    I love this app because it is easy to learn the language you want. But it’s a bit weird because it lets you study the language after 10 hours of your recent study.
  • Awesomeness!

    My memory has always failed me in learning a new language but this seems different. The activities are fun and engaging and I CAN commit to 5 minutes a day!

    So here’s the deal, if you want to learn words, and words only, this is a GREAT tool! If you want to learn how to conjugate and speak full on sentences, this isn’t really going to help you with that. This is my take on it though. When we were all little ones, we learned one word at a time. That grew our vocabulary and then people we spoke to would help us with the proper use of those words and how to put together sentences. Right? That’s essentially what this app does for you. It makes it into a fun way to learn how to pronounce and associate words with pictures and spoken answers. I opted for the sweet deal they were offering for the polyglot lifetime premium plan because I want to learn more than one language in the future as I travel around the world. I, personally, won’t do more than 10 minutes within a 2 hour period because I want to retain as much information. I’m not a good “Crammer” when it comes to studying. So the free version is fine if you don’t mind learning new words and practicing old ones, once a day. I had a bit of an issue when they decided to recreate the app and I had to get rid of my old one. My purchase wasn’t restoring and I thought I was going to be out money. It took less than 24 hours for customer service to respond and they were very friendly. It took 48 hours for me to be back up and running with the plan I had purchased. SAVE YOUR APPLE PURCHASE RECEIPTS. It’s all I needed to show them to be restored. The only reason it’s not getting 5 stars is because I did *assume* it was going to teach me full conversations. I’m honestly not sure if they’ve updated their app preview page, but there was a lack of information stating it was an app to learn only words when I downloaded it. I’ve almost made my way through foods and I feel as though I’m genuinely learning. Which makes this exciting and not so overwhelming that I want to give up. Even though I’m not learning how to converse, some of the other apps I’ve used (Duolingo, Rosetta Stone, and babbel), have made it too difficult (for me) to feel successful in learning. I would like to finish everything Drops has provided for me and go back to Duolingo (my 2nd favorite language app) to learn how to put all those words I’ve learned into a sentence.
  • Need access to completed topics

    Great app, but I would love to be able to go back into completed topics for additional practice. I can’t go through other topics because I still need to work on “completed topics,” but I am now locked out of them.
  • Great for building a foundation

    Drops is great because learning words and small phrases makes grammar and other, more difficult aspects of language acquisition easier. Knowing words helps with understanding context and can ease the process of learning sentence structure and more since you don’t have to learn what the words mean at the same time. Highly recommend as a starting point if you’re interested in learning another language!
  • Does not work!

    I was bamboozled into purchasing the premium year subscription for$69.99. With this subscription it states you can immediately unlock content, however that is not the case. How do I cancel or get this fixed! Also I can’t do the Family Sharing as stated. I downloaded this for my son on my phone, with the expectation of sharing so he could practice on his Mac, and that too doesn’t work!! Please help!
