Hello everyone,

We are SO proud to announce that we have successfully launched Tinycards, the new and fresh flashcard experience by Duolingo!

In case you haven’t heard, Tinycards is made by Duolingo, which means that you can log in with your Duolingo account, practice on official language decks by Duolingo, and learn all sorts of content through a bite-sized and satisfyingly fun deck system. Oh, and it is also 100% free!

For now, it is only available on iOS (other platforms to come!). If you have an iOS device, give it a go—create a Tinycards deck or learn something new from an existing one. And please come back to let us share your suggestions in the comments! We’re still working hard on it and really appreciate the input of Duolingo users.

Visit the tiny.cards website and learn more about it, and follow @tinycardsapp on Twitter to stay up-to date on all news about features and decks -- you can also sign up to be notified when it is available on other platforms. ♥

So not to be a downer here, but why is Duolingo putting effort into a space that's already been covered really well by Memrise and Quizlet among others? Memrise, for example, has (unofficial) flashcard courses for most Duolingo courses for English speakers as well as a large library of courses in many other languages. What's the motivation for Duolingo making its own flashcard app right now?

It's a good question because the app is substandard compared to Duo.

If you add a word, then it gives you a typing option to practice, but if you write a sentence, it's just flash it to you. So it's truly a flashcard app, no more, no less.

I was hoping it would allow me to add alternative answers or optional info, but it doesn't. Quite disappointed. I do hope that it will have the features soon.

Short answer:

Duolingo is not doing this in spite of Memrise's popularity, but because of it.

Long answer:

First of all, Memrise has already proven that there is a high-demand for a flashcard app with social features, so Duoligo does not have to take that risk themselves or put a lot of money into making their own research on whether this concept will be popular.

Also as you mentioned Memrise is actually profiting off Duolingo out of no effort of their own, because user generate duolingo courses. Of course this in the end hurts Duoligo, because their users rely on a different website for vocabulary practice, which keeps them away from Duolingo. Many reviews focus on how Duolingo is lacking as a language learning site, because of its poor possibilties for vocabulary building. And after all there is a risk that users might stray from Duolingo after finding out about Memrise and more importantly: After using it on a regular basis precisely because of those unofficial Duolingo courses.

A brand which, in the general opinion, only works in collaboration with another does not have a strong image. As long as it is IOS or Android, McDonalds or Burger King, Coca Cola or Pepsi, both brands profit, because the perceived rivalry makes the customers feel a closer connection to their brand. If it is "Duolingo and Memrise", the users feel like both brands only provide an incomplete experience and to people who are not yet familiar with the brands, both blur into one.

With Tinycards Duolingo tries to ensure that a larger percentage of users stays faithful to the brand. Soon new users looking for a bigger focus on vocabulary building, won't be met with comments that, more or less open, state that Duolingo is simply not suited for this sort of practice and they should look for other apps and websites to supplement as well as direct links to those, but with recommendations for another Duolingo product that is meant to meet their demans and all that in a design they are already familiar with. And who knows, maybe Duolingo can even build up a rivalry with Memrise rather than a begrudging symbiosis. I'm alredy seeing the occiasional "Is TinyCars or Memrise better" discussion popping up on here.

Finally, imitating websites/apps that are based on user-based content and putting some actual effort into creating content that so far had only been offered by amateurs, is a huge moneymaking opportunity. For example Kitchen Stories also treaded well covered ground, but is now the Number 1 cooking app. The reason is that unlike other cooking apps with badly lit photos and recipes whose quality can only be .assessed by also user-generated ratings, Kitchen stories offers good and easy recipes that are explained well in high-quality videos. Duolingo is now trying the same and, as it seems to quite the success.

Let's see if the inital popularity will waver out or if Tiny cards can actually replace Memrise atleast on the Duolingo discussion bord.

As far as I am aware, DL has never set out to try to be everything a learner needs to first learn and then practice language skills, and retaining a learner beyond his or her completion of a tree isn't part of the game plan. If it was, DL would not have abandoned Immersion, which uniquely provides an opportunity for learners to venture into translating real documents instead of merely memorising fragments of vocabulary.

Yes. They stopped both developing it and trying/pretending to deal with abuse of it by some users a couple of years ago, ie around about the time they realised that paid translations were not going to pay the bills. Immersion was the training ground for people learning to translate real world documents.

About this idea of Mem. keeping Duo users away. I am sure there are others like myself, that use Mem. as an auxillary or warm-up for Duo. Time spent on Mem. means less time on the same module in Duo., less mistakes, less use of the hints, which I think has bearing on the frequency of re-dos. Now if Duo. can come up with tinycard decks that match, it might work. Let me say this about Mem. in re. the decks. I've done quite a few and have noticed that the decks, usually, have more words in them than what the same Duo. module calls for. That should tell Duo something. That's like going to another barber while your old one is on vacation. They not only cut the hair but trim the eyebrows without asking, something your old one doesn't do.

I use duo and memrise every day on the spanish courses. Unless I'm off in a weird course, I don't see how memrise is a flash card course; it's much like duo with sentences and spelling, just no speaking parts.

2 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/allenfrang

Well memrise is much more primitive, in that it doesn't really accept any alternate translations and doesn't really have a grammar engine that can detect sentence word orders. It's just a direct one-to-one relationship between a concept in two languages, whether it is a word or a sentence.

And because that's all it does, it tends to do that one thing better than Duolingo.

This results in serious learners resorting to using several apps to have a complete, useful and balanced learning experience.

So with stuff like tinycards, the Duolingo team is aiming to be more involved in that learning app ecosystem so that eventually learners will rely on them entirely and therefore will spend much of their learning budget on things that provide revenue for the Duo team.

