True Vocabulary is the best Vocabulary App in the App Store. It is your personalized vocabulary tutor. If you are preparing for GRE, SAT, GMAT, ACT, CAT or simply interested in improving your vocabulary, True Vocabulary provides the most efficient and elegant step by step adaptive learning process.

True Vocabulary uses an intelligent algorithm (based on the concepts of spaced repetition, Leitner system and lexical cohesion) to design adaptive multiple-choice vocabulary quizzes. Learning tasks are divided into small sets of multiple-choice quizzes designed to help you master the basic words before moving on to the advanced words. Words closely related to your hardest words are selected more frequently in the quizzes. For a fixed word, the correct and wrong answers are selected adaptively giving rise to hundreds of combinations. After each wrong answer, you receive a detailed feedback with the meaning and usage of the corresponding word. Coins, Gems and Levels are unlocked adaptively to motivate, evaluate and reward the learner.

True Vocabulary works best when used frequently. Daily notifications remind you to take the latest personalized quiz.

Ratings and Reviews

Perfect for Preparing for the GRE!!

True Vocabulary makes use of how we learn and remember information and adaptively gives you quizzes designed to optimize retention. In the random mode you expand your set of test words and in adaptive mode your are continuous challenged by words that previously gave you trouble. Within a few days I already found that I had improved my vocabulary immensely. I just tracked my progress for fun but I really wish I had a resource like this when I was prepping for my GRE and I think the same could easily be said for the GMAT, SAT, ACT or related tests as well. Try it out and see for yourself!

The true guru


This amazing app had actually made me enjoy learning new words which was never the case before.

I am really thankful to the author of this app for creating such a wonderful app. I look forward to using this app more and more. It has been a wonder experience.
