“MindSnacks’ German app has helped me so much! I just recently went on a trip to Germany and I felt like I had lived there all my life!”

“This is a fantastic app, worth every penny!! I feel like the words really stick because you see it, hear it and spell it.”
“German always sounded like a hard language to learn but thanks to this app I’m enjoying it and loving it. Sooo worth it!”


At MindSnacks we like to keep it fun, but we’re serious about learning. That’s why our German app includes 9 challenging games designed by Ivy League professors. Each game teaches a specific aspect of the language, creating a well-rounded learning experience for both kids and adults that goes far beyond basic vocabulary flashcards.

Of course studying is only worth it if it works, so our unique algorithm reinforces the learning process using proven methods from the field of memory studies. Over time, the games adapt to your individual performance, selectively repeating German words, phrases and grammatical points with which you’ve previously struggled. In other words, as you learn German, the app learns about you for a more effective learning experience.

Perfect for beginning and intermediate learners, MindSnacks is like your own personal German teacher you can take just about anywhere . You’ll quickly spend less time looking at that German dictionary and more time planning that trip to Berlin.

This is an excellent app! Currently planning a trip to Europe and have always wanted to learn German, but just couldn't find a good book/ video/ app to use! Until I found this, that is. It has great games that really help to remember and learn the new words and phrase. I was a bit iffy about paying money for the other lessons, but after lesson one, it was an easy choice, and the money I paid is definitely worth it. After just 5 days, I can now speak up to 20, know all the colours, days of the week and common phrase! One suggestion, it would make it even better than it is, if it had a feature were you could practise a specific lesson. E.G. numbers or colours. I love the game and would recommend it to all wanting to learn German, young and old! Danke!!

Doesn’t work on iOS 11

I loved this app when I was learning German. I took a break from learning German for a while and have recently started again. Unfortunately, and much to my surprise, I cannot use this app anymore since the update to iOS 11 as the app is not compatible to it. I paid for the full version of the app and now I can’t use it! I also paid for the Chinese app, which I now also can’t use. Please fix this!

I love this app and have been using it for a while on my phone. I recently got a new iPad and I’m disappointed that this app is not supported for the latest apple update. I paid for the entire series of these apps, but cant use them on my latest devices. Please fix this!!!!!
