Windows 8 - Surface app

Hi :D I'm here to suggest a Duolingo app for Surface/Windows devices :) I really love this way of learning and i would like to have the same app i have on my android, in my Surface RT. Can you make it? :D

Thank you :D

Sorry to disappoint you but it is not going to happen any time soon. Luis has repeatedly said that there are no plans for it. I believe the last time here: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/1627314

The reason is that the DL team is only around 30 people, and it is a lot of work to develop and maintain an app for a new platform. That combined that windows phone/surface users are a very small percentage of DL users (I think something like 1-3 %, but I don't remember where I read this), it is simply not feasible to do for them.

I doubt that will happen.

Can't you just use the web version? Or does that not function properly on the Surface, for some reason?

I can use the web version, but its a little bit confusing. An app like the android one would be just perfect.
