Duolingo, the fun language-learning app for iPhone and iPad, beautifully redesigned for iOS 7

Duolingo for iPhone and iPad joined the collection of apps designed with iOS 7 in mind today with the release of Duolingo 3.

Duolingo is a free iOS app that makes learning a second language like Spanish or French easy and fun, and its redesign for iOS 7 is certainly delightful.

You can find Duolingo for free on the App Store.
