Irish on iOS and Android!
As some of you have already noticed, the Irish is now on the iOS and Android apps! You can download the update for free and enjoy Irish on the go!
(On a slightly unrelated note, we'd also like to mention the fact that our previous mentor, mukkapazza, has left Duolingo :'( She did amazing work with us and she contributed a huge amount to the Italian <-> English courses. Good luck with everything, Monica! We now welcome Ker to our team (you may know her from the Portuguese <-> English courses)! We look forward to working with her xD)
Hooray! Can't wait to dive in. By the way, has anyone found a good way to type in Irish on iOS? I don't mean just the fadas; that's clear in any keyboard layout: press and hold on the vowel. Apple still doesn't seem to offer an Irish keyboard option, so has anyone found another solution? At the moment, I use the Hungarian keyboard to type in Irish, but the autocorrect is still annoying. I wonder if a third-party keyboard layout is in the works?
Do you mean typing Irish outside of the Duolingo app? For that I have no suggestions. I know android has a bunch of custom keyboards (I use SwiftKey on my tablet) that can have multiple language auto-correction dictionaries.
In the app when I'm told to type in Irish it turns off autocorrect. I either hold down for the fada or just leave it out and get a warning but don't lose hearts.
