+1 here. They are excellent to read prior to getting into a lesson, wish they were accessible on mobile. They don't even need to look good :).

Agree. They're necessary to me and the mobile apps are useless for me without them.

Yes, please. They are quite useful in the browser version.

I can't believe this hasn't been addressed! Just realized I could practice on the computer and found the "tips and notes" section insanely useful! No more guessing at why things are the way they are! How novel to actually be told the rules up front!

Surprised this is still not resolved. Learning grammar rules explicitly can save dozens of hours of trial-by-error learning. And the increasing number of people using exclusively mobile apps rather than computers makes this an absolute necessity. Come on DL!

Seems logical to have the same content on web and mobile, please switch to a PWA architecture! Ask @Polymer team @Google! :)

Yes please! I practically use only the app and sometimes things get a little confusing without the tips and notes.

Hey Duolingo team! Any ideas on when this issue will be resolved? It looks like users have been waiting for two years already. As an iOS developer, I can tell that this could be fixed in less than a day. It's as simple as adding a button which opens a new web view and making one request to the server.

Tips have just been added for Spanish from English. I have other languages though and they are very difficult for me to get a hang of, especially russian since I have never studied a language with cases before. I have an android, so I don't know if it's different for iphones or anything else. But please add tips for the other languages too.

+1, no use of the app without the web browser. Just blindly guessing the correct answers. Is it not just a matter of adding a view with a static content for each skill that already exists in the database?..

I find many threads about this issue for the past 3 years, but nowhere I see an explanation from the Duolingo staff as to why there cannot be tips on the mobile app. Even a simple button that links to the website is too much to ask?

This would be so helpful!

I could swear that I was able to access the tips on mobile - not through the app, mind you, but on my mobile browser - as recently as last week. (I use Chrome for Android.) It was a relatively recent discovery to find them there - it lasted a week or two - but they were working, for Russian, Ukrainian, and Polish, at least.

Then, around 15 June 2018, there was some kind of big upgrade, and suddenly, the tips are gone again. What happened here, Duolingo? Having the tips available at least in the mobile browser, if not in the mobile app itself, would be very helpful.

Please, Por Favor, Bitte! Add the Tips & Notes functionality to Android!! We find them so useful and incredibly enabling to learn languages when we cannot access the computer...

Mobile is confusing. One day there is hearts and gems, the next there is lingots
