I can select Cyrillic if I use desktop version. But I am on an Android phone and like earlie, iphone app gets Russian support earlier. ( They definitely hate android, that may be the reason for ignoring android. They still have not added new icons and human voices to the android app). So I have to use the mobile version, which does not have the toggle. How can I set Cyrillic as default on mobile website. I dont want to see this latin transliterated version.

You have to select it on the website first, then log into the app soon enough for it still to remember the preference. Hopefully they will add a button to the app soon.

Oh, perhaps I misread your question; you will have to view the non-mobile version of the website to select the character set. But then the app/mobile version of website ought still to remember it. I'm assuming that the android app is not radically different from the iOS app in this respect (the iOS app has no toggle, either).

Thanks, it worked somehow. I selected it on desktop website but it worked only after sometime or after completing chapter 1(may be).

Android actually got some languages on mobile before iOS did, particularly before the option to report mistakes was added to the iOS app. I think it's a little melodramatic to say they hate Android!

Edited to add: just looked on an Android device, and one of the options in the mobile version of the site is to view the full version.
