BEST vocab app out there

I tried a few different adult vocabulary apps, but I found them to be a let-down after viewing the selection of vocabulary they would try and teach you. I knew all of it - most to be very simple words even a child would now (I'm sorry, if you're in your 20's and need help defining the word "outgoing", I have no hope for this world). This app was different. I'm learning so much more than I thought I ever could and it's greatly improving my writing and oral vocabulary.

A Gym for your Mind

Brainscape makes it simple to improve your mind. It postulates that recalling a fact is similar to doing a bicep curl for your brain. Brainscape tests recall differently though, using the age old flash card. You read the question, or word you must define, and after giving your answer, you turn the card over, but then you rate how well you knew the card on a 1-5 scale. This second step of asking yourself is a crucial step in learning process.
