IOS app keeps crashing?

I updated Duolingo yesterday and it's been 24 hours and the app keeps closing and crashing, not letting me even get to the second question of a skill...

Am I the only one, or anyone know if this is gonna get fixed?

Thank you for posting this; I and other people can now forbear installing this update for the time being.
I also suggest you submit a bug report.

You're not the only one:

Since it's already been 24 hours, it is probably safe to report a bug.

Having exactly the same problem as of yesterday. Get to third question then crashes. Has there been a new / change to settings? Help!

This has been happening to me for the past two days. I am losing bars. Please fix ASAP. The app cuts out and closes particularly when the microphone appears for me to speak. I am using Italian language.

Same situation using my iPad. After one or two questions the app quits. Was working no issues prior to update 2OCT17

Latest fix 5.1.14 solves the problem!

Try disabling speaking excercises by turning microphone to OFF in your settings.

Which settings? Duolingo is not added to the microphone privacy settings on my iphone. And there's no microphone setting on the website as far as I can see.

Tried it, did not help, not even after a restart of the iPad

same here. The app is not crashing but still kind of open if you click the start button twice. But it minimises. I cannot get into the app at all, regardless of what I do. I'll be travelling over the coming weekend and cannot take my computer along, hence losing my (admittedly small) streak if this issue is not fixed until then.

Oh great! So I reloaded the app, and now the Norwegian course is completely gone :(

I updated the app on my iPad last night and it also crashed. It was working fine before the update.

It crashes as soon as it tries to access the microphone. All other functions seem to be working fine.

I updated duolingo today and it won't run anymore on my iPad 2 with ios 9. Before the update It crashed also often but after the second or third try it worked finally. But now… nothing :-(

I did not have this problem one year ago, I am having it now. The iPhone app crashes all the time, on any normal use of the app and for certain when it is put to the background and pulled up again

I've only had the iOS Ipad Duolingo app for 12 days and just paid for it. But for the last 3 days straight ( July 8th - 10th - 2019 ) the app crashes 20 -50 seconds into any lesson before I can finish it. I have uninstalled the app several times tried restarting the iPad and even signing in and out of the account. I've submitted two bug reports as well and the App is fully updated at 6.25.1

:Update#1: the app will continuously Crash even when Im not touching it at all. Ill just leave it afk on whichever tab and after about a minute it simply "Black Screens" then returns me to my iPad home screen.

:Update#2: App still wont stay open for longer then a minute, Will send another bug report every day until solved. Will ask to get a refund now, if at all possible.

Anybody have any ideas? Thanks 4 12 hours ago

When I had this, the solution was to delete the app and install it anew

It says all data will be lost- when you reinstalled, did it still keep a record of all your progress?

July 13, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/rabiakiva

All my progress was saved. I guess it sits in the server, not on the client

https://www.duolingo.com/Tristan103647

damn, I've been doing that for the last 5 days now, logging in and out deleting the app and turning the iPad on and off, nothing works. Ive sent 5 bug reports now.. A few people are sending me similar messages on a thread that I made