As a learner all that I care about though, is having a good learning experience that is affordable :)

Allen, I so agree with you, memrise is good where there are no choices, but there were many places where I was marked wrong for using alternate answers. I get marked wrong in duo also, but I can report it and esp in the English trees it is corrected, then they send me a email to say they now use my answer :) that in itself is a reward. After using memrise for a while I quit. I have a program called "Vocabulary Master" that suites me very well except that it does not allow long enough entries sometimes.

IMO TinyCards will be the most appealing to those who are not already heavily invested in other flashcard providers. Some users may want to transfer over to TinyCards, but most will stay with the card decks they are into already. You will see an influx of users saying "I like this" etc... And "Hello", "test" etc... Just like the forums here. I am a newcomer to online flashcards and was looking for something like TinyCards for my family. Just lucky I guess!

Well on your point that Memrise is "hurting" Duolingo, users are making use of Memrise to create courses as a reaction to the deficiency of Duolingo's vocabulary and flashcard features. There's no real auto-generation about it, there's a lot of work that goes into making a flashcard course consistent, accurate, and usable (something I'm skeptical of for TinyCards).

That said, I can see why Duolingo would like to create some sort of official product for flashcards and vocabulary. A larger issue I see with this app (based on reviews, I don't have an iOS device so I haven't used it myself) is that it appears very bare-bones, in other words it is not a very mature application. Memrise, on the other hand, is quite mature with wide support for different features and approaches and, importantly, sporting a massive library of content. Even if Duolingo creates (or auto-creates which would go poorly IMO) TinyCards decks for all courses offered on Duolingo they would rely on users to generate more content for them and in that sense they are very much behind in this race. That's not getting into the specific features that appear to be sorely lacking at this point.

Therefore, call me cynical, but if branding is the only reason Duolingo is going in this direction, I'm not impressed. And if they try to throw their weight around and demand other apps like Memrise remove courses for Duolingo vocabulary (not a huge leap if this is a branding thing), that would be the last straw for me. Either way, I'm not switching to a new flashcard app that doesn't have the content and features that Memrise offers just to go even further into Duolingo's walled garden and buy even more into their brand.

2 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/Xanaxandra

Well, I'm not disagreeing ;) However it should be kept in mind that the Web 2.0 market is especially fast moving and therefore especially rough. And while Duolingos tactics can sometimes be annoying they are still way less annoying that those of 99% of apps and websites, namely ad spamming and Pay to Play.

I can't say much about TinyCards as a product, because I don't have IOS either, but I will give it a shot once it comes out for Android. After all, to use Kitchen Stories as an example again, despite its unoriginal content is a damn good product. I always found Memrise to be a bit unwieldy (more of an anki person myself), so perhaps Tiny Cards will strike a better chord with me. After all one thing that Duolingo is really good at is design.

I also think we had a slight misunderstanding, when I said Memrise is profitig from Duolingo without effort, I meant Memrise as an organisation: It's owners and employees. Memrise conent is user generated, so if a user comes up with the ides to put his/her own effort into creating a flashcard deck to enhance the learning experience of another hugely popular language learning site, Memrise is gaining traction and therefore profit, without any investment of money or work from the company itself. And I can see why the company who actually came up with the generation of the vocabulary that is now in the Memrise course would be kinda sorta pissed by this.

Fair point, but the percentage of courses that their employees "actually came up with the generation of the vocabulary" for is getting smaller all the time. It's already down to 6 out of 21 of the courses for English speakers, for example (29%).....so far.

All this talk about Memrise made me curious, so today I downloaded it and tried it out. What a great app! It makes learning vocabulary so easy. I did lessons for Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Arabic, and Tagalog. I never studied Russian or Arabic before, and after only a few minutes I learned some words already. And the lessons on Tagalog are excellent. Now I have an app to help study Tagalog while waiting for the course on DuoLingo to release.

While I understand such a branding approach, if Duolingo is not carefull, they may actually invite more spite on them from the users, than the profit. For me as a paying custommer of DL - may I be an example, - the transition was actually in opposite direction. I had found Memrise first, I saw its potential for Vocabularybuilding and only when I realised that I need better connection between the vocabularies I learned, I had jumped on the Duolingo opportunity ... after that I had prefered duolingo-sychronised courses on Memrise as a additional step (where available).

That said, Memrise is really good at what they are doing, nevertheless they are having weaker position in the long term (in my opinion) then DL. If DL will press hard enough, they may happen to hurt Memrise really bad (but I do not think it would work in the other direction) ... at the same time Memrise is offering much larger variety of courses/languages than DL does or ever will do.

I am actually waiting if ever I will see the english-chinese DLL to come or English-Latin courses. ... those are still yet more probable then others, which are already covered in Memrise.

Also I am wondering if Duolingo will ever manage to create course for deeper english learners (Will they? - probably not) .. I am improving my English vocabulary on Memrise to the CPE level .... English teaching courses on DL are close to useless to me...

So basically said: I am paying Duolingo and well I do not pay to Memrise (right now), but if Duolingo would hurt Memrise to the point of collapsing or close to it, I would be indignated and angry...

As for now, DL and Memrise are not competitors as Pepsi nad Coca-Cola, McDonald and BurgerKing ... yet DL is willingly going in to the direction to be on such terms.

It is true that apps like memrise and lingvist appear to be better at building vocabulary. Though, to me, it seems easier to improve the "words" section on duolingo itself than creating a whole new app for it. Anyway it seems like tinycards is meant to integrate well with duolingo so we'll see. I hope it is also possible to create custom flashcards on there, as with memrise.

