Learn Portuguese with busuu.com is an android application based on the website with the same name, in which you can practise your Portuguese from a beginner level to an advanced intermediate level.
In the main menu, you can choose to start a Course by tapping on Course Selection. Then, you can choose the level and start with the units. Each unit has 3 sections: the first one, with pictures and small explanatory texts about the main topic, a dialogue between people and some questions regarding it and finally a review, in which you can answer questions that cover everything you've seen in the previous sections. You can also choose to listen to the text instead of reading it, or doing both at the same time.
Back to main menu, you can continue your course right where you left it or choose to overview the mistakes you made during the tasks you were given, which is rather useful.
The main disadvantages of this learning application are the following two: firstly, in tablet devices you can't see the complete questions: you only see a part of them and it's kind of hard to do some of the exercises. Second of all, some of the units are paid features and you need to buy them on the market, so not everything's free.
Useful application for Portuguese learners, but it should be fixed for those using a tablet and some of the exercises should be reviewed. Maybe they could add an extra level for kids who don't know anything about Portuguese but like to play around with their parent's devices.

It doesn't seem to sync with your account, however, so you will have to repeat lessons or just use it to practice things you've done before. Overall busuu is a terrific and fun way to learn a new language and meet lots of nice people.
I really like this app. I have a hard time learning new languages but this app keeps me motivated. easy to use and progressive so I dont get bored. Love it
Wish you could see what you type on the typing portion of the course. But if you don't learn with courses other users will make it much easier and fun.
Should be completely free...you should instead use advertising that is written in Portuguese. That accomplishes dual goals
The basic app its quite basic, but still you can practice and do some exercises and listenings. You have also writing exercise checked by other users.
