Phone vs Desktop

Does anyone know why I am able to skip levels on the desktop version of Duolingo but not on the phone version? Is there anyway to fix this? Please let me know. Thanks

  • The iOS App has only shortcuts in skills in "crown level" 0
  • The Android App and " in the browser of your phone, tablet or PC" have shortcuts in "crown level" 0-4.

Probably, Duolingo's staff is more interested in metrics, than in complaints in discussions.

The more iOS users are switching to in the browser of their iOS device, the greater the chance they will fix issues in the iOS App.

For the best typing experience:

  • set the browser to mobile mode
  • use the phone in portrait mode

and also enjoy .....

  • the grammar "Tips and notes" in some of the skills
    (tap the "lightbulb" button in the "lessons" pop-up)

  • the very useful Sentence discussions
    The Android App also has the sentence discussions)

Yes very annoying, we are wasting precious time at below level of learning.
