Apparently the 10 consecutive day bonus only happens if you use the computer

I have just completed my 770th consecutive day on my Duolingo app, and was denied the 77 points I was expecting as a bonus. This also happened on my 750th day. I completed 760 on the computer, and received my 76 points. This is apparently a new feature of the app -- one that I really don't like. Alas. I thought I'd let you all know, so that you don't get similarly burned.

I usually use my IPad for lessons because I can do the proper accents there. I have been receiving my lingots presently, but there was a time when I was not getting them. I complained and was told that I was part of a test group...


Hi, this is the French forum, for getting help with French grammar, vocabulary, resources, etc. Could you please edit your original post and use the drop-down list at top left to change the topic from "French" to "Troubleshooting"? That way it won't clutter up the French forum, and the responses you get might be useful to others who look in Troubleshooting for similar information. Thanks!

I have been doing Duolingo on an Android device recently (because I can use the new "crowns" system there and I LOVE IT - but I digress). On the Android device I don't get 10-day lingot rewards but I every day that I meet my goal I get to pick one of three "treasure chests" and they will have a random number of lingots in them. So every day I have an opportunity to earn 1 - 5 lingots. I figure I average 20 lingots every 10 days that way. Less than I'd get for my streak but still not too shabby. More than enough for buying stuff in the store and giving them away to folks with good posts.
