I own many many apps designed to increase my vocabulary, but this app has become my favorite. The explanations and graphics definitely help me retain the meaning. OUTSTANDING vocabulary app!!!!! I love it!!!



The ability to have it give you acronyms and such (as shown in the preview pictures) appears broken. All that comes up is a black box with nothing in it.

Other than that, the app is basic. Basic definitions, basic lay out, basically pretty boring. The cartoon art is a lackluster attempt to add some humour to it, but they really should have gone for all fun or all serious.

Added to the bug and I want my money back.

(Despite some reviews, not all the words are basic, but the ones that arent tend to be ones you will never use!)

Not worth it


I've been using this app for a few months now, and know most of the vocab words already. Today, the vocabulary word of the day was "beam", which is really the last straw for me. Don't bother using this app if you actually want to learn new words.
