This new look in the app... I mean, honestly, it's horrible right? It's not just ugly, I think I could have got used to that. Or maybe not because I did one lesson and then stopped because I couldn't stand it. I really liked the old look: while simple it had a certain charm about it.

But also, it's less clear, less pedagogic. The buttons are much smaller, the information presented in a less obvious way. I made a lot of unnecessary mistakes because of this.

Please change it back! Or it's likely I won't use the app any more.

I think the last sentence really scared them.

IOS?
Does this also apply to Android?

Try the Android app or do a version downgrade; at least you can manually install an APK file (archive website) from a local source on an Android device.

If only I could go into my computer settings and have the Duolingo from around 2014 but with all these new languages.

Bring back the green! Bring back the lesson notes on the side instead of throwing me straight into the lesson! Bring back trees being visible on accounts so we don't have to use ugly third party sites! Let me leave nice comments on people's walls! Find a way to keep those in the classroom version slightly cut off from the social aspect or more supervised by that teacher and keep that part free! Make a "lesson" on the rules necessary to enter the "discussion" page so nobody has an excuse! Honestly, we need a suggestion jar, because this site keeps flying off further and further in the wrong directions.

I also found the smaller buttons causes one to make more typo errors than grammar errors.
