Only 5 minutes a day:
Drops limits your learning time to 5 minutes. This might sound crazy but it works like charm. Learning a new language might feel overwhelming, but by chunking down into 5-minute sprints, the obstacles standing in your way of finally starting to learn that new language are made obsolete.. No excuses: you ALWAYS have 5 minutes! The time limit encourages intense focus which further enhances the effectiveness of memorization.
100% visual learning:
Every single word is beautifully illustrated. Your eyes will appreciate the gorgeous pictures and your mind will store the new memories more efficiently. You won’t have use the word of your native language, but instead, connect the new words to the illustration of the meaning. Faster, better and more fun! :)
We believe in fast-paced, intuitive learning, and typing on your phone’s keyboard is anything but fast. Say hello to rapid swipes and taps! You’ll need those extra seconds to get the most out of your 5 minutes. ;)
Strategic vocabulary selection:
The “what” is perhaps more important than “how”. We handpicked 2600+ practical words in 100 topics that you’ll actually use when you let’s say travel to a country where your new language is spoken.
Keep tuned as even more languages are in the works!

Ratings and Reviews
... As I have only been using this app for a matter of minutes, so far, I can say that everything seems very exciting and fast-paced from the off! Several words, all from a shared topic, have been introduced to me along with pictures, a clear pronounciation & simple instructions for each segment of the allotted (free trial) 5 minutes. These have included a chance to spell the words out myself, from a set of syllables on the screen that I can drag and drop onto the dotted line. Something which, on this most recent occasion, left one last group of letters/a syllable on the screen, so that this isn't as straight forward as just dragging and dropping everything - there is still a level of discerning, albeit at a very basic level, which I find is likely to help me recall certain words better than just the standard, "écoutez et répétez" teaching system that I had as part of my (French) curriculum at school!
I'll try and review this again in a couple of weeks so that I can really see if I've been able to learn anything useful in that time.
A word to the Developers: spelling words out in full whilst also being able to put them into a little context, really helps with rich learning. Is this something that you'd only consider for your paying users? If at all?
Also, perhaps knowing if an item or word is male or female, this might actually help your users when they come to learn these languages in full. Just an idea though...

Fun, easy to learn, simple
I’ve tried a few different apps in an attempt to learn a different language (Spanish currently) and I’ve never been able to learn properly before downloading Drops. Other apps I’ve tried haven’t been as interactive and ‘fun’! I’ve only been using the app for a few days and I’m already confident with using a big variety of words and phrases! You do have to wait 10 hours in between each 5 minutes ‘session’ unless you pay for a subscription but it’s not that bad for me as I do one in the morning, and by the time I go to bed I get to do another! It would be cool if there were things you could do in the app to speed up time though. But you do get rewards every day you open the app which are pretty useful! Overall I’m so impressed how easily this app has helped me learn, it’s honestly so much fun and it definitely keeps you entertained whilst learning! I’d absolutely recommend this app to anybody wanting to learn a new language, you won’t regret it!

Should be free...
I think it’s a good app for language learning. I use it in conjunction with Duolingo and it gives me practice in words Duolingo doesn’t teach at the same time, and a change in teaching method, which is welcome - I think the best language learning is achieved through multiple methods of learning. However, it asks for £3 to £5 per month to use it in an unlimited way, otherwise you only are allowed to use it for 5 to 6 mins a day - that’s 1 lesson. Also, I feel it can be a bit more basic than Duolingo, going through words a lot more times before it goes on to new words. That’s not a bad thing as more review ensures better memory retention. Better visuals than Duolingo. I’m only happy using this free as there are so many more free ways to learn out there. I have tried a variety of apps for language learning and really, I have come to think the free ones aren’t bad at all and a lot of times, paid apps don’t necessarily deliver more value. It depends so much on the individual’s personal motivation.
