  5. Android application?

Android application?

I noticed there is already an iPhone phone application for this website, but will there be an Android application soon, it's good to learn on your free time like on the bus or the train.

Yes, there will be a app.

What he said. We are looking for a good Android coder though: http://duolingo.com/#/jobs

I found you guys on reddit :) Have you tried seeking developers on r/android?


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

Have you considered open source?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Skye07

So development of the app hasn't started yet? That's a bummer. How long did the iPhone app development take? At least we can get a sense of how long we'd still have to wait for an Android app.


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

I'm a Senior at Computer Science, Android app development doesn't take that long to do as long as you have the design (which i'm thinking they already do cause it's the same as iPhone's app) and also iOS development and Android development are pretty pretty much similar, they just need to take the decision, I would do it for them if I didn't have final exams theses days and also i'm busy learning German :P


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

I disagree. And I think trying to mimic iOS on android is the wrong approach, it would be like writing an application for OSX and jumping through all kinds of unnecessary hoops to make it look exactly like the windows app. If Android users wanted an iOS app, they wouldn't be Android users ;) You want to write the application native to the platform for the best results and usability.

I've been a pro software engineer for 17 years. I just wish life was as easy as you say. :-)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mkbu95

Oh I was going to post the same thing, I'd like very much if they do an android app :-)


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

i'm waiting for this too!!!


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

I would love an android app too!!!!


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

Look forward for the app launch


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

They have stated before that they are working on it. Sadly they gave no indication of a release date.

In case you missed the memo, we now have an Android app. :-D


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

I will definitely love it if I have it on my phone! please let us have it! :P


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/nimbus77

An android app would be awesome. But it would make more sense to first make a smartphone friendly version of Duolingo.


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

what about windows phone app ?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/fredz0003

4% of market share, would you be willing to spend your money with those numbers?


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

i too need it, so badly :(


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/a85

Please please please! An Android app!

Android FTW!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/awb8

It would be great to have


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

I would love an Android app.


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

Yes please DO release an Android app :)!


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

This isn't the first thread asking for this but since it has been brought up again, I too would love this feature. I can use Chrome browser on a Nexus 7 tablet but need to pinch to zoom in/out constantly to get the text, buttons in correct or useable location. A dedicated app would be so much better. If only I'd taken Computer Science 101 back in the day, I'd gladly help out in development!


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

this would be really handy!!


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

Not everyone can afford an Iphone or an over-priced apple product. Pleeeeze make an app for the droid in us too! I'd do it myself but I don't have thumbs...:)


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

An Android app would be very beneficial for my crazy schedule! I hope you find a dev soon!


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

I want a Windows 8 Metro app. Oh whatever, I'll just keep using the web.


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

I think it would be wonderful. I'm learning German on my iPod, and my father saw. I knew how he had been struggly with wanting to learn Spanish (being able to find no fun way to learn, he gave up.) I decided I would get Duolingo on his Android and show him--only to be dissapointed that there was no app. Patiently waiting for one, Mels


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

Android application would be a dream come true. Not to mention it's the biggest and fastest growing mobile OS environment, so I guess it's a must. But please hurry!!!


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

My husband says he just got an update on the iPad app that will let him work offline in duo into and we are still waiting for a Droid app! Please......


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

(Within a year after launching its Android app, nearly half of all Instagram's user base comes from the Google-powered operating system.) = over 100 MILLION users
Duolingo are you getting the picture? You have been delaying for over 3 years. Without Android where is your growth going to come from? Knock Knock... are you listening yet?


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

It is due in May.


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

YIPPEE.... Android app is there!


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

Por favor seria fantastico, no?


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

Any chance this will be available for the blackberry smartphone?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/fredz0003

Seriously, BB market share is below 8%, it will be a waste of time.


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

An android app would be nice. It's annoying that android's version of flash doesn't implement the microphone class. Whenever I try to record something, duolingo says it can't hear me or can't understand me. The site works great otherwise; I just did a lesson during a quiet moment at work.


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

I too would like an Android app. Would also like to be able to use it on NOOK. Thanks. duolingo is really helpful.


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

I'm looking forward to android app, too~!


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

Really need the android app to this. Why does iPhone always get everything first?


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

+1, Please add for android. And if you have any idea when it would be available, let us know. Great product!


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

Count me in. I spend many hours a week away from my desktop. I do not leave home without my Tablet.


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

Would love to have an Android App!! :))))


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/stefanos999

No Android app yet? That is unacceptable.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mrs2013

Yes, I am telling everybody about this great learning tool, but it is not available on all phones.
