Vocab builder feature in WordUp utilizes advanced algorithms to expand vocabulary and improve English skills. It recommends a new word each day based on your current knowledge, allowing you to gradually enhance your language proficiency. By incorporating daily words into your learning routine, WordUp ensures steady and consistent growth in your vocabulary.

- Knowledge Map

WordUp helps you build a map of your knowledge by identifying the words you know and the words you don't know. It helps you learn new words by identifying the gaps in your vocabulary and suggesting the most important and useful English words to focus on. By incorporating daily vocabulary and tracking your progress, the Knowledge Map enables you to steadily increase your vocabulary and enhance your understanding of English words.

All 25,000 useful English words are ranked in the order of IMPORTANCE, and USEFULNESS, based on how often they are used in real-world spoken English (extracted from thousands of movies, and TV shows).

To actually learn the words that you discover in your Knowledge Map, WordUp gives you everything you need, and more! From word definitions and pictures to tens of entertaining examples from movies, quotes, news, and more. So you get a good feel of how to use each word in context.

- Multilingual Translations

There are also translations in more than 30 languages including French, Spanish, German, Arabic, Turkish, Persian, ...
The daily reviews then kick in. Like flashcards, the words will come back with games and challenges until you master them. It's called Spaced Repetition, and it's scientifically proven to help memorise them forever!

WordUp is unlike any vocabulary builder app you've seen before. It is not another dictionary app, although it can be used as an English dictionary too.

Word up suggestions and ideas

I got some ideas for this app that I think they could be good, like, when we are learning a new word, we can also see its other tenses with their pronunciation, For example, I'm learning the word "See" and also in the word I can see it's other tenses such as "saw" and "seen" with the pronunciation and these words are used.. another example: "eat" "eaten" "ate" and so on with different words.
I think this would be useful for those who we're learning new words but when want to use them in a conversation, we're not sure how to use it in a different tense. , Another idea is, that we can have a separate section where we're only learning phrasal verbs, also it would be good if had a small option to translate the "example" of the word into our language, so that we are more sure about the meaning. Keep up the good work!

Can’t learn words as you choose anymore.

They removed the learn now feature. Now you can’t learn new words as you choose - instead the app decides which words you learn in their order. They used to let you do both. I subscribed for that feature. Now they removed it. Makes no sense that we cannot decide what we want to learn. Tragically, this app does not work anymore. Will unsubscribe after my current subscription. Update after the developer’s response - still does NOT make sense you removed a pre-existed feature and refused to restore it when so many users are asking for it. Check the recent reviews. You said you guys are trying to come up with a new feature that caters to each user’s learning trajectory, wouldn’t it be much better and reasonable for us to decide what we want to learn instead of letting the app to do it? Plus, the app is already deciding what we can learn so this new feature honestly just sounds like a duplication of somewhat the same thing. This app used to be really good but the more they update it the worse it becomes. If you look at the reviews, they used to be so good now they are all talking about similar things. Full of bugs, essential features removal, etc.. And even with so many users asking, they refuse to listen. App developing and software engineering need to seriously work on this.

Update: they restored the learn now feature in the newest update. Please don’t remove it again.

Developer Response ,

Limited Use with Pro

This app has some great features such as photos, videos, and several sentences that help the user get a good grasp of the words. Its limitations that I’ve found so far in this Pro Trial and of course with the free version is that while you can import a list from another source, having multiple lists to keep categories separate, are not available. Another short-coming is that once the user has gone through the list once, it is not available to go through again and new words must be studied — not the same words for review and there’s no way around it. One other thing I’ve noticed is that when importing words to study, many are not available, making it so many can not be studied with this app. I’ve also noticed absolutely no difference between the free version and the Pro so that’s something to think about. Why pay for the exact same limited features that you can get for free? 🤷🏻‍♀️ 9/5/23 — Is the developer serious? He responded by saying they are pleased I enjoy the app and if there’s anything they can do… Did they not read my entire review?