I have nothing to say about Memrise or Quizlet as I have never used them. I sure do wish I could export a card list out of Dulingo and into Anki though. Duolingo lessons are awesome. I in no way want to replace Duolingo with any other program. Duolingo will never match the utility that Anki has for me for one simple reason. Duolingo is specifically a language learning platform. I have several decks in Anki which include the languages I am studying in Duolingo but also several other subjects that have nothing to do with language. I don't really want Duolingo based flash cards because then I would be splitting my cards among two apps.

A nice improvement for the main website/app would be appending the IPA spelling to every word and phrase inside the app. It could be grayed out or in a lighter shade, it could be a toggle option and they could take the spelling easily found on https://www.wiktionary.org/ to just copy paste. I think it wouldn't hurt the design, there's plenty of white space around and this would be the best use for it.

Considering IPA is not a language but an alphabet supra-set of sorts, it can be easily learned with a tiny cards deck; a more complete one is needed, but in the mean time I found this one useful: https://tinycards.duolingo.com/decks/2JtL7Viq/ipa

Then having the IPA spelling inside duolingo courses we could always be practicing the correct pronunciation of words. Because the loquendo/vocaloid or whatever speech synthesis duolingo uses helps but it can sometimes pronounce things in a weird cadence or way. And it would be greatly appreciated for courses that have little to no audio too, like Irish Gaelic, Ukranian and others.

So yeah, I think there's a use and a reason for tiny cards to exist.

Not all the decks are that great in quality -- you're right in that there isn't the same kind over overall quality control as there is, for example, for Duolingo courses. But some courses on Memrise are very, very good.

Gonna agree, Quizlet filled a much needed void during my college experience and while I was trying to supplement a gap while learning Cherokee...I used Quizlet to make excercises out of the few Cherokee textbooks I could get my hands on. It does not have a clean look or feel, is gummed up with ads, and just not an attractive app. It was free though, and it worked. Memrise is tonnes better, and I think Duo can do it better if they really want to. That said, I hope this doesn't pull focus away from adding languages to the incubator (and coaching stalled languages out of the incubator...)

Good first release. Very easy to use, but....

Sync progress to Tinycards for official courses. Sync strengthening back to Duolingo for same.

Need to practice decks offline.

Create a separate forum (topic) for Tinycards.

For creators...

Needs bulk import from spreadsheet for creating decks. <-very important

Perhaps have option to use platform TTS for languages, if you do not have a full set licensed yourself.

Allow use of Duolingo graphics, in addition to import of device images and Internet search.

I think mobile is great if you want to quickly create a small deck, but not for anything big or complicated.

Hopefully the web version when it comes out, will have more control .... and more features ... like importing decks from a file etc.

Idea:

One thing to consider is IPA support. [No don't laugh ... not yet anyway!]

In addition to your current language list (where you select the TTS in deck settings for each deck face) you could add IPA as an additional option.

Then a fact containing an IPA character, could have the corresponding sound played during tests.

This would allow a lot more useful decks to be created. Particularly for languages not in your current (TTS) language list. But also for any language where you want to teach the pronunciation of the alphabet or equivalent. For example: I gave up on the Hangul deck, as there was no audio.


For users who do not know IPA:

Given that most people do not know IPA, perhaps add a 'I know IPA' user setting (that is defaulted to no). This would hide the fact item that contains an IPA character, where IPA is selected for that deck face (as the language). This is so the IPA characters do not confuse users that are not familiar with them. They would never see or be tested on the IPA character itself. They would only experience the audio during review and testing.

There is a deck available to learn the IPA, that is called International Phonetic Alphabet. The description of that deck, or similar decks, could prompt users to change their setting, once they have completed it.


I hope I have explained this well. It just seems like a small change, that most people wouldn't even notice, but would add a lot of benefit - especially in decks teaching different alphabets/scripts or pronunciation etc. Functionality without adding much visible complexity.

Problems:

OK, I have seen it claimed, that some languages have variations of the IPA, which might mean more than one IPA had to be listed in the language selection list. Also should a virtual IPA keyboard appear if deck creators have selected IPA as the language for the face being edited? Or perhaps just a button to make it appear? Or force them to copy-paste the characters in? Or perhaps even a lookup using a semantic web interface (to a site like Wiktionary or Wikipedia or wherever this is defined adequately and is accessible in a structured way)? Also, I doubt users (learning the deck) should ever have to enter IPA characters in a test, even though they have said they know IPA in their settings. It doesn't seem practical or useful. There may be other problems to sort out. However, I think the benefit of providing phonetic audio for languages not in the currently handled (TTS) language list, is much greater than any problems like these.

It isn't so much that some languages have variations of the IPA, it's that there are variations of characters for sounds and variations of sets of characters, and not all languages use the same characters or sets, since not everyone agrees which character or set is the cardinal one. An additional problem is that not all characters show up for all users on all systems.

A basic familiarity with IPA would be very useful, however. That I will heartily endorse. Wikipedia has a number of charts available, some with audio (I haven't looked at them all, so I don't know if they all have them.)

Thanks for the feedback. I hope I have understood you.

Regarding custom IPAs: I tried searching for where this was stated but couldn't find the reference. I have a vague idea that the claim was made about Hungarian, but had no luck in Google. I just remember reading about it and thinking it sort destroyed the idea of the IPA, if you had to customise the sound of the existing IPA characters. [Or was this what you were saying - that there is no consistent and universal set of sounds for the IPA characters?]

Regarding different representations in the IPA: I agree... you get more than one IPA entry listed in Wiktionary for example. So a USA IPA representation and UK IPA representation for the same English word. I assume the same is true for some alphabets etc. I could imagine a deck creator having to say (in the deck description text) which country (or region) the IPA characters were for. I see this as a feature though - you could create some very specific decks - and not be bound by whatever the TTS was defined for.

