* THE SCIENCE BEHIND MINDSNACKS *
At MindSnacks we like to keep it fun, but we’re serious about learning. That’s why the MindSnacks SAT vocab app includes 9 challenging games designed by Ivy League professors. Each game focuses on a different aspect of vocabulary building, creating a well-rounded learning experience that goes far beyond simple flashcards and word lists.
Of course studying is only worth it 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 material from the word lists with which you’ve previously struggled. In other words, as you learn more words, the app learns about you for a more effective learning experience.
Perfect for students preparing for the SAT, PSAT and GRE exam, or adults looking to expand their vocabulary, MindSnacks’ SAT Vocab app is like a helpful vocab tutor that goes where you go and teaches on your terms.

Ratings and Reviews
Love it! For SAT
Although I'm not sure if this app is directly related, but I received 100% on the vocab portion of my SAT.
Either way, this app is extremely helpful! It helps you remember words in a fun way so that it doesn't even feel like you're studying! I get a lot more out of it because I have a higher inclination to play this than I would if I were merely studying flash cards. It is also extremely well put together design-wise and never crashes. It is well worth the money, I can't stress enough!
The only complaint I have is that after a while the cute drawings for the vocab words disappear and are replaced by stock images that make it slightly harder to connect to each word. I prefer the drawings but it's not a major problem.
I'm very pleased with the way this app gives you the words, pronunciation, definition and uses it in a sentence. Very user friendly and effective. I'm using it to build my vocabulary for the NLN. My only reason for not giving five stars is that it doesn't show complete definitions for words which can be misleading. Do research with this app don't just accept the definitions as law. I advise supplementing with a good dictionary- Merriam Websters Collegiate is my favorite.
What a loss
Best app or method for learning vocabulary. It was fun, engaging, didn’t feel like a chore.
I’m planning on taking GRE soon and realize that with updating my phone, I will no longer be able to access mindsnacks and I am very disappointed. Nothing comes close..
Hope CEO reconsiders and makes it available for us in newer updates.
