Ever felt entertained while learning a new language? Now you will! Drops is game-changing approach to language learning - quite literally. We took ‘boring’ out of vocabulary learning!

Only 5 minutes a day:
Drops limits your learning time to 5 minutes. This might sound crazy but works like charm. Learning a new language might feel overwhelming but by chunking down into 5-minute sprints, the barrier of entry is nonexistent. No excuses: you ALWAYS have 5 minutes!
The time constraint induces ridiculous focus which further enhances the effectiveness of memorization.

100% Visual learning:
Every single word is beautifully illustrated. Your eyes will appreciate the delicious pictures and your mind will store the new memories more efficiently: you won’t have use the word of your native language but connect the new words to the illustration of the meaning. Quicker, better and more fun! :)

Effortless practice:
We took a good look at why games are so fun and addictive and injected the essence into Drops to create not just a “gamified” learning app but a proper game experience! It is freakishly immersive but in this case you don’t waste your time playing instead you build a valuable asset: knowledge of a new language.

Swipe based:
We believe in quick pace and keyboard typing is anything but fast. Say hello to rapid swipes and taps! You’ll need those extra seconds to get the most out of your 5 minutes ;)

Strategic vocabulary selection:
The “what” is perhaps more important than “how”. We handpicked 1700+ practical words in 100 topics that you’ll actually use when you let’s say travel to a country where your new language is spoken.

Forge learning habit:
Drops wants to convert you into a learning addict. No matter how effective your learning tool is, if you don’t use it on a daily basis, it doesn’t really matter. Drops tricks your mind and you’ll be better for it!

NEW: Augmented Reality (AR) - practice!
(AR mode is available on all iOS 11 devices that are powered by Apple’s A9 or A10 chip: iPhone 6S or newer / iPad Pro / 2017 iPad)

I’m sure you’ll love Drops as much as we enjoyed making it. If so, please leave us a review so we can make Drops even better! :)

p.s.: We take full responsibility for the potential addiction to learning.


Keep tuned as even more languages are in the pipe!

Gorgeous and engaging

Visually this is the best language learning app I’ve ever used full stop, and that visual engagement really helps me focus because I’m not wasting time trying to figure out how the app works.

Also I like that for the most part, it doesn’t ding you for a wrong answer, it just gives you another shot and keeps going. I don’t see the point of having stressful strikes looking over you threatening to start the lesson over if you get too many wrong; this is a wonderful alternative.

Keep up the great work, devs. I hope this app brings you a lot of success to add even more languages.

First 5min

I only finished the first 5 minutes but this app makes me excited and I think it will actually help me learn the language at least a little bit, I have terrible memory so the only way I learn is repetition so this is perfect. So far so good.

Update: just did a little more and found out I have to pay to learn more or wait 10 hours, so that kinda stinks but I guess they gotta get paid somehow, it would be cool if I could just watch ads or something for more learning time.

Thanks for playing Drops! We appreciate your feedback! As for the timed 5 minutes, it's designed to best maximize the learning curve for beginner users. You are right, we are a tiny team of 2 and pouring ton of work into this product (this is our bread and butter) and we offer a version that is perfect for casual learners for free. You can get extra minutes for free (Ad, share, etc) and from time to time we broadcast discounts in the app. Be in the lookout for it so you can get awesome discount rates for your learning needs. :)

Four Stars

The app is honestly so great. The dictation is easy to follow and the app makes it fun and easy to learn.
Compared to other apps, this one was the best. However there was some spelling mistakes that made me confused. In the app, bread is spelled Bánh mý but it’s actually spelled Bánh mì. I’m not sure if the different spelling is just a different way to spell it. But, I even asked a native speaker and they said it’s spelled Bánh mì and has never seen it spelled with a “y”. Also, I feel like there should be an update where it checks to see if you’re pronouncing the words right, or spelling the words right! Anyways, it’s a great app and I totally recommend it!

Hi, Thanks for playing with Drops and for your feedback! Excuse us for the trouble! We'll take a good look at this issue and fix it asap. Practising the pronunciation sounds like an interesting feature, thanks so much for your suggestion. We will put your recommendation on review, discuss it with the team and see what we can do :) Thanks again for your feedback and we are looking forward to rolling out more features for you soon.