I would assume that the IPA fact item, would appear like an image to learners (who know IPA). No entry required. Other learners would only see the speaker icon for that fact item. There are IPA fonts out there, so Tinycards could use one to allow a consistent IPA editing experience for the creators. I imagine most of the time creators would be copy-pasting from Wikipedia.

I also thought that having an IPA fact item (that could be hidden) might encourage IPA use. Currently, why bother learning it, if very few decks use it, and why bother creating an IPA deck, if very few people learn it. It's a deadlock.

I suspect that a big part of the reason people don't use IPA is because they don't know it exists, and if they do know, using the special characters is such a PITA that they don't bother.

But about custom IPAs: I don't think I've ever seen that phrase, and the idea of using a character to mean something other than what it is generally accepted to mean isn't quite what I meant. What I did mean is that different groups of scholars may converge on different graphemes to represent a sound, and much academic discussion occurs as they hash out which, if either, is to be considered the cardinal grapheme for that sound. That, or two groups use the same grapheme for different sounds, and bicker about which group is right.

In addition, some scholars may not use a particular grapheme at all. For instance, I own a book called 'Phonetic Symbol Guide' by Pullum and Ladusaw, 1986, which claims to be an encyclopedia of phonetic transcription. A casual perusal comes up with a dotted a (å), which they call 'a with over-dot', and which they give short shrift because it is not in general American usage. But tell that to the Norwegians, who use it All. The. Time.

The utility of IPA for TinyCards is, as far as I can figure out (I haven't looked very hard at the TC app) is that if one could get a coherent IPA set for that language, one could make a deck with it, and thereby practice the spoken version of the language. Even a truncated version of IPA would likely help with most (though not all!) vocabulary, assuming the specialized characters don't show up as blank boxes on your screen because your computer is confused. It is this latter effect which I would presume would cause the most issues -- if Duolingo cannot guarantee that all users can see all characters, using IPA may actually harm them more than help them.

Currently, it appears that Duolingo uses the standard Roman character set, with select special characters for select languages. The student is beholden to learn what those letters, Roman and special both, sound like in that language. It is a compromise that likely works with most people, most of the time. The addition of IPA may be more trouble than it is worth (though I would argue against that!)

Thanks for all the info.

I am beginning to think that the information, about 'custom' IPAs, was not true and has been removed from Wikipedia, since I came across it years ago. I had another search just now and nothing. Sometimes people like to brag about how complicated or unusual their favorite language is. I am going to put it down to this.

I have a degree in Linguistics, and nobody's language is more difficult or more easy than anybody else's. All languages have their idiosyncrasies (synthetic languages like Esperanto attempt to avoid this; not all succeed.)

Tinycards may or may not be useful, but it seems ironic to me that Duo has put effort into doing something that other providers already do pretty well while abandoning the facility which (AFAIK) is unique to Duo, ie Immersion.

It's really bland, could you add some extra features? like if there is a factual error, you can report that and send a little message to the course creator, to let them know what to change.

It would also be nice if Tinycards synced with Duolingo course progress, for example when I strengthen a skill or complete a skill it would update on both DL and Tinycards.

"This app requires iOS 8.2"—So, not available to people with second-hand phones currently (which can't install anything above iOS something or other, such as my iPhone 4).

Currently, this app plays into Apple's marketing strategy of forcing people to buy upgraded hardware to run software that—I'm sure—could EASILY be handled by the hardware in my current handset. But for some reason anything released after a certain date has software dependencies that mean I can't install it.

Duolingo was built to help provide education for people without resources, I'm sure many others don't have the latest and greatest hardware either. In that spirit, could the developers please look at whether it's possible to rebuild TinyCards so that it's backward compatible as much as possible?

The removal of "add fact" or whatever it was called is EXTREMELY disappointing.

I use these for my Latin classes primarily (as I teach high school Latin). Before I could have a word on one side, its translation on the other, along with a picture to aid memory. For examples, search me on the app (Magister_Smith).

Now I can only put a word on one side and a word on the other. No picture to aid memory. And I can't JUST put a picture as the definition since it may be unclear what exactly I am drawing attention to in the picture.

I cannot express how disappointing this is, and how much less useful this makes these new decks I am making.

Why delete a feature? Your twitter said "users prefer this". But users could simply have not used the feature. Cutting it is a real detriment to those of us who liked it and used it.

Please, PLEASE consider adding this feature back. I honestly cannot understand how taking an optional feature away, which in my mind makes the app much better, can improve anything.

I use this in my classroom. Please help this teacher keep this resource useful, Duolingo.

So far i'm really impressed by the new app, and can't wait to see what's done in the future. Right now, the biggest things it needs are:

  1. Official Duolingo courses for all courses.

  2. Better syncing with Duolingo. It just never works.

  3. A "new" tab. Similar to "Your Stream" but it shows new decks not made by followers.

  4. I have noticed the start of this with the new "Suggested" decks and how you advertised some decks on the app store, but I think it would be great to start to get more of this. Down the line, I envion almost an "App Store" for decks. Around the fourth of July, you'd have a banner that advertises "Learn about American history with these great decks", and it would take you to several U.S. history themed decks. Obviously this might work better when you release on web (soon?), but it's just something to consider.

  5. A Tinycards forum here. Please.

Great app so far!

Just gave Tiny Cards a try, and so far the decks available for learning Danish are very limited, and not useful to me.

Worse, at least two of the decks I looked at had mistakes. I didn't see a way of flagging this or correcting.

