) does not at all record practice time (neither points nor time itself) when in loop or in "practice a highlited section" mode.
That is really frustrating; we may sit there and practice for hours and the program would simply not recognize that.

I suggest the program should record any usage time, no matter whether online, offline, looping or just practicing a highlighted section. The time should simply keep running until there is more than e.g. 30 seconds of zero user input and then stop, discounting the last 30 seconds and continue running with the next key strike. I personally don't care too much about time POINTS being added in all cases, if that is difficult to find an algorythm for or to program, but fixing the timer should be fairly simple.

Got it. I saw your last post too. Like Mariya said, revamping the way we track time is something on our plate right now, for sure. Not sure about the timetable though. Just be assured that we're not ignoring that aspect of the app - it should be fixed!
