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!

Could use some sentence Structure stuff

I use Drops so i can learn more German outside of class, and i really love it. I love it so much in fact that I pay for the Premium offering. and it's great. however, i don't really know how to apply what i have learned. I have learned a couple hundred vocab but without knowing how to put it into proper sentences makes it feel worthless almost.

what i would like to see added is an option to learn how to put sentences together with the words you have learned. i know this sounds like a lot of work, but people would probably be willing to help out (like duolingo). this is the only thing that's making me go to other apps after my 15 minutes of german and dutch. if you guys were able to implement something like this i can guarantee people would pay for it, and i would exclusively use Drops. 4.5/5 overall.

Best vocabulary app ever!

I minored in German and Arabic in college, and later took part in multiple military language programs. I’ve seen them all. When preparing to take my family abroad I sat down and tried out six apps for building their vocabulary (and restoring mine). Drops blows the rest out of the water. Other apps have basically recycled old-school teaching styles with flash cards, lists, and quizzes. Drops adapts to the new world. The learning style is visual, auditory, and dynamic, engaging the brain. My family loves it. My teens are having fun and retaining the knowledge.

I highly recommend the lifetime (Genius) access plan. It is a (really, really) good deal as far as language programs go. I think you are going to see others mimicking this style in the future.

Developer Response ,

Hi, Thanks for using Drops to refresh your vocabulary, we're really happy to hear that you and your family love it! :) Please let us know if there's anything you would suggest us to improve on, we always try to refine the app and the content! Again, thank you for learning with us, and sending us positive feedback, it's much appreciated!

Love it, & one tweak

I love the app. I use it everyday. I got hooked on the 5 minute segments twice a day with the bonuses. When the price dropped I had already been debating on the polyglot lifetime for about a month. I am so glad I bought it outright.

I would love it if you could add some metrics such as time spent and maybe a way to compare with my friends. On other apps I can harass my friends who slack and give props to those who are knocking it out. You could do number of words... average word strength... words over 50%... streaks... total time...
