When Can/May We Get an Android app?

[deactivated user]

    Is an Android app in development?

    I can't wait to take this on the go.

    as soon as we can fill the position we'll start developing!


    The mobile positions listed here are for the Android developer we need: http://duolingo.com/#/jobs

    Our current mobile developer works on the iPhone app and will be able to fairly easily port it to iPad, but Android apps are coded in a different language (Java) and will need a dedicated developer to make and upkeep.


    Would you consider a tele-commuter? Don't want to move to Pittsburgh or NYC...


    I agree. I have a galaxy s3 right now, and the one thing that is keeping it from absolute perfection is the lack of the Duolingo app. I can't wait until the Android app comes out, and until then, i'm forced to use the website only...


    you guys did a great job! really need the Android Duolingo!!<sub>~</sub>~as an engineer&PM, even want to develop it by myself>_<~


    I already started: https://github.com/mic47/duolingo-unofficial

    It is just a webview that load duoligo.com and apply fancy css sheet, so the webpage displays nicely (facebook login does not work, you have to provide username and password).


    Cool - just completed a lesson using it. The screen is better than just going strait to the webpage, but it still doesn't fit exactly right. Do you have the sheet set up for a particular phone/screen size?

    Anyway, nice work and thanks for sharing it with us.


    I tested it on Samsung Galaxy S III. But it should be screen independent (I was putting 100% to all important elements), but for some reason it is a bit (few pixels) wider. I do not intend to develop full Android App, I just want something that is easier to use that web browser with minimal efford.


    so cool! will try it later today!
