Ratings and Reviews
Great free vocabulary app
I really like using this app in my spare time. It’s fun to compete with my husband over who picked the right definition, and we both learn new definitions and words as we go. It’s surprisingly simple, easy to use, and doesn’t have annoying pop-up adds, which is awesome considering that it’s free.
However, there are a couple things that would make it better.
I would like to see some sort of pronunciation aid before you pick your definition, especially for new and unfamiliar words, as well as identifying how the word is being used (e.g. noun or verb). Both would be helpful in identifying the correct answer before choosing. Also, if you could add some sort of footnote that points out when a word has multiple meanings, we wouldn’t be as confused or self-doubting when presented with a new definition for an already familiar word.
Otherwise, I really enjoy this app and would recommend it to others. Thanks!
This app has been really great in terms of vocab building (as the name suggests). The only thing I would work on is the options presented. Some words that are shown have multiple meanings based on their contexts, so it can be a little difficult to understand which one the app wants until after you select an option and see the example. I think it would be helpful if there was a little disclaimer at the bottom of every word this applied to, indicating that this is only one of multiple meanings (just like in the Magoosh flashcards app). This would prevent people from believing that their original definition is incorrect, and instead just allow them to build upon it.
Also, really appreciate that these apps are free. Most of the resources that are actually helpful have to be bought somehow, so it’s relieving to be able to find such informative guides at no additional cost! Thank you!
Really like it ; not quite perfect yet tho
The only thing that really bothers me is I have dyslexia, and some times a challenge is nice.. Most people retain information more efficiently when they have a full understanding. It would be awesome if you could either put an option for us to hear the word , or at least put how to pronounce it. So many times I’ve gotten answers wrong solely because I couldn’t read the word. Also I think it would be beneficial to constantly give different options for the synonyms apposed to the same selection every time. For the most part I really enjoy the app so far. It’s easy to super easy to use. For no cost, I think they offer a fair amount. I personally would like more options and levels for myself , and because it’s no secret that grammar and vocabulary isn’t being taught or used properly anymore..
