We've addressed an issue in our Fill in the Blank game. Additionally, we have adjusted the keyboard so that it no longer interferes with the answer box.

Ratings and Reviews

Great practice resource!


Except for a few small (hard to tap accurately on iPhone) buttons, this has been a great way to learn vocabulary and helpful phrases. We can choose pictures or plain cards, and we can choose which direction to translate: English to German or German to English. It even has basic grammar explanations. We like games for review, too!

Freezes once opened


App opens to a screen showing several product descriptions with a login and shop button at the top. Freezes on that screen and cannot scroll or tap anything. Network icon looks like it is trying to load something but then it returns to splash screen again. Completely unusable.

Developer Response

Love it, and could be better


I love the way how it teaches languages. No longer starts from the letter or boring grammar, it puts u into a living situation directly. I mean, that's how we learn our mother tongue.

Just one suggestion, the audio play button can be designed larger, especially when the cards are displayed in a row. Though I tried carefully, it's easy to take my play action as flip one. That's annoying when I want to focus.
