Some other ChinesePoders have already mentioned the new layout, but I wanted to put in my own two cents. The appearance is somewhat cleaner, but the design is problematic. For example, the new method for listing courses in each course library makes managing previously studied lessons unnecessarily difficult. While the old design provided a simple, navigable list of courses, the new design makes finding a course frustrating and tedious. Also, the disappearance of the pinyin popup feature and the click-to-save words feature is disappointing. I find the sudden lack of such features has only drawn my attention to their importance to my ChinesePod learning experience.
