Description

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.

Love Drops, but not crazy about the update

I love Drops to help me learn useful Russian vocab in a fun, easy way. It was especially helpful when I was just starting our and didn't know how to read the Cyrillic alphabet. I actually like the time limits imposed by the free version, as it prevents learning from becoming too exhausting. I had had issues syncing between two devices, but that has been resolved. That being said, I'm not crazy about the latest update. I don't hate it though, but I liked the old version better. It's nice that the different topics are grouped thematically and that one section from each group got unlocked by the update. But the groupings also made topics nonlinear, which makes it harder for me to pick which vocab area I should learn next. It's almost overwhelming to have more freedom in what to learn next because now there's less structure. I'd like it more if users could have the option of using the app with the old configuration or the new one. Still a great app to assure language learning!

Accelerated Learning Techniques Applied

Excellent app for making the learning of important vocabulary of a target foreign language fun. The technology used in this app subtly draws one’s focus away from the fact that one is learning new vocabulary, and lulls the objecting overly-active conscious into a quiet compliance. The call and response approach is effective in encoding new words in the mind for memory, the kinesthetic and tactile nature of the interactive game-like presentation make practice an easy habit.

One thing I’m having trouble with is getting my polyglot subscription to open in the general “drops” app. I purchased the polyglot subscription inside of the Russian drops app. I can access all the languages now from the Russian app. But not the general drops app like I would like to be able to see

Thank you.

Hi, Thanks for playing Drops and sending us positive feedback! Having the purchased subscription available in all Drops apps, not only in the specific one the purchase was made in is something we have been working on a lot. After logging in to the app, it should be working now as you wanted to see it. :) Again, thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with us!

Previously critical about previous update—now I love it

I have been using Drops for months now to learn Russian and I love how this app became a part of my routine effortlessly. I was critical of the previous update because I thought it sped things up too quickly, which I wrote about. However, with this new update, they resolved the issue I had. This shows that they really pay attention to their consumers which is very admirable. I truly thank them for paying attention!

My only suggestion that I have left is a more efficient way to select the words I want to study in the Touch Word Dojo. That being said, I am truly appreciative of this app and the efforts the developers make to this product as great as it can be. I am excited to see what they will come with next.
