About Drops

Drops is an app that helps users learn and remember new vocabulary words in their target language. The app divides words into different subjects, and the subjects cover most of what you’ll need in daily life. Drops language app is available on the App Store for iPhone and iPad and Google Play Store for Android.

Drops Review

The Drops app helps its users learn new vocabulary words quickly and efficiently. Its design is absolutely beautiful, and the science behind the app helps you store new words in your long-term memory. 

The Drops app's fun, colorful layout definitely makes the language you're trying to learn feel less intimidating, even if you have no prior experience with it. Drops' 5-minute lessons teach vocabulary and phrases by matching images with their corresponding word and vice versa.

Drops limits your learning time to just 5 minutes of vocabulary building gameplay a day. Seriously, once your five minutes are up, Drops starts a countdown timer for 24 hours later when you can play again. The games are fun, having you swipe letters to form the foreign words (Spanish, French, German, Italian, and English) in order, choose the correct illustration for the word, answer true or false questions, and occasionally race against another player.

The Drops language learning activities are really engaging, which was refreshing. I like them because they actually help you remember the words you’re studying. They also keep you interested while you learn, which I’ve noticed is a problem with other apps.

Drops is often compared to Lingodeer and Memrise, and with good reason. Lingodeer uses a similar gamification method, whereas Memrise incorporates similar image mnemonics. However, Lingodeer teaches in a more holistic manner, whereas Memrise has multiple decks with different focuses.

There are also a number of other language learning apps that focus on different areas.


When you create an account, you can try out Drops' premium features free for seven days. The app offers three different packages -- $10/month for a monthly package, $3/month for a yearly package, or a one-time payment of $160 for lifetime access to the app.
