Am I the only one that notices vast differences between the desktop and mobile versions of Duolingo?

I find that the two platforms dont have the same UX/UI (User Experience/User Interaction) and its a bit frustrating.

-The number of questions is different on lessons on mobile (often fewer) than on desktop. -I can't view my XP on mobile but I can on desktop. -This is really only for design but the graph chart for XP progress is only available on desktop. -Etc.

Some things are more minor than others but it just seems like the development teams for the two platforms have never been in the same room before.

Anyone feel the same?

Yes, that's normal in Duolingo.


"Cross Platform Standardization"

While I absolutely adore the quality content that is offered (all for free!) I can’t help but notice discrepancies across the various Duolingo platforms

You are paying for Duolingo ......


If anyone else has experienced this or knows if more standardization is coming across all platforms I would love to hear from you!

Yes, I found it interesting to read that Duo uses Amazon AI for deep learning....! Confirms how we're being taught to be "good consumers"​,...good "thinkers"...... At least, I m happy when all the research on how to brainwash us is put to good use by allowing me to learn languages, as aware of the tricks as I (think) I am...☺
