  5. Am I the only one who does no…


Am I the only one who does not like the new update to the mobile app?

This new update to the mobile app is awful. Giving us only 60 seconds to answer as many questions as possible is not helpful and very stressful. Instead, of reading the sentences or questions I am forced to guess so that I can try to keep up. I usually use the app on my lunch break so that I can take my time and make sure I am understanding the sentences, now I can't do that. Please tell me this is only temporary.

If you can, use the web version of Duolingo on PC or even on phone in a web browser.


@ally.x it looks like I'm going to be forced to. I also record myself practicing for my podcast but would use the mobile app to get the required xp for the day out of the way.


Honestly I haven't used the mobile app in a while though the PC version (web) seems to be a whole lot better like Im not seeing 60 seconds to answer as many questions as possible. try that


No. I'm sticking it out with the web version while it lasts.


@Eva33964 I will be so disappointed if the website does it too.


I do miss what they had before... strengthening skills. Now I have to go to each lesson and strengthen them individually. The new 60 second thing, just like with the timed lessons in Memrise, are too stressful for me. I will try it though once in a while because it's there.


Just got cut off in the middle of a Russian lesson due to flagging heart power. This is supposed to help me learn?


This is not Health - it's some new variation on timed practice they seem to be testing on mobile.


Seriously. I want to learn languages, not rush through them. At least the 'motivational' bird interruptions can now be disabled in the settings (on my Android at least) - hopefully we soon also have the freedom to turn off this timer.
