Duolingo review

It really is a great app. It has helped me a lot with learning Spanish, although I'm not 100% fluent yet, I hope I can also learn many more languages with this app too. Of course I am a fan of this app, although it has some bugs. Although it only has one bug, I have been reporting it, and eventually I'm sure they will get to it, but it's probably going to mess with me learning Spanish for a while. Even though there is only one bug the app is super recommendable.

Thank you for your time and I hope you consider using this free app 'cause it's really a great, easy, and fun way to learn a different language.

Please help

I would have given this app 4 and half stars but it won't let me give the half. So just starting today I did my French went over to my Italian lessons and when I finished my Italian lessons I tried to go back to French and it would show the loading the screen then a black screen and it would kick me out of the app. I've turned my phone on and off, cleared my cache, and I updated the app and it still won't go to French. Can y'all please fix it? Thank y'all so much for reading this and if y'all fix it thank y'all so much for fixing it!!

Greedy greedy greedy developer

$10/month and there are still micro transactions to regain health.

I totally get that developing and maintaining the app cost real money, and I am ok with subscriptions or micro transactions.....but not both.

Also there seem to be two completely different versions of this app out there.

I have the app on my phone and the in app currency is lingots (there are no micro transactions or health bars to worry about)

My partner has the app on his phone and his in app currency is gems (which cost real world money) and he has a health bar that is reduced by each mistake he makes. After 5 mistakes he must wait for the health bar to replenish or use gems ($$$) to refill it.

Both of us are subscribed to Duolingo Plus ($10/month)

Both of us are using the most recent version of the app from the AppStore.

I really like the version of the app that does not use micro transactions, and would be very happy to continue paying $10/month for it, but if this is the direction the developer is taking the app I will cancel the subscription and delete the app.
