I use the PC for coding, watching videos, and reading tutorials. But everything else I do on the smartphone.

I recommend using the app version from smartphone for completing challenges . Rest you can complete the courses and other codes from P.C ( site version ) . Coding in P.C is easier than smartphone but then you cannot play the challenges and you will miss some other facilities as well . You can also use the app version from any Android emulator ( like Bluestacks ) in PC for enjoying the facilities of challenges and commenting under codes . Actually , I feel very comfortable while using P.C and that is why I downloaded Bluestacks for using the app from P.C :)

David Carroll recently grabbed me by the shirt collar and gave me a list of "DOs and DON'Ts" and one of those was to stop coding on my phone and start using a PC/laptop and keyboard along with VS Code if I was serious about wanting to code. So that is exactly what I started doing and I am very glad that I did. Just by doing that I felt like I jumped to the next level. I was able to learn, practice, and experiment more effectively and code more efficiently. Now when I come back to Sololearn on my phone when I am not on my PC and try to mess with code, it feels so much more clumsy and slow. Edit: Since the OP said "Sololearning" and not "coding", I would have to say that the PC version of Sololearn is quite lacking atm. That said, I can say the same things as some others have said already: Code on a PC but everything else, do on the app. Even the courses can generally be done on a phone if you are just messing around in the "Try It Yourself" section.

Pc is good for coding, smartphone or tablet to do the courses and to use the social side of SoloLearn, pc is not good for this. It is handy to code little bits on mobile, because sometimes you figure things out when you're not home. 😉

Honestly coding is a lot easier on the pc, though smartphone can be equally fun

It is much more difficult to code on a smartphone or tablet. And that is why I think it is the best way to learn. I might be wrong, but I don't think there are many professional programmers out there that can do on a handheld what they can do on a PC. I have been programming only on a tablet for about a year and a half. A few weeks ago I sat down before a PC to program for the first time and it was a lot easier. I wasn't even using fancy tools or editors. Top programmers rely on a lot of tools and libraries. Most of them, and I challenge anybody to prove me wrong, can not program without them. So to conclude: if you can program on mobile you are a very good programmer - better than average 👍

Pc if you have access to one, otherwise I use smart phone for learning on the go, keeping coding to a minimum. Only to practice concepts, if needed.
