Learn GRE vocabulary quickly and actually have fun doing it with my cartoon flashcards! I bet this app will make you smile or laugh at least once.

My name is Vince Kotchian, and I've been a GRE prep tutor since 2008. In this app, I've created flashcards for over 1300 GRE words and 160 word roots. Each vocab flashcard has a silly cartoon, a clear definition of the word with an example sentence, and a memorable mnemonic to make it easier to remember the word.

Here's a mnemonic example so you know what I'm talking about: "prodigal" means "wasteful". The prodigal Prada gal spent $1500 on a pair of Prada boots. Get it? :)

The app's smart spaced repetition system shows you words when you need to review them to make your GRE vocabulary studying more efficient and effective. There's also a streak feature to help keep you motivated to use the app consistently. Download it today and start improving your GRE verbal score!

Life? Saved

Although, I believe something is wrong with the streak counter, hopefully it’ll be fixed in the future updates. ❤️

Really love the app, this deck was the reason I had to go on Quizlet and I’m not a big fan as I’m more of an Anki person. So this is a game changer for me, especially with the addition of Spaced Repetition.

Edit: Would love to have a feature where I can see how many cards are in learning phase, what they are and a search function. Basically some more features that makes it a little more tweakable like Anki.

Happy to have saved your life ;) and thanks for letting me know about the streak issue. We will fix that soon. EDIT: streak bug is fixed. EDIT: We added a search function!

better than I expected

it's only been a few days since I started using it after going through the magoosh apps. to be honest I thought a lot of the sentences/illustrations were kind of cheesy, but some have actually turned out to be pretty helpful memory devices. loses like a star and a half for the few gross/juvenile cards and typos
update: lost another star because yeah, I get that the definitions have to be short, but many are incomplete or cover a scope either way broader or narrower than the word actually implies. I keep having to check with other dictionaries because I would not get on well only using the definitions as they appear

Developer Response ,

The trouble with humor is that it’s not going to work for everyone, but I’d rather make some people laugh than bore everyone! I’d love to hear where the typos are if you don’t mind. The definitions are not intended to replace those from a dictionary, but rather are designed to be efficient and effective for GRE prep and work well in my experience to get ETS questions right.

Superb content!

The artistry and time invested into designing visual aids for EACH of 1300 words is astounding. This really helps me remember the words as a visual learner. The mnemonic devices on each card are great too. For being 3 months old this app is incredible.

A few ideas to establish yourself as the leader of the GRE prep pack:

-add a shuffle feature to the card deck for cards I have yet to master. This will allow folks to review cards in a different order, thus solidifying our memory of words. This feature alone would be worth $5 to me, and I’d be happy to pay for that add-on
-make the sound setting permanent and save in the app (I can turn sound off to listen to music but when I leave the app for a while or turn off and back on the setting is reset). This is really just a minor tweak.

Overall a great app, with unmatched content. With a few tweaks it could be perfect. I highly recommend it!

Developer Response ,

Thanks for these suggestions - ideas are always welcome! Glad you're enjoying the app.
