There's a glitch in mobile version

I teach Swedish in mobile version. A couple days ago I had a glitch which re-appears today. I usually keep my lessons yellow and immediately strengten them once they become colourful again. Suddenly, I have several lessons at once as the ones which need to be repeated. But, when I repeat them from mobile version, they do not count as '5/5'. No matter how many times I repeat a lesson from mobile, it still stays at 4/5. Once I open the same lesson at web and complete ir, it counts (doesn't matter was that the first time or the last one). Actually, when I'm repeating the lesson from mobile it keeps giving me the same wods again and again in that lesson (so that's not a case of too many words needed to be repeated). I had this issue a couple of days ago, and I have it again today. With the same lessons and the same words! I have never had the issue before, so I guess, it's some new glitch. It would be great to have it solved as I just don't have a possibility to learn from the computer and using web version from the mobile doesn't seem to be a case of great usability.

This happened to me on my phone with German. Hopefully it is fixed soon!

I've had exactly the same problem with Norwegian on the iOS app! So glad to hear it's not only me! I tried strengthening a lesson three times before just giving up. -_-

Happening to me as well with German. Probably annoys me more than it should, and progress has slowed dramaticly. :/

One of my students is having this issue with Spanish Adverbs and Objects lessons.

I've had the same problem for a week or two. For German and Italian the same words over and over again and the lessons won't strengthen to gold. I have to go through each lesson individually for it to work or use the web version.

I am having the same problem. Also in Swedish. I did one lesson 9 times even! The last three I have been working on all have had the same problem. I like to keep my gold bars full so it is frustrating.

Another one with the same problem - from an Ipad and learning Dutch... Very annoying glitch!

Same here! Learning Swedish from English and ending extremely frustrated because the bars won't turn gold no matter how many times I repeat the activity on my phone. Also, it doesn't make much sense to have more than 15 skills that need to be strengthen from one day to the next, does it?

Same with Esperanto. It's not just the app. I tried using the website on my iPad and got the same problem.

Add Portuguese to the list as well. I'm using the mobile version and have had the same problem for a couple of weeks. Some skills are just impossible to get up to 5/5. It doesn't matter if you do it several times in a row without errors. I logged into the website for the first time yesterday to see if there was any difference. It's not. I get the some problem there. This also must affect Duolingo's idea of your fluency. Right now I'm on level 12 and on a 22 day streak and still only 4 % fluent. That can't be right when I compare to what others have written here. Could please fix. Without this competitive part working, Duolingo loses its attraction completely.

Me too. When I strengthen individual skills on the iPhone, they don't turn gold and the list of "weakest words" is not updated. It doesn't matter if I do the strengthening exercise multiple times, or how many mistakes I made, and I've also tried repeating the individual lessons. When I do the same exercises on the website, the skills turn gold immediately after one practice. I've been back and forth a few times on a range of skills and I see the same pattern. My skills are mostly at 3/4 (on the app) or 4/5 (on the website) when I do the strengthening exercises. The bug seems to be in going from 3/4 to 4/4 - I did manage to go successfully on another skill from 2/4 to 3/4, then got stuck :( I am learning Swedish from English.

The only way I have been able to fill the bars is on my desktop computer. It doesn't seem to work in the app. However, when I fill them from my computer it updates on my app!

Same for me, usually the earliest and latest lesson won't go gold but sometimes ones in between. Happening on iphone using iOS 9.1 following latest app update.

I am already working towards level 21 when suddenly the audio of my desktop computer conked out and I had to skip the Portuguese dictations. I'm fine with the translations but my correct points get discredited every time I skipped the dictations. It was OK at first because I had more correct answers than skipped ones. But lately Duolingo has been giving dictations one after the other to discredit all my correct answers completely ruling me out of the game Since it appears that I am no longer following the lessons, Duolingo keeps giving me reminders to continue with the lessons. So I downloaded Duolingo on my iPad mini but it no longer gives me the same format. I so want to level up in mv Portuguese. Please help me. Thanks.
