This app is honestly really good I’ve tried to learn German before on Duolingo but I have never had the drive to do it. But this app makes me want to learn German everyday cause it’s way better at teaching beginners especially with the two sided cards and the voice thing where you can record yourself then hear them back. And the thing where you can hear them pronounce the words slowly so you can get down the accent perfectly. I really love this app I’ve learned more German words in the week I’ve had this app than I did in the 5 months I used Duolingo. Duo is good for some but personally I learn better visually and with hearing stuff. But that’s just me I would definitely recommend for anyone trying to learn German.

Pretty good

Probably the best feature is the app automatically keeping track of how well you know a word while at the same time giving you the option to manually overwrite this. This is extremely useful for those words you already know because you can immediately exclude them, and for words you are having difficulty with, you can manually adjust the “temperature” of the word so that you can still practice it often.

My biggest complaint is that the gender of a noun is not SAID, only SHOWN. This is somewhat annoying if you want to know the gender of a noun while practicing just with headphones while you’re not physically looking at the app.

It would also be nice to say the plural of the noun which the app does not do.

Another minor complaint is that the app forces you to set a goal of learning at least 3 words a day. Normally this is good except in cases where maybe you are busy all day and can’t use the app. Then the next day the app forces you to quickly learn new words because it thinks you are behind. It would be useful if this “goal” feature could be removed because forcing you to learn many new words very quickly doesn’t work well

Overall however it’s a great app

Why doesn't this have more buzz?

Fantastic app. I love that I can control how quickly words are spoken and/or introduced. I love that you can pick subject matter to practice, or just work your way through the whole library with a little from here. A little from there. I love that I can practice hands/eyes free while I'm driving, working out, cleaning the house, etc... Excellent variety of actual useful words & phrases. At $10 for an enormous library - super adorable. Way better for actually learning to speak & comprehend while traveling in a foreign country than Duolingo, imo
