What's New in Version 5.1.3
Bug fixes and performance improvements.
I get it but give us another way!
Update: After getting the most recent update, I realized that you know what to charge us 10$ per month to get basically access to more than one lesson per day (unless you're the smartest person on earth). This is not cool guys. Heck I'll pay 5 or 10 dollars period! To get this permanently but no way per month. I can get a Netflix subscription for that! The fact that you added that was because you heard the outcry over this. But this is even worse!
Ok guys I get it, you need to make money, but this isn't the way. When you added the ads I understood, y'all needed to make some money. But the health bar NEEDS to go! And if you can't do that, you need to give us the option to pay (to support you) and get that option out of here! It makes learning languages impossible now. You guys used to be great, you were one of the, if not the BEST app on the App Store! Now I can't even touch this app! I understand that you guys need to make money, but this ISNT IT! Please, here the communities cries and stop this madness I wish y'all the best of luck in finding a way to make money and I hope y'all stay true to the mission of Duolingo, "the best place to learn a language!"
Great supplemental learning tool
This app will most likely never get you to true fluency but it makes learning new languages addictive! It gives you a real sense of accomplishment and you can quickly feel like you're actually learning. I don't use many language learning apps so this is not in comparison to others. If you want to learn another language then you will have to work hard. On the lazy days when you want to do some learning but you want to mix it up a bit, this app is great. Hence me calling it "supplemental".
I took one star off because the voice recognition is poor at its best. I'm sure they'll improve it as time goes on but for now, it's pretty useless. I have spoken to it in the wrong language, I have said completely wrong sentences, and I even just made throats clearing sounds, and all of them were accepted. Other than that though this app is definitely worth it! One of the parts is that the ads are not intrusive at all; by far the least annoying "free" app I've ever used (with regards to the ads)
Wonderful app ruined by the newest update
Originally, I would give this app 5 stars. It's the perfect way to practice and learn a language. However the new update introduced "health" like other games, meaning there's a limited number of times you can practice a subject before you have to either wait an hour or buy more health. It ruined the experience of practicing whenever you have a spare moment for as long as you want, and I'm very disappointed in the update, as are many others. Instead of focusing on creating more tools to learn, or improving the language lessons, they decided instead to focus on finding new pointless ways to try and monetize the app. If they don't remove the new "health" feature at the very least, I may have to find a new language learning app like Memrise, which is disappointing- I've been using Duolingo since its creation.
