Duolingo is available as an iOS app[1] in addition to its website and other mobile apps.


The iOS app is simplified compared to the website, and therefore does not include discussions (either in the forums or sentence-specific), full profile views, or timed practice. In addition, not all language courses are available.

Unlike the Android app and the web, as of May 2019 the iOS app uses the "Health system" or "Heart system" for lessons rather than letting students make as many mistakes as they need.

The iOS app was the first platform to include the Coach feature.[2]

iOS-specific features[]

Duels was a feature that allowed users to compete with each other or with a computer completing exercises in real time. The feature has been unavailable since version 4.0.5.
