100% illustrated: Pictures directly carry the meaning - you don’t have to use your native language at all! No intermediary. Faster, more effective and of course more fun for Korean learning process! :)
5 min sessions: limiting practice time sounds crazy but it it makes it incredibly addictive - which is cool thing for learning. The barrier of entry is close to zero so you can’t have any excuses: you’ll have 5 minutes even on the busiest day!
Effortless play: We know why games are fun and addictive and distilled the essence into Drops. The result is a truly immersive experience but it’s not waste of your time while you play because you build a valuable knowledge.
Quick: Keyboard typing is painfully slow. Welcome rapid swipes and taps! Especially for Korean vowels, and consonants.Trust us, you’ll need those extra seconds during the quick learning session ;)

Love Drops, but not crazy about the update
I love Drops to help me learn useful Russian vocab in a fun, easy way. It was especially helpful when I was just starting our and didn't know how to read the Cyrillic alphabet. I actually like the time limits imposed by the free version, as it prevents learning from becoming too exhausting. I had had issues syncing between two devices, but that has been resolved. That being said, I'm not crazy about the latest update. I don't hate it though, but I liked the old version better. It's nice that the different topics are grouped thematically and that one section from each group got unlocked by the update. But the groupings also made topics nonlinear, which makes it harder for me to pick which vocab area I should learn next. It's almost overwhelming to have more freedom in what to learn next because now there's less structure. I'd like it more if users could have the option of using the app with the old configuration or the new one. Still a great app to assure language learning!
Developer Response ,
Hi, Thanks for learning Russian words with Drops, and sharing your opinion with us! We constantly work hard on improving the app and the content, and user feedback like yours can help us a lot! Keep playing and let us know if there’s anything else you would suggest us to refine!
So I truly love the app. I do. But there are always some things that can be fixed. Like for example, you surely know of the button that says “Share and get 20 minutes”? Yes, well the problem is that it seems to not work for me. I’m not sure if it is problem with my device or with app. Either way, if it is app that has issue then I would like that to be fixed. It’s not a big deal but just want to let you know. Anyway, I have learned a few things and I enjoy the app! It has a nice design and I appreciate that it sometimes repeats the same thing over and over again. I’m sure that I am one of those people that complain about this but... the time. Both things. The time it takes to recharge it too long. I mean, you wait for 10 hrs for 5 minutes! Of course you would probably tell me to just pay for more time. That’s how life is. Most things are not free. I might question who would pay that much money for an app that teaches a certain amount of Russian. I’ve learned a small portion of Cyrillic alphabet. In short time. But you are not here to read a random person’s progress. I assume you are here to see if you are doing well and if there are some things you could change or fix. Now about the 5 minutes, you must get this complaint a bunch. But time too little. Anyway, I must say goodbye. Thank you for reading and I hope to see the small problem fixed.
Better than Duolingo
I love this app! My family is russian so I have some vocabulary and can understand some stuff, but I downloaded this app so that I could learn how to read. It starts you off learning the alphabet, then moving on to words and phrases. The pronunciation of the words is very accurate and the voice is definitely modeled after a native speaker. This app is better than duolingo because it starts you from the beginning, with the alphabet instead of words and phrases. It is important to know these first before learning diction, syntax, and grammar. If you want to learn Russian, this is the app to do it with. The only reason that this did not get 5 stars is because of the time limit. The 5 minutes is a good time frame and really pushes you to produce answers fast. But after they run out, you have to wait 10 hrs until they refill. If you want more time, you have to pay for the app. This was advertised as a FREE way to learn Russian. I understand the whole premise is to be as free, but maybe have just choose to view an ad for 5 additional minutes. Otherwise, this is the best app I’ve seen yet!
