Back in May I posted about how I was extremely excited to have had my Duolingo account enabled. Duolingo is a great language learning tool that teaches you for free while you translate language specific pages on the web as a by-product of your learning
I’m sorry to have to report that after the initial excitement wore off, the difficulty of having to log into a PC won out over the greatness of the app itself and my Spanish learning halted.
So you imagine how excited I am that Duolingo have just released an iPhone app! I was, in fact, so excited that I was slightly wary of first opening the app, worried that I’d be disappointed. So many sites rush out a mobile app that is vastly inferior to the website version. I needn’t have worried as the Duolingo iPhone app is in fact better than the web version with new exercises specifically designed to be easy to use on a mobile.
No more excuses, although it will probably still be another few months until I’m good enough to post in Spanish….
Duolingo are working on an Android app, due out in 2013.
