Difference between Duolingo on computer and on IPAD.

I have been attempting Greek using my computer but I have to leave home fairly regularly and attempted to carry on with my IPAD so as not to miss too many days. The IPAD uses a slightly different system which I quite like. But it does not have features such as this Discussion section and the information on words and grammar with each section. Is this just my IPAD or I haven't found this stuff or has this information been left out of the course for mobile devices?

Hi Peter234281,

Could you relocate this discussion in the “Troubleshooting" forum? Which is the place meant for such discussion. Thx!

To relocate it (*), edit your original post then select said forum in the drop-down menu on top-left of the edition area (see here for details).

(*) /!\ please, don’t create a new one /!\

Have a look to this short guide to help you knowing where to post your (future) discussions on Duolingo’s forums.


Is this just my IPAD or I haven't found this stuff [...]?

It is not your iPad nor did you miss anything.
The different version/apps of Duolingo (webversion, iOS app, Android app, Windows Phone app, ...) are different one from the other as/and they are developed by different teams among Duolingo's staff.

You can see here a[n unofficial] list of the differences.

or has this information been left out of the course for mobile devices?

Some features are on the webversion but not on apps, some others are on apps but not on the webversion and some are only on one app.

Hi Peter234281, You are right - those features are not in the ipad version. Also the tablet version is easier because it's touchscreen (my macbook is not touchscreen) and also there is a lot of multiple choice which makes it easier. I don't find that to be a good thing actually because I found that I learned less if I could guess. Also on the web version you can cut and paste sentences when you are corrected into a notepad or other doc file for each lesson so you can go over your mistakes and find the patterns, like wrong word order.

Thank you for your comment, Zsuzsi97194. I actually have the same comment to make. The touch screen is easy but it is also easy to guess the answers. I am concentrating on the computer and revise with the iPad when away. Both give a good opportunity to hear Greek spoken and I meet with a group once a week which really helps. But even more vocabulary which is now revolving round and round in my head.
