A question for other iPhone users: I got the app to update today (it wasn't automatic), but it's very weird on my screen (iPhone 6). The question page doesn't stay one size (it often starts out so big that I only see part of the question). Also, when I hit the green "check" button, I'm told that I have to hit the green check button to check my answer. When I hit the "check" button again, my screen blows up to a bigger size, as well as going to the next question. Anybody else getting strange behaviors like this? I've used the mobile app before for both French and Spanish and had nothing like this happen. Thanks in advance for your info! SO glad Turkish went mobile!!!

When I go on the app store there is no update there. Also, every time I open the app it says the app does not support Turkish for English speakers. I have updated my iPhone to iOS 8.3 and still nothing.

I'm having a similar problem. Yesterday I couldn't find an update, yet got the app working (badly) on my iPhone. This morning, I opened the app and it's back to telling me that Turkish isn't supported yet.

If you double tap, it will zoom in. Personally, the apps are great, however I find them a little glitchy.

I'm also an iOS user and have downloaded the newest (heaviest) version only to find there wasn't Turkish yet. The conclusion is like this : iOS users haven't had Turkish yet. Am I right?

Yes, although Selcen said on reddit/duolingo that iOS users should have it, too. Maybe Selcen & Co. got the news from Duolingo that Turkish will be on the apps and the iOS update just takes a couple of days longer to be released in the app store.

I think mine auto-updated yesterday and I was SO happy! I'm having such a good time with Turkish. I was terrified that it'd be really hard, what with it being an SOV language with no articles and all, but then I realized that my native language Hindi is like that too X)

By the way, Selcen, you and the others on the Turkish team have done a brilliant job on the course, it's just so much fun to learn :D Thank you soooo much. There are virtually no resources for learning Turkish where I live, so having the Duolingo course is like a dream come true :)

OK, I didn't know that. From all the other discussion (here on the forum) of when languages leave beta, it seemed that they wouldn't get pushed to the mobile app until post-beta status.

Selcen, no update shows up on the App store, and after several tries (including removing the app from my phone), Duo finally worked on my mobile. The screen kept changing size (making me scroll back and forth to see the lesson), so it was pretty strange. This morning, I opened the Duo app, and I'm back to seeing that Turkish isn't supported yet on mobiles. Any news on this, please? I've loved using the app for other languages and never had these problems before. Thanks very much!
