Introducing the Duolingo app for Windows Phone!

The wait was long, but the Duolingo Windows Phone app is now available at: https://www.windowsphone.com/s?appid=2d89520e-d360-4b5b-ba5a-5a15064aa935

In keeping with our mission, the app is 100% free, with no ads, hidden fees, or paid “premium” content.

Instead of simply porting our iPhone or Android apps, we worked hard to make a truly native Windows Phone experience -- it’s fast, smooth and feels like Windows Phone :)

Enjoy!

Well, the Big 2 and their little brother all have Duolingo now. No excuses to not download the app and learn a language now! Awesome job, team! My relative just got a Windows Phone and occasionally asks me about Duolingo, so now I can recommend that he try the app. :)

Except the iOS app is missing like half the features of the website, including discussions and reporting, so that's a pretty good reason for me to stick to the desktop version. I'm honestly considering switching to Android because I've heard that the Duolingo app is better there.

It is. haha

The Android app is excellent, that's for sure.

November 25, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/valeiltale

I agree. The desktop version is a lot better. The Android version is ok. The Lumia version misses so many features that I consider to use my old 3" screen Android instead of the much new and bigger Lumia. It's like being trapped. Why there is no the Store in the Lumia Version?

I know many folks (who are Duo users) who switched from iphones to Moto Xs and are very pleased...

I have an Android - unfortunately, you still can't discuss or report :(

November 26, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/niscate

That's not true. I can do both on my SGS2, although I am not able to start a discussion for a given sentence which does not have a discussion already. What's really missing, are the "text lessons", the immersion and a fully functional lingot shop like the dekstop version has it. Also, the mobile app is not able to keep track of your overall streak if you are praciticing two different languages every other day (Monday English, Tuesday French, Wednesday English and so on). Your streak will continue on the desktop version, but not in the app. It only works if you are practicing the same language every day.

Apparently there's a difference between the "Windows Store" and the "Windows Phone Store".. I have a Dell Venue tablet I paid $200 dollars for and it's basically worthless... I finally thought I could use it for something ;_; Please add a Duolingo App to the Windows Store!

December 3, 2014

Hmm . . . I also have a Dell Venue tablet, and I downloaded Duolingo about a year ago through the Google Play store.

    The link he provided is for the US store. I got an error as well, but was then able to go to my region's Windows store (Australia) and download the app. It's still not visible in phone search, you have to use the website link.

    Okay I'm finally on (Nokia Lumia 520) the problem I found was updating to windows 8.1 NEEDS to be done before you can download otherwise it comes up with some weird (your region is not accepted) it takes about 726mb of space to download (but surprising once downloaded it actually made the space it took up (for system) smaller... weird. Anywho it works and I am HAPPY!

    November 21, 2014

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/An_dz

    Once the update is installed it deletes the update installer and some of the new files that were replaced may be smaller (they are optimised, or better compressed). This happens on all systems, on desktop it doesn't because the installers are kept so you can revert them.

    Runs smoothly (well, I'd surprised if not given the HW I run it on) but far from what I would expect based on experience with Android/iOS versions: - forced me to set daily goal; - Shape writing does not work when German keyboard layout is selected (it works for English) - I am learning German from English (not an issue on Android); - no possibility to report issues (sound, solutions, hints,...); - can only be used in vertical position (does not rotate to horizontal position); - does not give lingots when lesson is finished with all 3 hearts.

    I tried downloading the app, but my phone, a Windows ATIV, says I cannot due to not having correct software, not being available in this country, or it is for a different mobile provider. Any idea as to why it wont download to my phone? A quick response would be greatly appreciated!

    November 19, 2014

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Makragic

    Ok. Open http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store/app/duolingo-learn-languages-for-free/2d89520e-d360-4b5b-ba5a-5a15064aa935 with desktop browser. Login with your Microsoft account, click install.

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/michaelahigham

    I had a similar problem, in that my phone would not find the app in the store then would not let me download it - clicking the link above and pressing 'install' from there sent an email to my phone which then contained a link which meant I could activate it. It took a couple of times pressing 'install' to get it to work though, so maybe try again?

    November 19, 2014

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jamesjadams

    Potentially it's a region problem. If you're not in the US, clicking on the links provided above may not work. When you get the error, there should be an option to go to your region's app store.

