Do you prefer the LingQ Website or the App?
As a Newcomer I prefer the Website. Just downloaded the App but I had some difficulties getting used to it. So I'll use the Website until I get to know LingQ better:)
I'm only using Lingq at the moment to read books. I put anything I can get the DRM off of into Lingq and read it on the website. I watch movies and tv shows on the internet for my listening practice, but I hate reading without my obliging assistant Lingq. I no longer review the words any more as I finally got Steve K's point that it's best to review them by encountering them over and over as I read.
For Korean as a beginner, definitely the website. This is partly because the text-to-speech is much better on macOS than on iOS/Android, but also because I can reference the translations more easily than with the app. I can also look things up on Google more quickly and efficiently when I need better explanation or meanings.
For reading as opposed to studying, iOS/Android app hands down.
I prefer the website for the initial lingqing as thr dictionaries work better and its faster with that shortcuts. I aslso Use it for importing from Netflix and sorting lessons etc.
when I sit down to do thr actual reading, I use thr iPad because you can now create new lingqs using thr app (before you could not), you can make more Detailed overlapping lingqs and it’s more comfortable Physically in a nice chair away from thr computer.
using mostly the website , wanna start using the app more for just reviewing lingqs , probably should review more ;) but i enjoy working through a new text more.. and just started using the importer app
which i enjoy ;) so usually i have a second tab open with the video i watch...
i also do write words and phrases by hand while doing this , overall does feel way more engaged
and with the app i play around when there is some time to kill ;)
overall i`m glad lingq covers both options but yes i prefer the website
I prefer using the website on my computer because it allows me to use my mouse and keyboard instead of having to tap a screen with my fingers(less tiring for my hands). I do however find the app to have a cleaner design and I prefer the way it displays overlapping lingq phrases. Ideally, you would be able to pair a bluetooth keyboard and mouse with the ipad app to get the best of both worlds. With the latest ipad OS you can now use a mouse with the ipad but when I’ve tried it with my mouse it isn’t able to distinguish between wanting to highlight text and create a lingq.....pity.
I prefer the LingQ website !
im big on the website too for reading. it is much easier to use in my opinion. I don't mind paragraph mode on mobile, but larger content (1k words plus) seem more intimidating on mobile for some reason. for listening, 80% is on mobile though.
I actually found the mobile app less intimidating with large texts. Something to do with using a smaller screen made me find it easier to nibble away at larger content.
That's funny, and I like that way of looking at it. I think I use the desktop version so much because I like being able to see the bar lines of how far you are in a lesson. The mobile version (especially in sentence mode) is indistinguishable. as far as actual readability though mobile is great. I just like a bar
I've grown to like the bar too.
I use the app occasionally, but I prefer the Website! :)
