  • Beware of paying for this

    I was a pro member that had been using Memrise for years and it was great. However, Memrise will soon be disabling the ability to create custom decks or use others. There will be no app for custom decks so you are stuck with a junky website. This limits you to a few of their own language decks which are not terribly good and very basic. This might be ok if you have zero experience and want to learn a few things but it’s not a system for fluency or if you a student in an existing class. There are also far better options for absolute beginners (at least for Japanese learners). Like other language systems they seem to be trending towards taking money from absolute beginners and providing nothing for the rest. This app went from wonderful to worthless.
  • Where’s the Cyrillic alphabet?

    May I suggest using the Cyrillic alphabet for the Russian course?
  • Memrise plans to remove user-created content

    Memrise plans to remove all community created decks to support their own courses. You will no longer be able to study the decks you created on the website through the app. Instead they plan to move all community created decks to a website that will not allow you to study your decks offline.
  • Worthless without community content in app

    Happy customer for two years of pro subscription (three paid accounts in my family) but incredibly annoyed they are dropping community created courses from the app and offline support. Community created content is the only option beyond beginner level, for lesser known languages, and for custom decks to support other learning (we make decks for our kids to use for homeschool vocab). What I pay for is the Memrise platform coupled to community content.
  • Disappointingly buggy and unsophisticated

    I purchased a year-long subscription to try to learn Finnish. I was very disappointed with my experience. Specific feedback for app developers is below. - audio-type questions rarely work. Only one button/answer makes a sound, so it is obvious which one to pick. The other ones just turn red when you click them. They fix the audio bugs occasionally and new bugs appear later. They really need to look into fixing the root cause here. - The app gets stuck in long stretches of reviewing words you already know. - font is really bad: the letters i, l, and j look too similar. - the algorithm doesn’t seem that smart. It will frequently present you with the same word multiple (3+) times in a row. You should not get “credit” for scoring correctly on the second or third time in a row you’ve seen a question. At that point, you are only testing your working memory, not your Long-term memory, which is what is needed to master a language. - in “learn new words” mode, the app gives you only a few words to learn at a time. It’s easy to remember the words when only a few are being presented, but it is much harder to remember them later. - Pro Version - you can use the hints for the entire word, and it counts as you getting that word correct. You can use the hint function for all but one letter and it counts the word as correct. You should not get “credit” for hitting the hint button. - gets stuck In “classic review” so that you don’t learn new words. Unsure how to get it out of classic review - don’t quiz the same word in a row. If I just heard a word and translated it correctly, don’t give me another question for that same word again, immediately afterward. - don’t linger on cognates. The word “idea” is the same in Finnish and English. I don’t need to review that word as often as I need to review others.

  • Community Content will be hobbled

    I’ve enjoyed and paid for this app for a while, but I’ve just been told that all community-created courses — which is to say, the vast majority of the courses available, and the majority of the courses that I use — will be removed from the app shortly and placed on a website with far less functionality. This is extremely disappointing. I am hurt that MemRise will remove these useful courses while I and many others are in the middle of learning from them. I am not convinced that the few remaining MemRise-created courses are high enough quality to justify the continued use of the app.
  • Useless

    This app is going to be useless next month when they remove all of the community courses. What an atrocious decision.
  • Memrise doesn’t care about it’s users

    On February 20th, Memrise Inc announced that it would move user-created courses to a new website called Decks without any input from the course creators or their users. Decks is a website not an app. I paid a one-time subscription for Memrise Pro so I could study user-created courses offline, and it appears this is going away. Memrise’s user-created courses make Memrise exponentially more useful. — Dear anyone who may be reading, I don’t like how no user input was gathered before this was announced. Especially no input from course creators. I haven’t seen Memrise add many new features that actually help with mastery lately. Instead I see more social media marketing and more weird business tactics, all while the “language experts” department is moving slowly. Memrise needs language experts who can prototype new features alongside programmers. Memrise is taking the strategy Duolingo took. But what Memrise needs to do isn’t pay attention to the competition, but rather to develop itself. I suppose Memrise wants Decks to be successful semi-independent platform or a learning supplement or lead generator to Memrise. You, Memrise Inc, need us course creators. We are MORE THAN COWS. Decks is going to be better than Duolingo’s Tinycards at first thanks to the hard work of course creators. Decks needs course creators and course creators need Decks. We need each other. But Decks needs us to survive, whereas course creators Overall, Decks is a poorly executed business decision, and indicative of Memrise’s poor business strategy. Again 1), language experts and programmers need to work together 1-on-1 or in small groups to create a good language app and 2) Memrise pays too much attention to competition and marketing, and too little to actually improving the product. Memrise needs course creators. Sincerely, A disappointed course creator
  • Please don’t release Decks

    Memrise, I cannot support this platform anymore. I just started a project to coordinate with teachers from Central America and the Caribbean to make Japanese courses on Memrise that will work with existing textbooks. Here I am promoting Memrise, while Memrise is planning to dump all user created courses off to the side. I will have to call off the project if this is the case. Please do not go through with Decks unless it has all the features of Memrise courses including an app. Releasing Decks without the same functionality expected is not acceptable.
