  • Feature Request: Flashcards 4/5

    By squido
    Please add a feature to help me learn words I have favorited. Show just the word with a toggle to reveal the definition. And the reverse, view definition and toggle the word. Perhaps also a check box to dismiss it from the set when it's mastered but keep it a favorite.

  • Recognizing pictures 4/5

    By Grama318
    A picture appears with four word choices. It is interesting. However, in different parts of the country, an item can be known by different names. This complicates the game as sometimes the choices don't have the word by which the picture is known in your area.

  • ESL/EFL Successful Engagement 5/5

    By Cribbking
    I'm an English teacher (12 yrs exp.) to students in a foreign country who grew up speaking a VERY different language and are expected to translate long lists of words usually 100 words every day as evidence of mastery of the English language. They hate it. I teach a class of 11th grade students who tested at a mid-low level and have been grouped together; they've been studying English since preschool and still don't quite get it. I required each of them to download this app, and told them that if they could advance a level in a vocabulary game, I'd give them some extra credit. Everyone was energetically engaged in vocabulary acquisition. It was a beautiful scene, and, quite possibly, my happiest day of teaching ever.
  • Na 5/5

    By Kierspel

    By LMKowalski
    I love this app! It is so helpful...

  • Useful and fun! Has minor bugs 4/5

    By jessalynn94
    I love the app... It is very useful and I love that it is available as a widget for my iPhone. I enjoy seeing the word of the day each day. The games on here is a feature I recently discovered and a fantastic idea! What a great way to get people more involved with learning/sharpening their vocabulary. The only complaint is minor- that is that the app has crashed while playing a game or right after finishing my game and an ad appears. Has only happened a couple of times, but just a minor thing that could be used for improvement. Thanks!