    The app still isn't searchable on the phone store either, so don't go looking there.

    November 20, 2014

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/tigger2sna

    I looked into it. I have the ATIV SE and there is no news as to whether there actually will be an 8.1 update for it anytime soon (or ever). So I'm just hoping that there might be a version of Duolingo that is compatible with an 8.0 software.

    November 21, 2014

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Medard

    there won't be because it would take too much resources. when they have started building an app they have used windows 8.1 API. That means you need to upgrade your phone or OS :/

    Some people might have issues upgrading from 8.0 to 8.1. It doesn't seem to be part of the updates yet, it only comes with new devices. If you have this issue, you could try installing Developer Preview to get your phone to update to 8.1:

    November 19, 2014

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TheBryce

    This graph explains it all. Blackberry only takes up ~1% of the global market share in the 2Q of 2014 and is expected to decline to about ~0.3% in 2018. It just isn't worth the time for Duolingo. They have more important things to work on.

    The graph can be found here.

    November 20, 2014

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/pont

    Duolingo's stated motivation for introducing the Windows Phone version was that -- while WP's overall market share is tiny, and declining -- it's disproportionately popular in the developing world, where Duolingo want to make an impact. The same isn't true of BlackBerry,

    The good news is that most of the recent BlackBerry models can run Android applications anyway :-).

    November 20, 2014

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ObiJuanKenobii

    Hopefully as time progresses, they will be able to create apps for many more devices, including BlackBerry! It's time-consuming to create a whole new different version of Duolingo to match a device's settings and layout. We may hopefully see in the near future!

    November 26, 2014

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mr00

    Hi Fernando, I believe duolingo is not exactly about speaking, but rather understanding - you don't 'speak' unless you constantly use spoken language in communication. ;)

    If you wanna know: I'm Polish so this is my native, I speak English and Spanish fairly well (use them on a daily basis), and currently developing in French and German. Lvls 2nd in Dutch and Swedish don't really allow me to even say that I can read anything in those. :)

    Good luck with your progress! Regards Kamil

    I am so grateful for this! I was considering a Windows phone when I upgrade in December, but didn't want to switch from my Android simply because I use my Duolingo app every day and wasn't sure I could get the app on the new phone. Now I have the freedom to choose. Has anyone done a comparison between the Android app and the Windows app? Any major differences that I need to know about before making the switch?

    November 27, 2014

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TheFlyingman

    As far as I can tell - WP version does not support voice speaking exercises. I do currently have no access to working Android phone for comparisson.

    November 27, 2014

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/2prices

    Thanks! Good to know!

    December 3, 2014

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mr00

    In WP app you currently can't report a problem with a wrong translation, nor see the discussion around the sentence. I believe it's gonna be added in nearest future.

    November 28, 2014

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mr00

    You may be interested: I found another difference, or rather a glitch: When you run WP app and disable listening exercises there (I do it 'cause I use it mostly while commuting to work without headphones), the listening is going to get disabled also on the web. Pretty annoying, as it makes also the 'translate' exercises on web quiet (unless you hit ctrl+space for each one).

    That certainly seems like a bug so I hope it's gonna be fixed pretty soon.

    December 1, 2014

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/2prices

    Thank you for the info! Definitely something I would like to see fixed before making the switch.

    En consonancia con nuestra misión, la aplicación es 100% gratis, sin anuncios, cargos ocultos o contenidos de pago "premium".

    Sound great! I've been using the android app alongside Mango on my Blackberry Q10 and it's worked great. I have no complaints for the lack of native Blackberry apps, but would ask if you could port your windows mobile version over to tablets as well. I use my phone all the time when I'm on the go but when I stay a while I'll pull out my HP Envy X2 Windows 8 tablet, and though the web interface works fine it would be nice to have a native app for my tablet too. Thanks for branching out though, I really have found duolingo to be a great app in my language learning arsenal.

I have been going through the comments to see if anyone has been having my problem with the app though. Most often, like 9 out of the 10 times I try to open the app... it just doesn't. I have re-installed, re-started and re-done everything I could think of. The problem persists. I am using Lumia 520, with Windows 8.1. Any thoughts on what could be going wrong?
