Can't find course on Android


(Marialuisa Tiburtini1) #1

Hello, I would like to use Memrise on Android to learn latin.
When I try to add new courses, I am presented only with a list of about 10 languages to choose from (the usual suspects, English, French, Chinese, Italian, Spanish etc…), and I don’t seem to be able to look for anything else.
When I try the search function looking for Latin I get no result. I tried several other searches just to see if it is a latin-specific problem but the only ones that work are related to the languages already listed.

Am I doing something wrong or is memrise for some reason hiding courses other than the basic ones?

Hello. Unfortunately Memrise does hide non-Memrise created courses on the app. You can search for the desired ones in the web version and once you start them there, they show up in the app and you can continue learning on Android. Hope that helps…

This would be helpful, except for the fact that the browser version of the site automatically redirects to the app when I try to view courses, rendering me very unable to browse a wider selection of courses on mobile. If I cannot begin courses in languages not offered by Duolingo, I have very little reason to use memorise. Please change this.

Have you tried to install the Firefox app on your Android device?

Try requesting the “full desktop site” in Firefox, rather then accessing the www.memrise.com website as the “compact mobile view”.

I heard Duolingo users are having the same app redirect problems on IOS / Safari.

That’s odd… I’ve just tried to do that from my phone browser (Chrome) and wasn’t redirected anywhere, I managed to both view and start a new course… Maybe there 's something about your phone settings?
