Almost entirely word selection, no free typing, in mobile Strengthen Mode

I use DuoLingo entirely via the app.

When I "Strengthen" my skills, 95% of the questions consist of selecting words or multiple choice questions. Per lesson, there are 1 or rarely 2 free typing questions.

There used to be way more free typing questions. is this a bug, or on purpose? Is everyone experiencing this

I am learning way better with the free typing questions, and am seriourly considering leaving DL because of this...`I am using the Android app on Android 5.1.1, Cyanogen OS, OnePlus One, learning Swedish, lvl 11.

Also on the web, now you need to press "use keyboard" in order to type :)

I used to learn through the app, but then I deleted it. Try the website, it is more useful.

Yeah, it's irritating to only select words, not to write them. I was using the mobile app most, until recent changes. I use the mobile website now. In the mobile website you don't have choose words, you only write them

I'm running DuoLingo.com in Safari on my iPhone 6 and it works MUCH better than the app. Thanks for this info.