I had hoped Duolingo would add flash cards, but I had in mind something within the app, like a way of adding a word or phrase to a collection that you could access later as flash cards. (Similar to the way on the new Kindle ereaders anytime you look up a word in a book you're reading, it automatically gets saved as a flash card.)

A good place for this would be when you get something wrong. Right now a flag pops up with the Correct Solution and below that is a Report link (same as if you get something right). A more useful link than Report (or in addition to it) would be Add to Flash Cards.

Then there could be a link at the bottom where the options now are Learn, Social and Shop. (Speaking of Shop, I'll never ever come close to spending my 1197 Lingots.) I have no use for Social and Shop especially; flash cards would be so much more helpful.

The decks are created by users, not by Duolingo. (Some are created by Duo staffs but I wouldn't consider them "official decks"). This app's content will be created and distributed by the community itself so no reporting/flagging anymore.

I understand it's user content. But if one can't flag mistakes so that whoever created the deck can fix them, people who don't know any better will learn something incorrectly. I for one wouldn't want to ingrain something into my brain only to later find out it was wrong.

My main point was flash cards would be far more useful inside the Duolingo app itself, where the user could add words, phrases, etc., (by tapping an Add to Flash Cards button or similar) that he needs help with. Not only would the deck of flash cards be super-simple to create, it would be completely personalized for each user.

I tried tiny cards yesterday. I love its Spanish flash cards but I didn't appriciate how I had to choose 3 subjects even though I just wanted to learn spanish. Whenever I log on it is a hassle to find the Spanish cards amidst the random science and history cards. Also I didn't check if you could make your own cards or not but if you can't that definitely needs to be added in. If I were rating it I would give it a 4 out of 5 stars, but i can only say that for Spanish since I am not learning anything else but from the looks of it more subjects will need to be added.

I do enjoy this app and hope to get a lot of use during the school year, but I wish I had a website I could use, rather than the phone. typing on a keyboard would make constructing the decks a lot easier.

I also wish I could switch the order of the cards, basically that I had more control over making the decks.

Tiny Cards got worse! I have been busy writing out decks for advanced French learners fully conjugating verbs in 14 different tenses. I have finished Avoir, Étre, Aller and se laver. The cards used to allow you to input additional information in text boxes on the back of the card, this has for some reason recently been removed making it impossible to continue writing these cards for further verbs.

To explain the problem this has caused:

Old card
You had gone.

Informal singular female.

Plus-que-parfait.

Possible answers old card. Tu étais allée .

New card.

You had gone

Possible answers new card. Tu étais allé, Tu étais allée, Vous étiez allés, Vous étiez allées, Tu fus allé, Tu fus allée, Vous futes allés, Vous futes allées,

The leaner cannot know which of these different responses is required without knowing the additional information as given in the old style of card. This seriously restricts the use of Tinycards for more advanced language learning, Which I took to be their reason for being. I hope it will change back. Bryan

Tinycards problems:

  • There's no way to report errors or bugs. I encountered a card marked, on the Esperanto side, "for EO" supposedly meaning "away, distant." I believe that "EO" is an error denoting that it's Esperanto -- but it's considered part of the answer.

  • The current app requires you to learn a word exactly as it is on the flash card -- even if taught differently on Duolingo. If the English for a word is, e.g., "Really, truly," tinycards rejects an answer such as "Truly, really." That's not "learning," that's just rote memorization. The app should be able to distinguish that if it teaches me a word meaning, e.g., "supper," and I answer "dinner," that these are acceptable synonyms.

The most interesting advantage over Memise, for me, is the aspect of making new decks. Firstly, Tinycards allows to create a deck from the mobile app, (something I've long waited on Memrise) which is great because I need to add words to my own decks as I run into them. Secondly, Tinycards automatically reads the words for you in any language, while Memrise requires you add a voice recording to each card.

Can you tell us what the plan is for creating the rest of Duolingo languages in Tinycards? Will you be doing something along the lines of the incubator? I am primarily interested because I created several decks during the beta test related to Irish, and am deciding if I will do any more. If creating the entire Irish vocab will be done by a team (or perhaps through a semi-automated process), I would be happy to help, or at least, to not duplicate the effort.

Suggestion: cards or decks that haven't been unlocked should still be able to be opened. It is good to be able to track what I have done, however, I may well wish to jump into the middle of a course or deck, and it is frustrating to be unable to do so. For example, would like to go through the German course in order, but I want to start somewhere in the middle because I am already competent in the early decks.

Note: Memrise allows this.

Thanks! That worked great.

I suspect they may be linking info from our DL progress to Tinycards. When I went to try out your suggestion, I noticed that I can get to any deck in the Spanish course, and each deck is at about three quarters strength. I can assure you that I have not gone through all those Spanish decks, nor did I complete the last one individually (which wouldn't have given me three quarters on all the other decks). That makes sense since they have. Indicated that they would someday enhance the Words functionality- I guess Tinycards is it.

Having tried it out, one thing I really didn't care for was the 'I already know it' feature. I would rather the app decide when it feels I am strong rather than deciding it myself, especially once I realized I have to say I'm comfortable with each item before I finish the lesson or it will just go on indefinitely. Something I love about Duolingo is that it has algorithms that tend to be quite good at knowing when I am comfortable enough to end the lesson. I would prefer Tinycards be similar.

A good thing about it is it is very clean compared to similar services out there. I hope many more longer courses will be added in the future though, ideally official ones made by Duolingo to go along with the courses on here. I am mainly interested in flashcards for Welsh and Hungarian right now and Memrise definitely has those covered much better than anything yet available on this.

I would also like to be able to make decks on my computer rather than on my phone. The phone is a great way to use flashcards, but much less pleasant for making them. Is that any kind of possibility in the future?

