Since we first launched a LingQ app for iOS way back in 2010, it’s been a very popular add-on to our web functionality. The new LingQ 4.0 app for iOS has now taken the app to another level. Like the previous app, LingQ 4.0 has been designed for both iPhone and iPad, and let’s you learn languages the LingQ way wherever you are. The difference is now, in LingQ 4.0, you really don’t need to come to the web app at all for any of the core LingQ functionality.
You’ll notice a completely new design and the new paged interface to match the look and feel of the new web interface. You can access your Feed or search the Library to find new content to study. You can add lessons to your Playlist, which is now synced across devices and to the web, so you can listen to your lessons conveniently.
New features include the ability to see and LingQ Related Phrases, phrases that other members have previously LingQ’d, and the ability to tap on both blue and yellow words within LingQ’d phrases. Just tap a word within a phrase to see it’s blue or yellow widget. You can also now see your stats widget, follow your progress towards your targets, manually update your statistics if necessary and see your avatar.
Regarding the Reader, you’ll be happy to know that your lesson location and progress is now synced between the web and mobile apps so no matter where you are and what device you are using, you can pick up your lesson where you left off without missing a beat. Also, vocabulary review activities now include all four integrated activities just like the new web version - flashcards, cloze tests, multiple choice and dictation. You can now access all your LingQs on the app in the new Vocabulary section. Not even available on the web yet, the new Vocabulary section allows you to filter lists of LingQs to review using the new activities.
Last but not least you can keep track of your current learning streak, the number of days you in a row you have met your LingQs target, and you can see how many avatar coins you are earning as you create LingQs and move words to Known.
