I like the owl

I see a lot of people complaining about the owl. I find it not at all annoying but, on the contrary, very nice. Am I really the only one?

They are talking about the owl in the mobile app. He pops out when you get 5 or 10 answers correct in a row, to give you encouragement. It's cute at first but sometimes it happens so often that it gets annoying to some people.

I like the owl and the idea of dressing it in different suits etc. If you don't like the encouragement messages, you can switch them off in the App in Learn => ... => Settings => General: Motivational messages.

Only on Android, which is why there's been a spike in complaints lately. The owl motivational messages just came to iOS (at least for me), but without a way to disactivate.
