It was a good app besides something very abhorrent they continue to do to me..
The study reminders sometimes state "HEY YOU, YOUR MOTHER WANTS US TO TELL YOU TO STUDY"... My mother was an evil sociopath who is now dead after tormenting me and my sister for years and years. Vocabulary study was my only escape from her evil poison she inflicted on my and my sister. Please stop reminding me of this inimical monster... Stop sending notifications having to do with "your mom wants you to study". Stop involving mothers in your app. Its not funny anyways... And for me and Leah, its downright mean. Maybe say "your granny wants you to study." Its slightly funnier and it wouldn't remind us of the torture we inured. We love vocabulary. Please do not take a fun, academic passtime... And turn it into a way to resurface bad feelings... Please
I would recommend
I love this app because I learned so many words I had never been exposed to before! My only critique is that I would like to be shot the word and then shown it used in a sentence before I am given the opportunity to conclude whether or not I know the word. Unfortunately, it does not use it in a sentence until you ask it to reveal the definition. I think that small change would have helped me learn more efficiently. Either way, a viable investment.
The New Standard
I love the Brainscape apps for their simplicity and effectiveness. After a few years in the ed-tech industry, I've come to appreciate the confidence-based approach to flash cards and the importance of consistent review to defeat the Ebbinghaus curve. Brainscape is the perfect platform for memorizing and learning quickly and maintaining those gains in the long term. Highly recommended.
