Ads disrupts quizzes but I upgraded.


I really love this app but I can’t even take quizzes. The screen begin to flash repeatedly that I fail to answer a question. This only happens when I’m thinking. I would love to buy a remove ad version but all I see is purchase to unlock levels. Please put an option to remove ads upgrade. For now I’ll patiently wait, and hopefully I’ll be able to make use of this wonderful app. Thanks! I’ll change review later.

EDIT: took my chances and upgraded. No more ads. I’m now very happy. It does need an update for iPhone X though. Changed to five starts since i have upgraded and love it even more.

A Refreshing Change


This is a fun and quick app for the young looking to improve their vocabulary, the older folks wanting a little grey matter stimulus or just about anyone tired of the same old inane matching games. I've only been playing a few days so I've not given the noteworthy five star rating but that may change in time. Definitely worth spending two dollars on the old brain.
Upgraded my rating to five stars because it's truly worth it. Excellent way to spend a few hours rather than the usual cheap cartoon based inane drivel that most apps consist of. Enough said.

Great app for nerds like me


Love this app. Used to play the games on the dictionary app so great to see it expanded into its own app. Variety of quiz styles is great.

I had a few thoughts as I played the game. Not complaints but suggestions from the user:
Allow user to hear the word pronounced during the quizzes. Currently can only hear pronunciation until after quiz by reviewing answers
In reviewing answers section, consider making the correct answer the bold red text and incorrect answer in light gray. Currently it’s reversed. Better to have correct answer stand out.
