About & Pics

Description

Ever felt entertained while learning a new language? Now you will! Drops is game-changing approach to language learning - quite literally. We took ‘boring’ out of vocabulary learning!

Only 5 minutes a day:
Drops limits your learning time to 5 minutes. This might sound crazy but works like charm. Learning a new language might feel overwhelming but by chunking down into 5-minute sprints, the barrier of entry is nonexistent. No excuses: you ALWAYS have 5 minutes!
The time constraint induces ridiculous focus which further enhances the effectiveness of memorization.

100% Visual learning:
Every single word is beautifully illustrated. Your eyes will appreciate the delicious pictures and your mind will store the new memories more efficiently: you won’t have use the word of your native language but connect the new words to the illustration of the meaning. Quicker, better and more fun! :)

Effortless practice:
We took a good look at why games are so fun and addictive and injected the essence into Drops to create not just a “gamified” learning app but a proper game experience! It is freakishly immersive but in this case you don’t waste your time playing instead you build a valuable asset: knowledge of a new language.

Swipe based:
We believe in quick pace and keyboard typing is anything but fast. Say hello to rapid swipes and taps! You’ll need those extra seconds to get the most out of your 5 minutes ;)

Strategic vocabulary selection:
The “what” is perhaps more important than “how”. We handpicked 1700+ practical words in 100 topics that you’ll actually use when you let’s say travel to a country where your new language is spoken.

Forge learning habit:
Drops wants to convert you into a learning addict. No matter how effective your learning tool is, if you don’t use it on a daily basis, it doesn’t really matter. Drops tricks your mind and you’ll be better for it!

NEW: Augmented Reality (AR) - practice!
(AR mode is available on all iOS 11 devices that are powered by Apple’s A9 or A10 chip: iPhone 6S or newer / iPad Pro / 2017 iPad)

I’m sure you’ll love Drops as much as we enjoyed making it. If so, please leave us a review so we can make Drops even better! :)

p.s.: We take full responsibility for the potential addiction to learning.

Keep tuned as even more languages are in the pipe!

Aug 16
2017
Version 20.0

You can now add Tagalog also known as Filipino to your list of languages to learn.
As the only Spanish-inspired language in Asia, the Tagalog vocabulary is rich in thousands of Spanish loanwords. With its country named Philippines in honor of King Philip II of Spain, you’ll easily understand why the Filipino/Tagalog language is deeply rooted in Spanish heritage. Another exciting part about this language is the mixed influence of Malay and Chinese.
Tara! Laro ka na ng Drops! :)
