Word bank vs keyboard

Is it me or has the option to switch from answering with the word bank to answering with the keyboard instead disappeared? I liked the option not to use the word bank.

Anyone else?

Btw, I am using the app on an iPhone.

Never saw it on the Android app; still there on the web version.

I like the word bank at the lower crown levels when I don't really know the material. However, I like using the keyboard in the higher crown levels when I really should start to know the material.

I agree with you! On level 4 I want to be using the keyboard only because the word bank is too easy and doesn’t help reinforce the learning as much. Plus it is slower than using the keyboard.

I can use the keyboard on my Chromebook. I don't know about your iPhone.

Hi, this is the Spanish forum, for getting help with Spanish 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 "Spanish" to "Troubleshooting"? That way it won't clutter up the Spanish forum, and the answers you get might help others who look in Troubleshooting for information on how Duolingo works.

Done and apologies! I could not find the option on my phone to put it in troubleshooting when I originally posted. Hopefully it is in the right place now...

Yeah. It shows it on the mobile version but I don't know about the mobile version.
