Different number of questions on website vs. mobile app

I just noticed that there are always 14 question per lesson in the iPhone app while there are always 20 questions per lesson on the website. Am I missing something or is it just 30% easier to finish the lessons on the mobile app?

I find it much easier on the app, in part because there are fewer questions and in part because there are exercises where you are given all the words (plus a few extra) and just have to arrange them in the right order.

So I always learn new lessons on the PC and just use the app for practicing older skills that have decayed.

I guess you're right, there are other differences too. I haven't used the PC much, I usually just do it on my phone.

Do you have the microphone turned off on the iPhone? that could be the reason

Mic is turned on for both, however it doesn't come in to play with Portuguese. Do they have speech recognition for some of the other languages? I wasn't even aware of this.

Yes they do, that will be why you have less on the phone. When I turn the mic off for my spanish, the lessons get a lot shorter.

Are you doing portuguese on pc and spanish on iPhone? Because if I remember correctly, the very first few lessons have less exercises

Nope, Portuguese on both. I've checked the exact same lessons and the web has 20 and the iPhone app has 14. Just different on purpose I guess.