Short request: TinyCards badly needs an option to 'reset' your progress so that you can do a deck as if you for the first time.

Context: I'm very impressed with TinyCards--and discovered DuoLingo from TinyCards' cross-marketing.

I do have a suggestion to make the app more usable for children. I've created some TinyCards for my 8 year old to help him learn subtraction 'math facts' like 14-8=7. He enjoys using the program much more than the similar apps the school had recommended. However one large problem that has stalled us: after he has gone through the entire deck once, THERE IS NO WAY TO RESET HIS PROGRESS and start over. As a consequence, the app only offers a few cards each session, so his sessions are quite short now, and therefore he isn't able to practice enough to learn the cards that he has forgotten.

I understand that the app allows you to 'strengthen' past cards you knew by assuming that there is some memory attrition--I am taking advantage of that feature in my own use of TinyCards (Spanish and country names). But this built in 'refresh function' is insufficient if you are a kid who has said "I know that card" for a bunch of cards you don't know. Maybe the same problem would arise if you do a deck and then return to it later after you've forgotten most of the material?

A reset button would be nice.

Answers other than "I know it" and "This card needs practice" would be good too, another app I use has 5 answers from "I don't know it at all" to "I know it perfectly" and how soon you see the card again depends on your answer.

If you hit "This card needs practice" in Tinycards it seems like you see it again too soon and too many times.

      I love Tinycards! They were just what I wanted. I always loved Duolingo, I just wanted some kind of official flashcard deck, and this is better than anything I imagined! I prefer to use Tinycards to Quizlet. Only suggestion I would have is to add a settings option for the word in the target language be read out automatically rather than manually. I'm a audial learner, so it would help me to hear the word as well as see it but not have to tap the audio everytime.

      Is there any intention of allowing users to create flashcard collections - similar to the Duolingo collections (for example, the French deck is split into the different parts of the language tree).

      I would love to create multiple decks for French that I could then keep under a French collection. Then I could create a bunch of Japanese decks and have them under a Japanese collection, and so on. It would make organization MUCH better.

      If it's not currently on the roadmap, please consider! Thanks for all your hard work! :D

      Because iOS is the best-selling operating system in the US for mobile phones, whereas Android tends to outsell iOS in most of the rest of the world, especially in the high growth markets Duo is supposed to be targetting for English courses.

      And, as someone else has already pointed out, iOS belongs to one company and is only used on its products, and hence development is supposedly quicker and cheaper, whereas Android belongs to Google but is used across many independent platforms, thus making development more fiddly.

      I finally decided to try out the tiny cards app and, sadly, I am not impressed.

      1) Most importantly; there is no availability for offline use. I know we couldn't hold the entire card database on our wifi only devices; but I would have liked to see something like a draw 25 feature that would allow us to choose up to 25 cards that could be accessed when we have our devices but cannot get online.

      2) What, no Duolingo points for practicing the flashcards? If I can't access these offline and I don't get points for studying them online then what, pray tell, is their advantage over the already existent Duolingo app? Sure that only works online but at least I get points for studying on it and it presents the study in the form of sentences so I am able to study grammar as well as vocabulary at the same time.

      3) When a word has more than one meaning, and the creator has put all meanings on the card, the system requires that the student enter all meanings in the order that the creator put them. This can be confusing and frustrating. Instead why not allow the creators to make cards with more than one correct answer? This is another reason the regular Duolingo app trumps tinycards

      4) I like that any one can create them ... but anyone can share them? I just took a test the other day and only got a 2.35 out of 5 - I don't think I'm qualified yet to be creating study aids for other users. I say let all users still be able to create decks for their own use but only allow those users who either are part of the languages course creation team or who have been able to achieve a 5 out of 5 score on the test share the decks they create.

      5) Why make us choose multiple interests when we first sign up? And for that matter what is with the non language subjects presented? (Listen Duolingo, you have cornered a great niche here in language education and yes it's always good to branch and put your eggs in more than one basket. But, as any blogger can tell you, when a website branches out too much it tends to lose followers. Additionally your site name 'duolingo' implies it is a place for language study and that is what draws people to it; If you must add more to duolingo than the awesomeness of learning another language then why not, instead of courses on math, science, art, and so forth, add courses for native and fluent speakers to teach them about the evolution, history, nomenclature, and nuances of their languages?)

      Re: #3, it is possible to include multiple facts on a card, and when testing, individual facts are used rather than all of the facts, e.g. I created a card with the English word "dog" on the front, and the Irish words, "madra" and "gadhar" on the back. Having this feature is dependent on the way the card is created.

      2 years ago

      https://www.duolingo.com/Indarozino

      Hmm, but can the user enter just Madra or just Gadhar as an answer, and then get a message saying the other word is also correct, or are both required at the same time?

      In all the tests I have run since creating cards with multiple facts, I have never been asked to type the answer for a multi-fact card. In the multiple choice questions, it only ever presents a single fact from that card, i.e. it shows Madra or Gadhar, but not both, so I don't have to choose between them.

      2 years ago

      https://www.duolingo.com/Tokumei-no-B

      iOS is often prioritised by developers because the hardware is much less diverse than android phones, making it easier to develop for. By diverse I mean that there is a much smaller variation in devices. Android has many different companies making multiple phones with different chipsets in them. Android apps have to support all of these. I might be completely wrong in this, but I assume that's why tinycards is only on iOS for now.

