A fellow pupil is my F block sports and entertainment marketing class recommended this to me and I couldn’t be happier. I CANT STOP SCROLLING!! I can’t describe my agonizing addiction to this app in words, only sounds in which my family is beginning to get concerned for my mental health. MY LOVE FOR THESE WORDS IS INDESCRIBABLY POWERFUL. I genuinely think I’d end it all if I didn’t get the chance to use this app again. I’ve sent hundreds of messages to all of my friends telling them to get the vocabulary app…I got blocked. I’ve lost so many friends and family on this fierce journey but it’s all worth it once I get that notification of a new word bright and early at 3:00 am. If I am being honest I haven’t been sleeping at all because the adrenaline rush of an anticipated word shoots throughout my body HAHAHAHAHAHAH😳 thousands of hours of my life wasted on this app. I miss my family. I miss my house. I’m living under a bridge mindlessly scrolling until I pass out and I can’t take it anymore. Beware of this app, it will change you…❌

Ads are extra annoying

This app is serious about annoying you into making a purchase with their ads. Often and loud! If you’re using the free version, do not open this app if anyone is sleeping by you. Then they want $5/month. If you can afford that, great, but for anyone on an extremely limited budget– well, i guess they think a one time payment of $30/year bringing the cost down to $2.50/mth is the answer (it’s not). I would do $2.50/mnth if I could pay monthly, otherwise, there are free options or even simply reading books and using the tap: dictionary that comes with your phone or kindle in order to learn these words. I’ve only seen 5 words i haven’t read in books so far. That said, if you use the daily alerts, that’s almost good enough. That’s free. You get the definition of good words there, and if you need anymore information, like sentence examples, then you can google them. 3 stars because most free apps with ads aren’t this annoying. Sometimes all it takes is a single scroll and you get a long, noisy ad, which i think is plain rude to those of us who have more important things to spend $5/month on. End rant.

Update: after talking all this smack here, i realized if you deny the $30/year it offers $15/year. I still had to decline, even though it said “last chance” (had it been tomorrow when i got paid, i would’ve done it), but still, the offer was there.

Displays Same Words Despite Disliking

I was ecstatic to find this app but disappointed to find a lack luster experience. The app displays the same words constantly. I could not get it to not show words that I am already familiar with or don’t care to learn. It was not easy nor intuitive to find the dislike button (which is hidden in the share menu… I have no clue why one would think that would be a logical place for it). Then when I finally found it after reading reviews here that rated the app poorly for the same reasons… I was even more disappointed to find out when you use the dislike button it actually does nothing too. So the same word repetitively shows up on my widget even tho I have disliked it.

Doesn’t seem to be a hard thing to fix. And quite frankly is such a core use case to solve for (people being able to dislike or remove words they already know or don’t find useful). So can’t in good conscience recommend this app to anyone despite its promise. Going to try to look in to other alternative apps. It’s a shame because I did like the simplicity of this and the fact it had widgets you could use. But the inability to stop words from coming up over and over again is excruciatingly annoying.
