Health on IOS

I have just deleted Duolingo from my IOS device:


This is because I got this new update with "health". It is so annoying as I can only make a certain amount of mistakes and then I have to wait a few hours before I can do Duolingo again.

Or I can use gems but it costs too much gems and I am not the type to waste my gems like that. This is really annoying and this is bad experience as it minimises the amount I can learn daily.

Please Duolingo, I need to Duolingo on a easy to carry around device and my phone was my only choice but now that is ruined.

Please take out the health system as I want to learn more. I have only just experienced how annoying health are and I feel sorry for everyone with this new health system.

It is possible to earn more health by practicing.

Guess what? It runs out even if you're paying. It penalizes you for making a mistake (which goes against pretty much ALL research on the psychology of education) and then stops you from practicing more if you've made "too many" mistakes (which clearly means you need MORE practice, not less) and it does this even if you're paying. Could anything be dumber?

You are right, and that is why they have added the "earn health by practicing" feature

So true, it is so stupid.
