* THE SCIENCE BEHIND MINDSNACKS *
At MindSnacks we like to keep it fun, but we’re serious about learning. That’s why our Spanish 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 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 Spanish words, phrases and grammatical points with which you’ve previously struggled. In other words, as you learn Spanish, the app learns about you for a more effective learning experience.
Perfect for beginning and intermediate learners of Latin American Spanish, MindSnacks is like your own personal Spanish teacher you can take just about anywhere . You’ll quickly become less reliant on that Spanish dictionary and learn the grammar and vocab needed for traveling in Spain or other Spanish-speaking countries.

Ratings and Reviews
A Bit Disappointing
I use this app frequently and enjoy it, but there are a lot of apparent flaws.
One of the most obvious flaws is the fact that the pictures for the words are confusing- in more way than one. Most of the cartoon photos are cute and easy to understand. Others can have more than one meaning, which can be annoying in the image recognition game. The other picture concern is that not all the cartoons are cute little pictures mindsnacks shows you before your purchase! Many of them are actual photos- and they're... ugly. For whatever reason they decided to use poor photography instead of the adorable little cartoon pictures they use for a lot of the game- and the pictures are often extremely confusing.
There's a lso a little bit of "Spanglish" or wordings of phrases that aren't as likely to be said by a native Spanish speaker (Quiero ver vs. Quiero que vea, for example.) and I've seen at least one full on mistake (tienes cuidado supposedly meant "be careful", but "ten cuidado is how you'd actually say it).
This app is absolutely brilliant! I cannot even make this up. It is the best app on my phone. I haven taken 3 years of Spanish in high school I know how to read/write it pretty well but my only problem is not trying to fully immerse myself in the language. I need to familiarize myself with it every day & also trying to speak it. With this app I could easily pick up right where I left off in high school. One day, I hope I can be fluent. On another note I really liked would have enjoyed the geography app if they would have updated it. I would LOVE to see a History (World, by Continent, or just US) mindsnacks and maybe even an LSAT one! Don't ever let these apps die.
I really do truly love this game!
Have you ever played a game that was so addictive you couldn't put down? Can you believe that's possible with a language game? I think the reason why this game is so addictive is because they have several goals to try to meet. You are either working toward completing a lesson, or getting a high score in a game, or finishing a quest, or completing your visual / recall / spelling skills up under your profile. There is always something to work toward. I just can't put the game down! Plus, the graphics are pretty good and the words are spoken very well!
