Lessons offline not updating

I've seen this bug a few times now - lessons completed offline do not fully update (duolingo usually forgets the last one or two lessons completed) when I get back online

November 13, 2014



I've posted about this bug so many times in the troubleshooting forum, and no developer or duolingo staff have ever replied. It is so frustrating to get back online and watch the completed skill regress.


This is my single biggest gripe with duolingo. All the progress I make during my subway commute disappears with no updates. I am so turned off by this I might abandon it alltogether


I've actually watched this happen - finished a lesson as I was reconnecting and it promptly forgot that I had done that lesson!


I almost always do lessons on my iPad/iPhone and if i then go to the web site to check that I have had my XP updated it is invariably has not updated them BUT if I log off and back on again OR refresh the home page, they have always appeared.


It isn't an issue unless my iPhone was offline when I did the lessons (eg in the subway or on a plane)


Ugh, this can happen even if your connection is spotty ...


Well it seems like if the lesson is completed (as in the last question or something like that) while online the result is saved ...


Yesterday I regretted hitting the continue button after completing the last question in a less right as I was walking into a tunnel that connected my train platform to the the station. I had no connectivity for 30 seconds and that happened to be just the wrong time to complete the lesson -- today I see I need to redo it. I try to be careful of this when I go into an elevator as well. It's frustrating...
