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!


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

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


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/justo.emilio

Please bring Duolingo to the Windows ecosystem!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Phlip2.0

I concur with this inquiry!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/andre.siqueira

Eu também gostaria de utilizar o Duolingo no Windows Phone 8.

Yeah pretty keen for this Duolingo... Please... like really... I know you're free and all... but pleeeeeeaaaaaaaaassssssssseeeeeeeeeee :D


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jessica.long127

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.


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

Yes, we need Duolingo for Windows Phone 8!


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

People, if you come here and want a WP or Windows RT app, please leave a comment to show support.


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

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

Yayyy! Thanks for the heads up, Mos! :))

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

Please!! i just gave a windows RT tablet to my mom for christmas and i want her to learn english using this fabulous app!. i'm learning german as well! bitte!! Danke!!


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

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.


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. :/


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

please for the windows mobile native app


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

Duolingo app for windows phone 8 please!

Yes I really want to use this app on windows phone


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

Yes, WP8 app would be great!


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

Another one here. Duolingo for win phone 8 would be perfect


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/eclectico69

+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.


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

Offline is the big one.


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

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


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/chuanwei500

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


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PedroRosvi1

Yeah please! Duolingo for windows phones!


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

I second this, please I love duolingo, It's a shame I cant use it in my WP


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

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.


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

Please bring duolingo to our win8 phones.


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

Yes! Window Phone, pleaaase!


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..


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

Having an official WP app will be great


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

please! I need Duolingo on my windows phone :(


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


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

Windows Phone 8.1 apppppppppppppp please


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

When duolingo for WF8.1?


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

+1 for Windows Phone 8.1 and possibly Windows 8.1. Thanks in advance!


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

Yes please, windows phone 8 app


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/lena50427

Yes please!! Windows app!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/poker100

Yes, wp8 app please!


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

+1 for Windows App. The Android solution is great, maybe you can do something as good for Win8?


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

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


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/katybee13

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


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

windows phone app please ! duolingo


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

Windows 8 phone app please! Love duolingo in ie on my laptop, would kill for an app for my windows phone! Thx!


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

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


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 :(


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


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.


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 :)


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.


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

Still waiting for that... I think I will get an Android tablet :/
