I have been on a 100+ day streak doing the bare minimum as I know if you binge they punish you with hearts.
Today I find they have removed my gems and replaced with hearts.
Not impressed and thinking about removing the app altogether. I'm not using it enough to justify paying a monthly fee especially given the current climate.
Dirty tricks Duolingo. You advertise daily that it's free and yet I'm being pressured into paying.
Can you try opening up the browser version of Duolingo on your phone? My desktop version uses lingots and has no heart system holding me back. It looks like you have put a lot of time into the Scottish Gaelic course, especially, so I hope things work out for you so you can still study here with us, your fellow Duolingo learners.
