Streak lost on the mobile version, even though I purchased a Streak Freeze.
Has anyone else lost a streak on their iPhone or Android mobile DuoLingo after missing a day? I purchased Streak Freeze and was maintaining a 78-day streak in Italian, when I missed one day of lessons. Now the Mobile DuoLingo says I'm at 2 days.
What's the point?
There are two different streaks - language streaks and global streaks. Global streaks are saved via Streak Freezes while language streaks are not. As you can see from your flair and on your profile on both the website and the mobile apps, you still have your global streak of 78. Your language streak is displayed in the sidebar in the apps, but you can still access your global streak on your profile.
I am actually experiencing similar to what riflemusket is complaining of, but I believe we may be interpreting it differently. I am only learning French (or to be more accurate, I dabbled in reversing the tree briefly, but decided to focus on learning French for now), and I am only gaining experience points through French. In other words, there is no chance that I have a global-streak versus language-streak issue. I have purchased a streak freeze, but I have never used it (it is still greyed out for purchase in my lingot store). When I go onto the website, it shows that I have a 99-day streak. But when I look on the app, it says that I have a 5-day streak in French. That is untrue. My graph on the website shows that I have more than 20XP for each of the last seven days. I think the count on the app is off.
I am connected to the internet when I am checking on the number of days in my streak (although I sometimes used to try to do lessons offline before that became hopelessly buggy--i.e., never reads aloud the voices for a transcribe this oral sentence prompt). I am running the most recent version of iOS7 and have an iPhone 5S.
Another person with wonky freeze records. I turned Coach off when you removed the ability to save up XPs for busy days. Everything looks OK but the streak counts in the SMS alerts seem to have no rhyme or reason since the update where you made this change. I still don't know why you changed it at all. It was working before just fine.
