Great variety

The app is well suited for anyone looking to improve their vocabulary. I enjoy the rating scale but wish there was a better way (more objective) to quantify your progress rather than how well I feel I know the word. Overall though, this is a great app.

Brilliant App

Follows blooms taxonomy as a learning system. My advice is to generate your own sentences after going through each card and lower the deck to 5 to really capture the meanings behind each word.

The Best App I’ve Found

I’ve tried several GRE vocabulary apps and this one is by far the best. They include the pronunciations of each word and a color coding system that I ❤️. Thank you!
