Windows Phone 8 & Windows RT App

Hi! Duolingo,

Will there be an application for "Windows Phone 8" & "Windows RT" because its easier to learn when things are handier than a laptop... Now Microsoft has made it much easier for developers to make one Universal app which would work across all form factors from Windows Phone to Tablet to Laptop to Desktop..

If there will be any app.. Then when we can expect it ....? Pls. Kindly make an app for Windows platform, a humble request from many of us.

Me too for WP8 please! Or, as another user had put it, "at least [a] mobile optimized web[site] (HTML5)". Thank you!

I second that! Duolingo on WP8/W8 would be brilliant.

Sorry guys; they did an AMA on reddit a few months ago and this exact question was asked. They said they had no current plans to develop an app for Windows, I believe. Their reasons were that they're focused on making the app in general much better before trying to branch out to other platforms.

Yes, we need Duolingo for Windows Phone 8!

Actually, you can use the duolingo website in IE. I've been doing this on my Windows 8 tablet. I would rather have a native app, but until they release one, it works.

January 3, 2014

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

The sooner the better!! I would love to be able to use Duolingo on my Windows Phone instead of on an iPod with a tiny screen. :/

+1 for WP8 and W8 apps. The IE site is prettey neat, it even has different features than ipad/iphone apps, but I would like to have offline functionality.

January 3, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Lloydo3000

Offline is the big one.

January 3, 2014

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

Wow, it will be great if duolingo will be on every platform! I like WP8!

Please make a application for Windows ecosystem! Windows 8 has a 11% marketshare worldwide (desktop OS) and WP8 has 12% in the Europe&Latin America (mobile OS), and this % will be increasing.

February 4, 2014

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

Please bring duolingo to our win8 phones.

February 11, 2014

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

i don't understand why everybody is worried that there is no app for duolingo in wp. You can access the website and pin the duolingo home to start screen and it serves as good as the app...i am learning like that...and i don't feel any difficulty..

March 11, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/a.j.16

Having an official WP app will be great

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

Dear duolingo team, i also would really appreciate it if you launched an app for windows phone. I think there are a lot of users, who are waiting for this app on wp, cause using duolingo as an app, will add a lot more features to the experience. Thanks a lot

July 27, 2014

I too would very much like to see a Duolingo WP app soon.

I'd love one for windows 7. It'd be nice to be able to practice offline (I know the lessons are limited).

when will the windows version duolingo be released? I've expected for a long time

October 27, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Rising-Mos

Unfortunately, we do not have information that it is even being worked on, let alone a release date :(

October 28, 2014

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

it's really a bad news. I have expected it for a log time. I don't have an android or ios handset, the only way to use duolingo is the IE browser

November 2, 2014

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

good news for wpers. You can visit the flollowing website. http://recode.net/2014/10/27/duolingo-founder-personalized-adaptive-education-is-more-efficient/ I quote this from the website "The company is about to launch a Windows Phone app. Von Ahn joked that while it might not sound like a big deal to the audience at Code/Mobile, it is a huge deal for Duolingo users in developing countries where Windows Phone is the second-biggest platform behind Android." The only thing we can do is to wait.

November 2, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/klt4d

Well, the phone version is already something, but I would still love to have a RT version to be able to learn on a little more handy device! Hopefully will follow :)

November 2, 2014

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

although I don't have a windows tablet but my pc's os is win8.1, if there's a phone version, it would be expectable that the RT version is on the way.
