    So far so good. Learned how to say a couple words but can't see it being great for recognizing how to write it. 5 mins or so a day only.
  • Fun way to learn

    What I enjoy so far is visuals and the ability to choose to learn specific categories for a language.

    I liked the ideas to keep the learning habit everyday. I am using it to learn Korean. So far, it works! There’s a bit flaw in their design—sometimes the pictures cannot make me link to its words; for example, in Korean, the “it shines” and “sunny day” are the same picture! It made me wrong sometimes. :-p
  • Great app

    I can really see myself using this tool in the future to strengthen both my French comprehension and my pronunciation as well. One can choose whether or not to learn a term, for example if I am familiar with ‘l’orange’ because it is a cognate, I can choose to skip it and dedicate my time instead to learning “la pomme” within the five minute session.
  • Great app, but it’s missing one thing.

    This is definitely a great app, but it’s only in portrait view. That’s the reason why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 stars. Not to be mean or anything, but it is common sense. Since a lot of other language apps can be viewed in either portrait or landscape view, I would have expected the same for this app. And I did pay a lot for the polyglot membership. If you could fix this for the next upgrade, I would really appreciate it. It would be very convenient changing the screen in either portrait or landscape view. Please keep up the good work!
  • Love it!

    I have tried more language learning programs than I care to admit. They’ve all just had flash cards and sometimes a test. This is the best for actually learning. There are no flash cards- just introduction and practice. It’s great.
  • Great for vocabulary

    By Proud-Flufflepuff
    Overall, this is a pretty good app. It has great graphics, and the way you interact with it is enjoyable. That said, there’s no focus on any grammar. Of course, grammar isn’t everything, but if you have lots of words but no basic frame of how to use them, it’s pointless, so it would be nice to perhaps be taught some grammar with each unit? It is a vocabulary focused app, but it advertises itself as if you can learn an entire language from it, with or without grammar. I’d say use this app with others that are better at teaching grammar concepts. It’s certainly worthwhile to use this app if you want to learn new words, but don’t rely solely on it to learn a language. -Eden, 13

    This game is different and appealing. I have only used it for five minutes but I think I may enjoy this app.

    Great app. My only hope is that they eventually find a way to add Kanji to the Japanese language feature but it’s still awesome anyway. Edit: I was wrong, apparently the app does have Kanji, it’s just not a default setting. You have to actively turn it on. So really, no complaints.
  • ES FUN!

    I can speak good English now. I forgot almost all of my English after moving and when I came back I couldn't speak. This just made me click, and now I can speak English well again.
  • Beautiful and well made

    So far so good, learning words like a baby but I’m hoping I could get to greetings soon
  • Integrates lots of different ways of learning

    By htittle001
    I like that there are games but it also teaches you have to write the words or letters. I haven’t paid for this language app yet but I would say so far it seems worth buying for the extra perks. My mother is Korean and that is the language I’m learning so when I talk to her she seems excited about how quickly I am picking it up.
  • Dual use

    I use this app for my 5 year old who simply struggles with spelling/reading (I’ve selected “learn English”). He loves everything about it, even the time limit. This app is near-perfect in design and simplicity. It’s like flash cards on steroids. I personally use it to aid in my Spanish classes. My only complaint is that the words are not separated phonetically. So when he faces the portion where he needs to click-to-spell, it isn’t broken up into compound but rather random clusters which doesn’t aid in the reading process at all, and confuses my toddler. This is something that should be fixed for foreign languages as well. If that were fixed, you’d have a universal and perfect app.
  • Easy to make a habit

    The 5 minutes only approach is super effective. You can learn a lot in 5 minutes and the short time makes you eager for the next session!

    The app.
  • Good to increase your vocabulary (nouns)

    5
    By Sasha Choi
    This app helps you increase your vocabulary of nouns. You won’t lean verbs or adjectives. If you expect to learn to speak Korean, this is NOT s good app. If you want to learn nouns categorically, this is a very good app.
  • Makes learning fun through interaction

    Ive been using this app along with LingoDeer, and DuoLingo. This app is the most fun. It’s a great filler in between more advanced learning like LingoDeer. I find myself just wanting to play on Drops. It doesn’t feel like studying but I already know many words I never knew before thanks to Drops. I did notice that their voice for “I write” is said in blunt form when the Hangul says it in polite form. “자는 글을 써요” is said like “나는 글을 쓴다”
  • TOO MANY NOTIFICATIONS!!!

    This is a great app to learn vocabulary. The best I’ve tried. I wish there where study sections like, “past tense verbs,” “future tense verbs,” “adjectives,” etc. Instead of just getting those spread in random sections. Overall it’s great for vocabulary but as a language itself is lacking. Also, the writing practice in corean should be by letters and not by syllables. In that way, I’m forced to learn the correct spelling of the word. But it’s completely worth downloading!
  • Fun!!

    For now I’m giving Drops 3 stars. Let me explain why. I’ve downloaded this app multiple times and every time I’m so tempted to delete it or have deleted it. Your monetization strategy feels cheap: ads AND limits to practically everything. Really? I’m the first one to spend money on an app when I think it’s worth it, but when you force it down my throat I want to do just the opposite. Especially when it comes to limiting people’s time to learn, that’s extraordinarily disrespectful to someone learning a language. This, and many other things don’t need to be behind a paywall for people to subscribe. Your product is good guys, but try to respect people a little more.

    Drops is great at making vocabulary interesting. A good tool to supplement other primary learning techniques.
