Speaking Exercises included on iphone app update this week?

Hey Duolingo, thanks for the amazing app! Are speaking exercises going to be included in the Iphone app update this week? PPPPlease :D

March 12, 2013



There will be some big updates this week :)


ooohhh, I like surprises!!! ;)


In the interest of not making a new thread I will post here. I have been using the iphone app as well as the website. While using the iphone app I have, on occasion, messed up and hit the check button before I finish typing the sentence. This should lead to a lost heart however if the sentence has been typed correctly to that point the app tells me I am correct and proceeds on with the lesson without penalty. This has happened a few times and only in questions that require a manual entry through the key board.

On a related note for keyboard entry requirements for the iphone it would be nice if the check button moved to the top of the text box to minimized accidental pressing while using the keyboard


If you have one misspelling we let it slide. Is that what you're talking about?


nope same problem here, I've been marked correct having just written one word after i accidentally pushed the check button before I'd finished typing out the question


Yep, Powerwig has it right. I have had it happen with as little one correct word typed to three or four out of a six of seven word sentence. Does not happen every time but I'm clumsy enough with my thumb to have observed it a few times.
