Mobile site no longer allows Correct/Incorrect ribbon to be moved after submitting answer

As of today when I do lessons in the mobile site on my phone, I can no longer move the Correct/Incorrect ribbon out of the way with my fingers when I want to see my answers after submitting. This change is a complete flaw, just like the loss of the number of comments in discussions icon on the apps that appears on the ribbon when you submit answers. Why did you take away a useful feature and making the user experience worse?

I don't know who approved of this change, but please allow the ribbons to be movable again like in the past so people can see their answers whether right or wrong.

NOTE: In the above screenshots the ribbon covers the answers completely, and the ribbon cannot be moved. I would provide more screenshots if I have to.

Please also upvote this existing post about the issue https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/31808634 Yes it's very irritating. Often I need to check to see if I misread the question. This very much feels like a bug not something deliberate.

I'm accessing Duo on my Android phone through G-Mail. About 2 weeks ago the Correct/Incorrect ribbon stopped working. I thought this might be the place to report the problem but maybe not. I'll try the link posted earlier.

At least Discussions is not the best place to report problems. Try this also: https://support.duolingo.com/hc/en-us/articles/204728264-How-do-I-report-a-bug-

Did that two weeks ago, still no fix as of yesterday. I stopped using Duolingo and am using Rosetta Stone and supplementing with Clozemaster now (still getting emails about this thread).

Thanks! I reported this too, on the link dogmolo posted below, here, on Facebook, and on their wonderful survey that they want everyone to fill out. Since they never respond I don't even know if it's a glitch or if they did it on purpose (even though it's terrible). I already hated the app (finally deleted it yesterday), but hoped to use the online version because I was pretty far along and had genuinely enjoyed it (200 day French streak). Now I'm buying Rosetta Stone instead.

There's still the desktop web version - I'm using that

The problem being, I loved being able to sneak in a lesson or two when I had an extra ten minutes during lunch, before bed, etc. Not at a desktop at those times. So it significantly limits the usability of the product -- it's "on all platforms" but really only usable on one.
