There is no Duolingo app for windows phone 8 os
I recently discovered this site on a windows phone forum and was curious to see whether this would be as good as the person described it to be. I was blown away to see how everything is structured for a beginner like me and how fast I was learning my new language. The best part too is that it is free. The only problem is that there is the official duolingo app for both android and apple os but nothing for the windows phone. I understand that the windows phone doesn't get the attention from some developers as fast as the droid os and ios but I was just wondering if the app might ever come to windows phone store at all. Duolingo is an amazing language learning service and I would very much like to know if it will ever come to windows phone devices in the near future.
Thanks runem! Here's what I was thinking of doing, and what you may be able to do: use Duo's website as your backend, but have a script that transforms the site entirely to make it look like a mobile app/hook into an app... I know that this is an oversimplification, because I am trying to be general here.
Yea I was thinking something along the same lines, or to use the api calls that the current DL site uses. But I'm just worried what DL would think of that, I don't want to offend them in any way, I love DL too much! Have you had any feedback from them about an unofficial app?
You just caused me to do some math.
World population: 7.234 billion people
Languages Duolingo helps learn.
German: 100 million speakers, or 1.38 percent of the population Dutch: 28 million speakers, or .38% of the population Danish: 5.6 million speakers, or .07% of the population Dutch: >3 million speakers, or .04% of the population
Maybe it's just me, but I'd think that the effort to support a language learning process on this site is more time consuming and costly than developing a simple app that gets all of its data feeds from content already completed for the website.
Yet, multiple language lessons supported on the site are spoken by percentages of people much smaller than the market share percentage of Windows Phone and, in most cases here, the actual number of Windows Phone users.
The market share excuse is no longer valid or relevant.
Well it looks like it's officially coming.
Good work, people!
