Why are my PC and iPhone versions different?

I use my iPhone version more often than I use my PC version just because it is easier to use. However, because I use my iPhone version more often, I earn more Lingots on my phone. But I have noticed that the Lingots don't transfer back and forth from my PC and iPhone version, resulting in that I have almost double Lingots on my phone, than the PC. Is this normal or is it just me??

iOS uses Gems while the web version uses Lingots. Duolingo is doing this as a little experiment to see how successful Gems are. Hopefully they commit to a single currency in the near future.
