iOS and Android app completely different?


A friend and I are learning Swedish. The experience is pretty fun, but we noticed that my iOS app is completely different from the Android app, the latter being very similar to the website and the former looking way more dated. Of course, I am running the latest version of both iOS and Duolingo, so my question is: is this normal or maybe I am bugged?

This is normal. Duo seem to run separate development teams and each has their own development programmes which seem to exclude any sort of consistency between platforms (including the web interface). They seem more interested in running A/B tests among different groups than providing a standardised language learning platform, which in my opinion is a big mistake.
