So I recently started learning Swahili and I really enjoy it. However, I discovered that there is no way to access Tips & Notes on my iPhone. Is used to be possible to switch to the desktop version by clicking "request desktop site", but now I just get redirected to a mobile version that pretty much resembles the app. Learning a language like Swahili without any info on grammar makes absolutely no sense, since you have no way of understanding the patterns behind what you're learning, which makes learning take way too much effort. The absence of Tips, therefore, makes the course basically useless on mobile phones. Is there any way to get around this? Or is there maybe some sort of collection of the Tips somewhere? (I'll even take PDFs, I just want to access them SOMEHOW on my phone.

While I admit it's not going to help you right now, otsogutxi is in the process of making PDFs of all of the language notes. Here's the link: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/22993911

Oooh, this is brilliant! The post is three months old, though. I hope he's still working on it. That would help so much, and not just me, but probably thousands of other users too, I imagine...

That used to work. Doesn't work with the new website anymore. :-( But thank you anyway! :-)
