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.

Ratings and Reviews
Great app especially if your new to the language
I have to say, I usually don’t write reviews unless I truly enjoyed or benefited from an app. With Drops I actually was able to memorize the Arabic alphabet which was a bit of a struggle at first. The way this app does everything some how helps with remembering things quickly, it makes you learn it fast so you can answer fast just like a game haha (I know that’s the point). I speak English and Spanish so obviously I have no knowledge of the language but this app has helped me a ton! Now I can sort of read things where before I couldn’t.
One thing I do have to say, I wish they would add all the differences of each letter in the alphabet such as how to distinguish it if it’s the initial form, middle form or the end form of a letter. That would complete this app honestly. I understand and know each letter now individually but I need to learn every form as well. That would be AMAZING if that was included in an update here soon!
5/5 stars in my opinion.
Developer Response ,
Hi Cudi, Thanks for learning with Drops, we're happy to hear you enjoyed playing with the app! :) We constantly work hard on improving the app and the content. We'll definitely discuss your suggestion with the team, and we'll see what we can do! Keep learning new words, and let us know if there’s anything else you would suggest us to refine!
I am learning Arabic, so I downloaded Drops. Drops says the words in the language you’re learning, and shows the written word in both your native language and the one you’re learning. There are different exercises, like matching and spelling. Using Duolingo, the pronunciations were different each time I heard a word. They didn’t teach me the alphabet in order and they only taught the sounds instead of the names of the letters. However, there are a few changes I would make to Drops. First of all, I would add a microphone so you could practice saying the words. Second, I would make one of the exercises writing sentences. For example, it would say, “Yo soy una mujer” and you would have to type in “I am a woman”. This app is good for learning vocabulary and correct pronunciation. Sentence structure is not one of the things you will learn from Drops. I think the best way to go is by using a couple language apps because no app is going to have everything. Drops and Duolingo are a good combination to use, especially using Arabic, since many language apps don’t include Arabic. That said, I still enjoy using this app and learned a lot from it.
Quick and Easy Intro to Conversation
This app allows me to explore different languages that I’m interested in by allowing me to quickly run through conversational vocabulary that I get to shape myself. This is probably my favorite feature: you get to shape the language and learning experience to what you want to know. Additionally, it’s just fast and fun to do. Although I do miss the typing aspect which would be more practical if I were trying to be literate (able to read and write proficiently) in the language, this app provides best for those who really just want to know how to speak and understand the language or add on additional vocabulary to individuals who already have been acquainted with the language.
