SCIENCE BEHIND MEMRISE
Designed by Ed Cooke, a world-renowned memory coach, and a team of cognitive scientists, Memrise uses memory-enhancing techniques confirmed by extensive scientific research.
In collaboration with University College London, Memrise runs The Memrise Prize - an annual $10k cognitive science competition to discover the most efficient methodology for learning vocabulary. The most effective methodologies from the competition are fed back into learning games on Memrise.

Exceeded my expectations
I benefit most from the "difficult words" tab. But, what separates this app from most other flash card apps is the combination of audio, visual, multiple choice, and spelling a word in both languages so one must recall the word without a choosing from a list (if you're using this for language study). These methods are cycled without user input, so it's more convenient for me than quizlet, especially on an smartphone. I don't think quizlet offers the same options on smartphones, last time that I tried. I think that the premium is worth the price.
I am using Memrise to strengthen my German and it has been really useful! I especially like the memes they use to help anchor new learning in your mind. The only issue that I have had with the app is that the sound doesn't work on some of the phrases which is frustrating - especially when you're supposed to choose the correct pronunciation and no sound comes out. It makes it impossible. Other that that, though, I have really enjoyed using the program!
This app gains most of my positivity because of the website. Memrise has really helped me pick up on the language I want to learn and it efficiently sticks the words in one's mind.
However, the app could use more work.
For example; being able to customise the number of words per lesson or review, being able to skip the sentence audio (it takes pretty long sometimes).
Over all, though, I dig the concept and think it really is working. Keep it up!
