Mobile App

Any particular reason that you can't report errors on the mobile versions? I have run into both cases where the translation I gave was correct and you said it was wrong (due to my choosing a different word with the same meaning) and where the audio is terrible and so garbled you can't make out what is being said. Unlike the OS version, you can't report the issues.

I ask this because you have made it fairly clear that you are really pushing the mobile version. So I am surprised that you don't want to hear issues from us on that platform.

And major boo for ditching the hearts. :(

Hi Sarah. It's a confusing state of affairs because I can, on my Samsung Galaxy tablet. Actually that's why I bought this tablet a month ago. I had an old iPad which I wanted to upgrade and Duolingo was the major factor in my decision which type of tablet to buy; my iPad didn't have the error reporting option - and even more importantly - the discussion option. I borrowed a Galaxy from work, installed the Duolingo app, and bingo, it had the discussion and the reporting. But since then I heard that some people with Android devices don't have these extra functions. Confusing... I think none of the Apple devices have it, that's certain. Perhaps they will at the next app upgrade. As for the Androids, some definitely do, like my tablet, others don't, if what I heard is correct. Maybe depends on if it's a tablet or a smartphone. Or maybe it's done on an individual basis, Duolingo is testing out things. If you decide perhaps to buy a new tablet, ask the guys in the store to install the app on it and see if you get the extra features. PS. I already had three corrections accepted, it's a great feeling to receive those emails.

LOL... total geek, I have more devices than I care to count. I usually work on my iphone lately, they actually make the lessons much harder on the ipad or the laptop, I know, odd, but still. I also have an android tablet, so I will test it on there and maybe that will become the device of choice for this app. Companies do need to get their act together, your experience should not change so drastically depending on what device you use. Thanks so much!
