word bank or writing - only word bank now ?

so I hadn't updated my app in a while, but I did it two days ago, and one of my options has disappeared ? whenever I had to translate something into Japanese, it used to give me a choice: word bank or writing it from 'nothing'. now, however (since the update), it only gives me the word bank... I'm really sad, cause I felt like writing it 'without help' really helped me learn more quickly !

so does anyone knows something about it ? has it disappeared because they're reworking the tree ? will the option to write come back ? and if not, why ?

I feel like I get just the word bank when I'm starting out on a skill and the keyboard shows up when I've gotten further into the skill.

I can't recommend anyone use the app when the mobile version of the site is the same thing, just better in every way. I never deal with word banks on my phone when I do it this way.

The app basically works by giving you the word bank with lower level skills and the text box with higher level skills. (Or rather it's supposed to, it has always seemed inconsistent to me). I would strongly recommend either using Duolingo on desktop or using the mobile website instead of the app since it gives you the choice between word bank and text box.
