Ever felt entertained while learning a new language? Now you will! Drops is game-changing approach to language learning - quite literally. We took ‘boring’ out of vocabulary learning!
Only 5 minutes a day:
Drops limits your learning time to 5 minutes. This might sound crazy but works like charm. Learning a new language might feel overwhelming but by chunking down into 5-minute sprints, the barrier of entry is nonexistent. No excuses: you ALWAYS have 5 minutes!
The time constraint induces ridiculous focus which further enhances the effectiveness of memorization.
100% Visual learning:
Every single word is beautifully illustrated. Your eyes will appreciate the delicious pictures and your mind will store the new memories more efficiently: you won’t have use the word of your native language but connect the new words to the illustration of the meaning. Quicker, better and more fun! :)
We took a good look at why games are so fun and addictive and injected the essence into Drops to create not just a “gamified” learning app but a proper game experience! It is freakishly immersive but in this case you don’t waste your time playing instead you build a valuable asset: knowledge of a new language.
We believe in quick pace and keyboard typing is anything but fast. Say hello to rapid swipes and taps! You’ll need those extra seconds to get the most out of your 5 minutes ;)
Strategic vocabulary selection:
The “what” is perhaps more important than “how”. We handpicked 1700+ practical words in 100 topics that you’ll actually use when you let’s say travel to a country where your new language is spoken.
Forge learning habit:
Drops wants to convert you into a learning addict. No matter how effective your learning tool is, if you don’t use it on a daily basis, it doesn’t really matter. Drops tricks your mind and you’ll be better for it!
NEW: Augmented Reality (AR) - practice!
(AR mode is available on all iOS 11 devices that are powered by Apple’s A9 or A10 chip: iPhone 6S or newer / iPad Pro / 2017 iPad)
I’m sure you’ll love Drops as much as we enjoyed making it. If so, please leave us a review so we can make Drops even better! :)
p.s.: We take full responsibility for the potential addiction to learning.
Keep tuned as even more languages are in the pipe!

Ratings and Reviews
Brilliant cognitive connection to imagery
I am a UX global design specialist and can honestly say this is one of the most freaky Smart ways to learn that I have ever experienced. I’ll be taking this into my own product designs and future for enterprise companies. Thank you for making learning Hindi a delight.
Helpful with some major flaws
This review applies to the Hindi version
I enjoy this program and it has been helpful to me. Specifically the version that I started with was amazingly helpful in getting me comfortable with reading while words in Devanagari script and with breaking down words into their component letters.
Earlier this year much of what was so helpful went away. Games that used to make you work to spell a word letter by letter now just require you to swipe the whole word or at most two parts of a word down to the bottom. While this gives a review of the sound of the word, encouraging letter by letter spelling was SO much more useful.
A female voice teaches the verbs by reading the masculine version of a present tense sentence. “I am counting” for example. You just have to adjust , and this is not a huge flaw as long as no one doesn’t learn grammar too.
Much more importantly, there are some mistaken words. The word for correct is taught as the direction right. The word for 100,000 is taught as million. It is exceedingly annoying to be forced to drill an error months after I reported it and to wonder what other mistakes I am learning that I haven’t caught.
This program taught me to sound out Devanagari well, for which I am so grateful. I mourn the fact that much of that functionality disappeared with the upgrade early this year.
Developer Response ,
Hi, Thanks for still playing Drops! We are a small team and we constantly work hard on improving the app and the content. We'll definitely double check the words you reported, and make sure to correct them if it's necessary, as soon as possible! We appreciate you called our attention to the errors, and we're sorry for any inconvenience!
I really like the app, I enjoy practicing an hammering down my vocabulary. This with a grammar book is an excellent way to learn Hindi, especially since this app offers excellent pronunciations of words - something you obviously can’t get with a book.
However, the romanization of the script in this app is really bad. Anedaa(Egg/अंडा)? That does not follow the standards of the International Phonetic Alphabet, which honestly does not have much difficult standards to follow. Egg should be romanized to andaa.
