Ratings and Reviews
Good, Helpful, But Sexist?
I gave it a higher rating because it did help me a lot. I did better on the quiz on this app than all other apps after just one look at the pictures and definition of the words. It helped a lot. The reason I took off one star is because it does seem sexist towards females. Most pictures of females are of them being overweight, like for the definition of huge. I think something like a whale or elephant would fit that better. I don't know for sure if this was intentional or not, but the amount of pictures of women being overweight versus the amount of pictures where men seem perfect or better than women or whatever seems to me that it is more intentional than not. Even my brother thinks it's sexist towards women.
Really WORKS & FREE !!!! Funny too
I downloaded this on a whim because I'm taking the SAT really soon...and it turned out to be really helpful and great. Not gonna lie, I was surprised how time flew by studying and now I'm going to see what else these guys have in other apps because it's been the easiest way to learn important vocabulary. I know that vocab is worth so much on the SAT and I've heard that it's the CR section that colleges really care about, maybe math too. It's FREE which is great, and just these words alone are going to help. I've seen them come up a lot on the practice tests that I've been taking already. Two words: GET IT. You have nothing to loose, that person that said its sexist, idk. Crazy.
The best tool to learn vocab!
I am a long time tutor for SAT, ACT, ISEE and SSAT. This app is a tutor's dream come true! Better than flashcards, vocabulary worksheets and all the other aids I've tried to get students to use over the years, the app puts the PICTURE in their minds, attaches the WORD and its definitions to it – and let's them HEAR the word, too. Kids always have their cellphones and they can easily snatch 5 minutes on the way to school or between classes. 5 minutes twice a day and they are done! The pictures are fun, evocative of the meanings; the definitions are concise and true; the quiz functions very helpful: Visual Vocab is a champion! Now looking forward to upgrade for iOS 11.
