Check out what I discovered today:
Duolingo's official Android XP challenge
Click for larger image

I'm not sure if the challenge an A/B or not. I checked to see if there were any announcements and I didn't see any. The only mention I think I've seen was someone commenting in the September bunny XP challenge. Though, I'm not certain.

Anyhow, so far I'm really digging (liking) it. Even though I'm already doing the bunny challenge, Duolingo's new official challenge makes me want to complete it immediately. If it is an A/B test, I hope it succeeds and sticks around. :)

My XP was even increased from 100XP (1st time) to 150XP on the Android app this time.

Bad news: Only Android XP mobile app gained XPs are counted - not any strengthen excercises from the website (as it works with Clubs)!

Thomas.Heiss, that's an interesting quirk. I wonder if it signals anything about Duolingo's direction in the future or not.

What is the bunny challenge, if you don't mind my asking? I have an iPhone, not Android, so I am not sure that I have encountered that.

Hi lilyflower, it is not an official feature. It is a challenge that I've been running for a couple of years in the forums. You can check it out here: 100XP A Day With Bunny challenge. ^_^

    Does the coach still only allow for 50 max? Well, I'll be keeping the 100XP A Day With Bunny challenge going for week 2. You're welcome to join us. :)

      By the way, speaking of 100xp challenges... I was doing your Bunny challenge (which I love, BTW!) and everything was alright until Tuesday when I was going to report my progress, but I couldn't find the post anywhere! I think it got negative votes and disappeared. :( Even though I couldn't comment, I have been keeping up with my daily goals.

      It has been playing hide and go seek with the vote count going up and down. Someone posting swastikas all over the place messaged me, then their account got banned, then they came back with like 30 puppet accounts to down vote everything I've made. (This used to happen a lot when the Activity stream existed. It's happened a lot less since it was taken down. I think that is one reason why staff are hesitating to implement a new thing in its place.) The only way to get to the challenge when it is hidden is through a direct link either generated by an email notification if you're subscribed or like the one I posted in a comment here. Additionally, the website has been having some technical difficulties, so discussions are leading to 404 pages off and on as well. If you go to enter via link and you get a 404, just wait a bit and try again. :)

      How awful! Well, at least I know what's going on now. I unsubscribed to email notifications quite some time ago, so maybe I'll subscribe to posts that I will want to come back to from now on.

        If anyone does not own a Smartphone:

        YFI: You can still use the Android app if you install an Android emulator like Bluestacks, Nox on a Windows PC (some may even support Mac).

        The emulator has support for local (offline) APK or offical Google Play store online installs.


        Sometimes it really helps to learn a new skill (lessons) for the 1st (learning) or 2nd (strengthen) round on the Android app with tapping instead having to fully type on the website portal.

        The next strengthen / lesson re-do excercises should not be exclusively on Android, but on the website, as you can make your own errors (e.g verb tense conjugation) while you have to type.....and you can, of course, better learn from those (done) errors.

        You will NOT learn (being able to RECALL) that much in the long-term, if you exclusively use the mobile apps and tapping all the time....they are too easy!

        I'm pretty sure it's a big A/B test. On Android I've had a 250 XP weekend challenge these last three weeks or so. It appears sometime in the afternoon on Friday and gives me time until Sunday night.
