* WHAT OUR (SUPER AWESOME) FANS HAVE TO SAY *
“Thank you for creating such a unique app that not only helps me learn French, but makes me WANT to learn. I could have never asked for such an engaging and addicting application.”
“I have the French MindSnacks app on my iPod and I just love it! My roommate has the Portuguese app and to be honest...there are nights when we turn the TV off and spend an hour just MindSnacking!”
“I haven't had this much fun learning since I was a kid! The games are really engaging and they all target different yet essential skills for learning a new language.”
* THE SCIENCE BEHIND MINDSNACKS *
At MindSnacks we like to keep it fun, but we’re serious about learning. That’s why our French 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 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 French words, phrases and grammatical points with which you’ve previously struggled. In other words, as you learn French, the app learns about you for a more effective learning experience.
Perfect for beginning and intermediate learners, MindSnacks is like a helpful new French teacher that fits right in your purse, pocket or ever-fashionable fanny pack. You’ll soon spend less time looking at that French dictionary, which means you’ll have more time on that French vacation to gaze up at the Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe.

Ratings and Reviews
Beautiful app that needs more content
The app is 'light' enough to disguise how much you are learning, especially for visual learners and those with a short attention span! I find it great entertainment during travel with a pair of headphones.
Not just for young learners- also ideal for those looking to refresh their High School French. The 'review' section is particularly good, especially the quests that actually encourage you to look back at the sections you've already completed.
I feel like there could be more grammar based/ conversation lessons e.g. conjunctions as most of the learning is of key phrases/ words which are great but only if you know how to use them.
Also seemed like some words were missing- why teach the word for Uncle but not Aunt?
Also the pictures depicting the family members are too difficult/fussy compared to how great and easily grasped the rest of the design is.
Overall beautiful app that could do with more content.
I love this app!
This is such beautiful app and a great way to memorise vocab. I do find it a little disturbing how the pictures for the different types of meat show smiling animals with their dead cooked body parts. If anything the animal should be crying! And in the belly game on the food level the frog eats live animals that float in its belly d;
I'm thinking about buying all the levels for all the 8 apps but it's quite expensive :c.
Overall it's AMAZING and best for ages 1-100
Loved this app!
I really liked this app, and I found it really addictive- the games were fun and enjoyable ( though slightly repetitive after a long time of nonstop playing)- and I learnt loads!!! However, when I got my IPad updated, I couldn’t play it anymore as the app wasn’t compatible with the iOS 11, which I was very disappointed at.
