Whether you’re on a plane, out of data for the month, or just somewhere where the internet connection is unstable, Offline Mode lets you keep up with your Glossika training!

1. This is a premium feature that is only available to users with a paid subscription.

2. Currently, Offline Mode is only available for the iOS app — be sure to download the latest version!

3. (Our Android app is currently in development. If you want to be the first to know when its released, or if you're interested in the opportunity to become a beta tester, please subscribe to our newsletter.)

This feature is only available for users of the iOS app who have an active subscription. If that’s you, update your iOS app to try it out!

What is Offline Mode

Download the new and review contents directly to your app so you can get in your daily reps even without internet access.

Download content for offline use

This new update allows you to download:

  • Up to 10 new sessions at once (each new session consists of 5 new sentences repeated 5 times, for a total of 25 reps), in addition to

  • Up to 500 sentence pairs for review (target + base language text and audio of a sentence you’ve already encountered)

Note: Please make sure to sync your offline progress with your online account before the day ends. Our system won't realize that you have completed your daily goal, otherwise, and won't issue you a medal for completing your daily goal.

How to use offline mode

1. Click the “Downloads” tab

2. Select how many new sessions you’d like to download in “New Session” and start the download

3. Select the sentences that you’d like to review in “Review”, and start the download

4. Once you finish the download, you can use Glossika without internet access

If you have limited cellular data and would prefer to download learning content via Wi-Fi, be sure to switch on the “Download via Wi-Fi only” toggle.

Switch between Listening-only and Full-practice modes

Just like with the online version, you can also switch between Listening-only Mode and the Full-practice mode at any time with the offline version.

Some scenarios:

  • Out for a walk and can’t fully interact with your phone screen? Use listening-only mode, then just listen (and record, if you’re available)

  • Up for a more intense session? Use full-practice mode to be challenged with a mix of typing, recall, dictation, and recording exercises

Offline progress syncs automatically

All of your offline learning progress will be stored in the app. We’ll then sync it to your online profile as soon as you have internet access: your progress will be seamless, whether online or off.

Sync across three devices

Your downloaded content can be synced across 3 devices. For example, if you have an iPhone and an iPad, content downloaded to your iPhone will be automatically synced to your iPad, too — you don’t need to manually manage all of your devices.
