This is a fast way to build vocabulary and language facility. Sometimes I feel pride and other times I feel really humbled, but always it is fun and a great learning process. I’m hooked. It is easy to ask Siri to “Define WORD”. I learned new words or new meanings of old words every day. It contributes to my goal of lifelong learning.
I am studious of the Bible. This will definitely enhance my spiritualality as my vocabulary grows in time. It works pretty well with Voice Over too, which is wonderful. I also love that you can search for a particular synonym and get it’s definition(s), and have the option to save as a favorite. In my personal opinion, I feel this app is great for those of us who have difficulty recalling specific words to mind. And finally I’d like to add, another reason why I love this app is because for the visually impaired or deaf/blind smartphone users, there are not a lot of user-friendly games to download that can be used with Voice Over. NOW I have one! Thanks! This app is educational, easy to use and fun! To the developer, I’d like to express my sincere gratitude. CC USA
Love this app! It is said how important it is to keep the brain stimulated as you get older. I’m retired and am no longer getting the many challenges I got while working. This tool keeps my brain active.
What an incredible way to keep us slackers on our toes. I love it! Vocabulary is so important when dealing with the more intelligent in society, like my brother. He has been tested at genius level, despite a 15 year bout with drugs and alcohol.
This is a fabulous app for learning and reviewing vocabulary. It focuses on finding synonyms, specifically by recalling the meaning and layers of meaning connected to the roots of individual word. It’s efficiently organized; a quick and fun way to review vocabulary.
I love the app! It’s great that it Tahoe’s weather the word is a noun/verb/adverb/ or adjective. But it would be great if I could click on the word/s and it says the correct way to pronounce it, as well as the meaning to the words
I am fairly literate and have a love for the English language and the Latin root words that much of it stems from. This game contains questions from the simplistic to the difficult with lots to learn while having fun. I use it both to relax and to enliven my mood. If you like to learn new vocabulary words, this game won't disappoint!
There's only one flaw: there's no end- no way to "win". It would be much better if there was. It gives you a word, then you choose the best match, you get points. That's it. It just goes on and on and on. I even tried making incorrect choices, hoping that I would lose, so I knew the rules i.e. 5 wrong answers = game over. Nope. It's endless.
I love words, and have a good memory for roots and meanings. This game contains words from both ends of the spectrum; simple to challenging. I have found it to be an enjoyable way to spend time, and I was surprised at how often I was stopped and had to dig deep for an answer.
Simple game with some not-simple words, making it ideal for anyone who wants to learn new words without flash cards. However, it doesn't includes many words; you can get through the entire game in about 15 minutes.
I find this quiz to be great fun and a clever way to squeeze in new vocabulary. However, because some of the words are new or unfamiliar I would like to see a pronunciation guide and a sound file for each word.
