Yes, I think the on-screen keyboard provided should match the layout of a real Russian keyboard. I find it very confusing when the letters are in a totally different place compared to the keyboard on my mobile phone, for example. It takes me twice as long to complete a deck of 50 cards in Russian compared to when I did the French course, and that's because I'm forever searching for the letters. Looking at the same standardised format on all apps/websites would really help me to get faster.
Sorry for the late reply. This topic was somehow lost among the other suggestions and comments. But it is a very valid question. We chose the phonetic keyboard layout because we thought it would be easier for learners as they don't have to memorize a new keyboard layout then.
I'm sorry that we made things harder for you. We will discuss this issue and see what we can do :)
Happy learning with Lingvist!
