I love this app! It really helps when I’m reading a new book or watching a new movie. I just make a list with the title and add all the words i don’t understand. Then I use the quiz feature to learn those words. Quizzing yourself is really great, because that’s exactly how people learn. It turns the process into active learning versus just passively looking up the definition of the word. Makes the words actually stick in your brain. Been looking for something like this for ages. Awesome job!

I love this app; however...

The practice rounds are long enough to feed you several words at a time so that the definitions and understandings become easier to retain. I enjoy the different ways to learn vocabulary by use of multiple choice and typing in the word to best fit the definition. I DO NOT like the GIFs. Yes, they are fun starting out using the app, but they are not always 100% accurate. They can be vague and throw off the meaning of some vocabulary.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the feedback! You're right, sometimes GIFs could be better. We just updated the app (version 1.5.10) and now it's possible to report from the quiz if a GIF is incorrect or misleading. We constantly work on improving the quality of our content and your reporting in case of mistakes will be highly appreciated.

Climb test review

The app looks awesome. I’m not a native speaker but I have lived in North America for over 7 years. I found multiple words that I didn’t know and the app thought it to me in a really fun way. You can also choose categories in which you would want to increase your vocabulary in. Overall I think it’s more fun to log in time to time and work on your vocabulary than dig through the dictionary.
