How does it works if people want to work on the code, creating new things for LWT and want to share them ?

.... I could say a lot about the unfair business model of lingq. I only point one : they want
to be paid for their job but people
have to work for them for free.


I don't share your opinion.

I think that LingQ is a good system. It is simple to use and it works and brings good
results. I used it one/two years ago for quite a while, and I've learned a lot. I had some ideas to improve the
system, but they were not implemented. So I started with LWT - for my personal learning.

Many (young) people don't have an income, and many people come from countries where 10 US$ per month are
much money. They cannot afford
LingQ. These people should - IMHO - also have the possibility to study a foreign language, with a FREE
application.

That's the main reason why I have published LWT.

IMHO now that LWT exist - lingq should stop to exist or become entirely free. There is nothing offered by lingq that is not offered elsewhere for free. And if some services are better in a commercial relations - they do not need a third party like lingq.

The only reason for lingq to still exist is because people know them but do not know LWT - because they have a marketing plan. Other reasons could be some people are in love with Steve Kaufmann and others think he is god.

The only good reason is they do not read English.

Thank you for the links about git.

It looks quite complex. I am not sure to have skill and time to work on your code and to learn git system. I am not sure to understand and to trust such a merging system.

@michel How about the lack of portability of LWT? Can i bring my ipad somewhere and use it? Is there an
app i can use for my iphone? It seems to me that you are tied to your computer, although I have not tried it
yet. How can you use it away from the computer?

Yeah, that's a kind of drawback. While it looks promising (LingQ functionality but for free, better flashcard options etc.) I haven't yet installed the beast for that very reason. Even though I'm mostly at my own computer, I want the possibility to skim through a text wherever I am.

You can install it at a webhoster, explained here: http://lwt.sourceforge.net/#installhoster

Then you can use it all over the world.

It runs quite nice on an iPad, and it even plays audios on iPad etc. The texts should be short if you use it on mobile
devices , otherwise scrolling can be tedious.
