Ever felt entertained while learning a new language? Now you will! Drops is game-changing approach to language learning - quite literally. We took ‘boring’ out of vocabulary learning!

Only 5 minutes a day:
Drops limits your learning time to 5 minutes. This might sound crazy but works like charm. Learning a new language might feel overwhelming but by chunking down into 5-minute sprints, the barrier of entry is nonexistent. No excuses: you ALWAYS have 5 minutes!
The time constraint induces ridiculous focus which further enhances the effectiveness of memorization.

100% Visual learning:
Every single word is beautifully illustrated. Your eyes will appreciate the delicious pictures and your mind will store the new memories more efficiently: you won’t have use the word of your native language but connect the new words to the illustration of the meaning. Quicker, better and more fun! :)

Effortless practice:
We took a good look at why games are so fun and addictive and injected the essence into Drops to create not just a “gamified” learning app but a proper game experience! It is freakishly immersive but in this case you don’t waste your time playing instead you build a valuable asset: knowledge of a new language.

Swipe based:
We believe in quick pace and keyboard typing is anything but fast. Say hello to rapid swipes and taps! You’ll need those extra seconds to get the most out of your 5 minutes ;)

Strategic vocabulary selection:
The “what” is perhaps more important than “how”. We handpicked 1700+ practical words in 100 topics that you’ll actually use when you let’s say travel to a country where your new language is spoken.

Forge learning habit:
Drops wants to convert you into a learning addict. No matter how effective your learning tool is, if you don’t use it on a daily basis, it doesn’t really matter. Drops tricks your mind and you’ll be better for it!

NEW: Augmented Reality (AR) - practice!
(AR mode is available on all iOS 11 devices that are powered by Apple’s A9 or A10 chip: iPhone 6S or newer / iPad Pro / 2017 iPad)

I’m sure you’ll love Drops as much as we enjoyed making it. If so, please leave us a review so we can make Drops even better! :)

p.s.: We take full responsibility for the potential addiction to learning.


Keep tuned as even more languages are in the pipe!

Great app especially if your new to the language

I have to say, I usually don’t write reviews unless I truly enjoyed or benefited from an app. With Drops I actually was able to memorize the Arabic alphabet which was a bit of a struggle at first. The way this app does everything some how helps with remembering things quickly, it makes you learn it fast so you can answer fast just like a game haha (I know that’s the point). I speak English and Spanish so obviously I have no knowledge of the language but this app has helped me a ton! Now I can sort of read things where before I couldn’t.

One thing I do have to say, I wish they would add all the differences of each letter in the alphabet such as how to distinguish it if it’s the initial form, middle form or the end form of a letter. That would complete this app honestly. I understand and know each letter now individually but I need to learn every form as well. That would be AMAZING if that was included in an update here soon!

5/5 stars in my opinion.

Amazing app, please consider adding Arabic dialects

One day I hope to see this company make categories to learn words specific to the various dialects of Arabic. This app teaches MSA (Modern Standard Arabic). This is great if you intend to watch a political speech, but it leaves you unprepared to deal with daily conversations. Talking to a local Arab on the streets in MSA is almost the equivalent of talking to your English friends in Shakespearean English. It just sound funny because it’s so overly formal. Many words and pronunciations are different within the dialects. The two biggest dialects are Leventine and Egyptian. Khaleeji Gulf is popular as well, and very hard to find study material for. Add these dialects and that’ll just be there icing on the cake for this amazing app, since most apps focus purely on MSA. People would probably buy the full version in masses just for that selling point alone since most people learning Arabic struggle to find decent study material for dialects after they get done ironing out the basics of MSA.

Best Language App

Honestly, this is the best app for gaining a main understanding of words. I studied MSA and this helps tremendously with my reading skills and it uses repetition in various ways to incorporate new words into your vocabulary. There are picture associations which are used across each of their language apps to encourage you to understand the meaning. I’m a visual learner, so this helps me to remember the words when I need to recall them. I use both the Arabic version and have also downloaded the Russian app as well. I’ve never picked up words as quickly as I have with this — on my own. I just wish that it had a longer time period to play that was free.