      What i do not understand is why duolingo has not incorporated a platform for vocabulary learning. Memrise is really good for learning words, but then there is a problem of abusing flashcards with sentence memorisation with no flexibility or even typo recognition. It is like having a vocabulary section in a language tree, which is not needed. I believe that duolingo language tree works really well for grammar structures, where sentences take up some space and time to be digested, with an option to get translation for each word separately. For pure vocabulary and idioms, though, memrise-esque flashcards would work much better. One major thing they are lacking is filtering of words. I feel that each course is just more or less random collection of words that are thought to be of the same difficulty. I am not sure, but it could also be that some of the words repeat throughout the courses, which is a waste of time since same words have to be reviewed for several times. Hence some sort of personal list should be built up, and then parts of the list should be review rather than courses. As for much further future, one could think of some sort of AI, which could use the words from the personal vocabulary list as well as the level of grammar based on achievements in the language tree to hold simple, somewhat structured, but mostly random conversation with the user, such that known grammar structures would incorporate new words, since the current language tree is kind of stuck with what it has been given by the moderators of language courses. In conclusion, duolingo should basically copy memrise while keeping its quality control and add that platform to itself. I really dislike using N different websites to practise different aspects of languages.

      2 years ago

      There have been multiple comments about that. iOS is easier to develop for, so it doesn't take as long. Android hardware is so diverse it is more difficult to make an app run well on all devices, unlike iOS, which only runs on iPhones that are very similar to eachother.

      You're talking to another android user/fanatic here and I totally understand. But I don't think you should look at it like that. And if you're not a fan of that answer, what would you like to hear instead? A lie? It's simply the way it is. If both versions of the app were to start development at the exact same time (which may or may not be the case here) the iOS version would simply be done sooner. Releasing that first is a good way to launch a new platform and get early feedback by a group that's significantly bigger than an alpha or beta group.

      Flash cards might suit some poople, but I'd rather be able to just see and hear the full vocab list for every language. I don't want it random or haphazard - I want it comprehensive (but grouped) so I have concrete feedback of what I know here. Lists help build a connected mental model that holds together even when the model of the grammar is not yet well formed. I've reached the point I do need it for regular reminders of languages that are newer to me. "Strengthening" is not sufficient on its own.

      If you are looking to distinguish yourself from other systems, I want to be able to recognise the sounds as much as the visual words so I become comfortable to converse, not just read. I'd love to be able to listen to a playlist of all the exercises, spoken, on loop through every topic I've covered so far. Perfect for train journeys standing up.

      I would like to see: 1. Multi-sided cards (3 or more sides) 2. The ability to create my own subgroups of cards not auto-split by number of cards 3. A better shuffling feature when strength building 4. Better formatting options. At the very least there should be a return key to create lists

      Hello Duolingo. Tinycards is a great initiative.

      But however, why do you not have a website (before opening it to android users)?

      It would be great way to check, if you can share with the existing duolingo users the beta version, so that we can share with you any bugs which we find.

      Reply awaited. Thanks for your support.

      I love TinyCards so far but I don't get one thing: I'm almost at the end of my French tree here and I always keep everything golden. When I open TinyCards I don't have a single golden deck, not even the most basic words which I obviously know. And not only that, but it takes 5-10 or more times to practice a deck in order to make it golden, which is totally fine for new words but not so much for the basic decks containing words like garçon, fille, etc.

      Of course I could just let go of the fact that every deck should be golden, but then it won't give me an accurate idea of which words I actually forgot and which ones I simply decided not to practice because I know too well.

      So not to be a downer here, but why is Duolingo putting effort into a space that's already been covered really well by Memrise and Quizlet among others? Memrise, for example, has (unofficial) flashcard courses for most Duolingo courses for English speakers as well as a large library of courses in many other languages. What's the motivation for Duolingo making its own flashcard app right now?

      Great. I just started using tiny.cards on my Android device and it worked properly.

      It is a little weird could to use, no hints, but after some little efforts I could manage it.

      However, I suggest heavily that in decks with two distinc character sets the direction of the question do not change card by card. It is quite boring and takes precious time to change the keyboard so many times.

      Another soluction is never to have to enter the native language. For instance, if I am learning Russian for English speakers, I should set the keyboard to russian for once. Cards in Russian would offer alternatives in English; cards in Englis would eithersometimes offer alternatives in Russian and sometimes ask the user to enter the answer using the keyboard.

      We suppose that the learners should be able to spell the words in their own language...

      I'm glad you have finally provided this service. Here are the ways that I think would improve the Tinycards service.

      1. Link the time practicing Tinycards to your XP in DuoLingo
      2. Make the website interface more user friendly (you can not go back to view all decks of a particular course once you have chosen to practice a specific topic without going back to the Tinycards homepage)
      3. Allow all cards learned in particular course to be practiced together (i.e. can practice multiple Duolingo lesson's cards together)

      IMO it is a good move to limit the number of cards in a deck. It is easy to just download thousands of cards that most people would not work through. This would take up lots of space on your device(?) I think we are downloading these decks that we favorite. Am I wrong, maybe it is just the decks we make? Does anyone know? Many users would benefit from very focused card decks that correctly utilize the best learning techniques we can squeeze into a deck.

      I for one am delighted Duo are taking on Memrise and look forward to trying Tinycards as soon as it comes to Android. Yes vocab learning is all- important and yes currently you need a solution outside of Duo; that's why there are so many Duo courses on Memrise and why so many Duo users use Memrise. It makes no sense at all for Duo as a company to let this situation persist. The Memrise app, at least on Android, is so poor - lots of little bugs, confusing navigation UI - I sigh whenever I open it - you have to believe Duo could do it so much better. And on the content creation side there's so much room for improvement. Why can't Memrise do automatic TTS ? Why can't you upload audio files in bulk ? Why are you uploading audio files at all ?!? Why can't you create content from mobile ? McFly ?! Duo uber alles!

