The app has been mostly fantastic. However, the new design overhaul is horrendous so far. It's very clearly not finished, with some buttons on the track just doing nothing, and the message tooltips on others staying stuck on the screen occasionally. Past that, it's a huge change from the previous layout, and finding old lessons again is a pain. Overall, it feels like a huge downgrade, and it either needs to be improved or reverted to the previous version.

This has helped me a lot with speaking Spanish and the new format is pretty cool. However, before, I could follow people and there was a cool feature; friends quests. I loved that! However, once my Duolingo changed, so did the friends option completely. I know people who have had their format change, but they still have friends and the quests. Why don't I!? Please fix this. Also leaderboards are gone and all but one of the achievements. The speed challenges. It's more difficult to get it now.

New interface is atrocious. Everything was smooth, and easy to understand. Now everything is stretched out too much, and nothing is labeled. They also reduced lesson "experience" across the board in their ranked system to encourage people to buy their "Super" option (do not, it is not worth it). Probably going to switch to another place to learn if this change is not reverted. It really is impossible to navigate now, and not a user friendly update.
