Humankind's last mystery resolved: the correct use of der, die, das articles in German grammar! A fun, hand-drawn app that makes you a pro in no time! Your favourite Der, Die, Das app - promised.

DIE APP (or das App - both are correct :))
Learn 40 secret rules that even your German teacher doesn't know about. We created the 'Zoo of Rules' - where walking across the zoo, you will find hand-drawn images and rules.
Tiger rule: Did you know that 70% of nouns ending in -er are masculine - meet the tiger rule! All colours are neuter and most fruits are feminine - and a lot more!

A FUN DER DIE DAS GAME - Deutsch lernen macht Spaß!
Play across beautiful hand-drawn scenery visiting the most iconic places across Germany, Austria and Switzerland:
- Brandenburg gate in Berlin
- The Baltic Sea (Ostee) in Germany
- The Belvedere Castle in Vienna
- Neuschwannstein Castle in Bavaria
- Swiss Alps (Matterhorn)

I am Norbert, and even as a half-German, I struggled with der, die, das. As my daughter was born and I started to talk in German with her, I wanted to make sure, she hears the right articles from early on.
Grammar books are not much help, and even if you find some rules, they are incomplete, dry and hard to remember so the idea of the best ever Der, Die, Das app was born."

"Liebes Team vom derdiedasapp!

Vielen Dank für dieses APP oder diese APP,
nein diesen APP. Wahnsinn, wie kompliziert der Artikel sein kann!

So etwas cooles und hilfreiches wie dieses APP habe ich noch nie gesehen.
Ich lebe zwar sehr lange in Österreich, spreche relative gut Deutsch
aber mit dem Artikel habe ich meine liebe Mühe.

Ich habe das App sofort upgraded, weil ich endlich etwas innovatives gefunden
habe! Das APP motiviert mich, den Artikel neu zu lernen.
Zusätzlich macht das APP die Wiederholung einfach!


Ah yes, we also corrected an endless level bug.

$3 for a good drilling tool

Genders in German is one of the hard things that you just need to drill to get good at, so having a simple game like this that lets you do that in short bursts, and explaining WHY each word is what gender, is pretty great.

The only improvement would be to add audio too, even if it’s just a robotic voice generator. Those sound bits get stuck in your head like music does, which can help you memorize words and their attached articles better. I hope the developer adds that at some time.

But despite that one thing, for the one time price of $3 this app is deserving of 5 stars. I highly recommend it to any German learners. The free version is also good for the price, so you might as well try it out.

Hey there,
Thank you very much! I really appreciate that you took the time to review the app - made my day!

Well noted for the audio - will see how it can be integrated!

Enjoy der die das!

Beautiful and more engaging than most!

I am appreciating this game and it was worth $3 for the adless version! A couple suggestions:
• The new noun appears as a layer underneath the Der-Die-Das buttons, and has an ease on its upward movement which creates some drag in the game as I have to wait to see the word and especially its definition. I would love if the new nouns were positioned to be fully visible right away.
• there’s also a lag issue for me as the more complex (yet very beautiful) scenes load, such as the Brandenburger rainstorm.
• if the game could tell which nouns you got wrong at first and show those more often than the ones you always get right, this could be a more helpful study tool.
• I like that levels are gradually unlocked. Further motivation could be created by the words moving faster as the points go higher, as well as a definite end to each round. When I got to the third category in a set, I played it way longer than was fun because I was waiting for another “unlock” reward that didn’t come.

This game is well on its way to be one of the best in its category in the app store, and a few of these gameification tweaks would really help it shine and solve the big issue foreigners face learning noun genders! Thanks for you hard work!

Super helpful!

I grew up hearing German from my relatives, but not enough to be fully bilingual, and my biggest weakness in speech production has always been that I never memorized articles. If you are in a similar situation where you already have a big German vocabulary but need reenforcement of articles, this app is ideal. Well worth $3, provides very helpful tips, and you can see improvement with your articles by playing for just a few minutes per day. Thank you!
I can see that this would be harder to implement, but I would love a similar game to drill plural forms, since that is also a point of difficulty for me!

Developer Response ,

Hi there
Thank you very much for your purchase and your review. Great idea about the plurals, that is a tough and I personally struggle with them myself!

Enjoy practicing der die das!