      If you press a letter on the iOS keyboard, such as an 'e', and don't remove your finger but hold it on the letter, different versions of that letter with different accents will be displayed, and you can slide your finger (without removing it from the screen) to the version of the letter you want and then remove your finger to select/type that version of the letter. The same thing works with punctuation such as question marks and exclamation points.

      I am enjoying TinyCards so far. One complaint I have is that the "make card invisible" function is extremely tedious. For example, when I started reviewing Duolingo Spanish, I kept getting words like "hombre" and "mujer," so I went through the Basics lesson to "hide" most of the words I already knew. But it took a long time, and it was, like I said, very tedious.

      Another issue I'm having is that I'm unable to easily find the "official" Duo decks. When I signed up, I was forced to choose three categories to follow. But now if I want to add a fourth one, I can't seem to find any way of doing so. And I tried searching for "DuoHistory" etc. and got ZERO results. What gives?

      Briefly tried it and it looks really good! I hope the browser and Android versions come soon and I REALLY hope that there'll be a feature which you can import a spreadsheet of vocab to make flashcards as I have a ton of vocab to go through flashcard style :D

      tiny card is good apps not for only learning language but also lots of general knowledge as well .... as much as anyone criticize no one can deny that it is a good step toward the right direction because learning general knowledge(including language ) has never been so fun... So i want people to appreciate what duolingo is trying to do here instead of judging what is the lack of that apps.... good luck duolingo....

      Well on your point that Memrise is "hurting" Duolingo, users are making use of Memrise to create courses as a reaction to the deficiency of Duolingo's vocabulary and flashcard features. There's no real auto-generation about it, there's a lot of work that goes into making a flashcard course consistent, accurate, and usable (something I'm skeptical of for TinyCards).

      That said, I can see why Duolingo would like to create some sort of official product for flashcards and vocabulary. A larger issue I see with this app (based on reviews, I don't have an iOS device so I haven't used it myself) is that it appears very bare-bones, in other words it is not a very mature application. Memrise, on the other hand, is quite mature with wide support for different features and approaches and, importantly, sporting a massive library of content. Even if Duolingo creates (or auto-creates which would go poorly IMO) TinyCards decks for all courses offered on Duolingo they would rely on users to generate more content for them and in that sense they are very much behind in this race. That's not getting into the specific features that appear to be sorely lacking at this point.

      Therefore, call me cynical, but if branding is the only reason Duolingo is going in this direction, I'm not impressed. And if they try to throw their weight around and demand other apps like Memrise remove courses for Duolingo vocabulary (not a huge leap if this is a branding thing), that would be the last straw for me. Either way, I'm not switching to a new flashcard app that doesn't have the content and features that Memrise offers just to go even further into Duolingo's walled garden and buy even more into their brand.

      By the way, I do not know about other courses but I can tell you this about the Russian course. Duolingo cannot demand that the course of Russian with Duolingo's vocabulary and sentence be removed from Memrise.

      Well, they can, of course, but the author is under no obligation to comply. It is right in their terms of use: I compiled the course for Duolingo, however, the materials and the contents of the course are not exclusively owned by Duolingo. Thus, I am free to use them whereever I please.

      It just so happens that having a Memrise course by cherub721 with similar content and improved voiceover pleases me :)

      I think it's because techie people tend to be iOS users themselves, so they are more geared towards that system. Which I could understand if the product they are making was some expensive, fancy lifestyle app.

      But with a product for which the explicitly stated target audience is people in poorer countries, trying to get ahead in life by using a free app, it is indeed incomprehensible.

      It's interesting to see that Duolingo tests some things on iOS (Duels, Tinycards), and others on Android (ads, and aren't the sentence discussions only available -- again, thank goodness! -- on Android?).

      Edit: Oh, and I think some courses come out first on one app and others first on the other, after having existed on the website for a while. But that may be a function of the timelines of the different app stores.

      Someone had mentioned the possibility of Memrise stealing attention away from users of DL...I am currently making use of Hebrew on both.

      I was really enjoying using the tiny cards app, but it seems to have updated so that I must now type out every answer. Now it's really tedious, and things that should be quick reviews are taking forever. I feel like I wasted a lot of time making hundreds of cards on an app that went from working perfectly for my learning style to being in opposition to it overnight, with no prior warning.

      I'm not on iOS so I don't have access to tinycards yet but I'm wondering if there's any integration between duolingo and tinycards. There are certain words that I struggle with regularly and they don't come up frequently enough in my duolingo lessons to have them stay in my memory. I'd like a way to select a word in the app and add it to a tinycards flashcard collection so I can quiz myself on those words even outside of duolingo.

      Does such a thing exist?

Just tried the sign language, the Spanish, the world leaders, and looking forward to trying the music notes. Duolingo really gets it, including the brilliant and refreshing graphic illustrations! Thanks very much for providing these free resources, as it's more important for the world population to learn unencumbered by financial pressures. Much gratitude, Duo!

      So from what I understand, Tinycards is going to teach a wide range of subjects and not just languages. I'm an android users so I haven't been able to check it out yet but I'm curious to know if ASL will be included in this new app? I currently use Memrise for ASL but I use DL for my German lessons. If I can do both through DL I will gladly make the switch. Thank you!! ^_^

      Duolingo tends to focus on present tense. Most of the past tense sentences are in the section on past tense, I understand. Basically, though, you use the -is ending for past tense.

      • Mi vidas - I see
      • mi vidis - I saw

      Improvement for Tiny Cards: for German, it does not specify whether it is asking for the formal, informal or plural you. This should be made clear. Once you make a mistake, it is easy to remember which form of 'you" is intended. But it should be an easy fix You (formal), or You (plural) or You Guys, etc.
