* 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
Fun and effective and awesome
This app makes languages fun to learn. Also, I like the quests. They push you to learn and do more. Without them, I would never be motivated to do the games. However, some quests are very hard and are not worth the points given. For example the Kung Fu Student (finish a perfect game of Belly in 1m 45s) and especially Kung Fu Master (finish a perfect game of Belly in 1m 35s) were extremely hard. Kung Fu Master was worth just 225 Xp and I worked so hard to get that quest. I would suggest either removing these kinds of quests or giving more xp for them. other than that, I love the quests and I can't stop playing this game. :) I also like how you can choose what unit to learn. Some units are a little challenging, so you can postpone the harder units to do later.
I recommend everyone download this app!
I love mindsnack a lot and this is the third time I bought their pull lessons (SAT, Spanish, now French). I don't understand why people are complaining and being bitter over paying $5! Really? It is well worth it and very cheap. Along with this app, I took four years of French in high school and I am taking advanced classes. I keep this app in my phone in case I need to do any review to jog back my memory or to play for fun. I love this app. The only thing I would suggest is a part two or more lesson plans. I know it's too advanced, but it would be nice to include subjunctive and passé composé verbs. Also, they should add a lesson for being injured so you know how to say "I have a headache" (J'ai mal à la tête). That's all. Thank you!!:)
Love this app. It engages the user in many different ways so that you can learn in different styles. It teaches vocabulary,spelling, phrases, visual recognition. There are games that challenge you in many different ways. There is clear audio of pronunciation and visual representations of the vocabulary. I love it. It also makes learning fun but setting all the lessons in a gaming environment. You level up and unlock new types of games. I wish there was a way to select different types of quizzing based on subjects in the past that you've "mastered" but no longer feel confident in. Basically I wish there was a way to customize reviews/quizzing by choosing the past lessons you want to be covered.
