Owl popups

The new owl pop ups on the iPhone app are super cute. Today I got one when I had gotten 10 questions right in a row in a practice session. I was motivated by that to do an extra practice session. I have seen at least one other owl pop up too, though I can't remember what it was for.

Thank you for continuing to improve Duolingo. It is very appreciated.

Duo also pops up with a motivational message when you make a series of mistakes

Yesss! I love that new feature too! Also, the owl is named ''Duo''

Well, I'm not sure if that's official, but that's what everyone calls him.

In the German lessons, they call the owl "Duo," so I think it's official.

And I love him too! :-)

Luv Duo the Owl. Any sort of encouragement works for me. I'm learning Italian so he's sometimes called Il Gufo. Cheers Woof.

If there are random popups, I hope it's possible to turn them off. I like to have the same series of clicks after each question in order to get to the next one in the same way each time.

Yeah, its kind of weird we find an electronic owl motivating if you think about it right? But I like it too, and it works! I find it much more motivating than loosing health points. I have had it pop a couple of times just to say something along the lines of 'see how much you have learned, your hard work is paying off!'
