How does this work?
Clicking the “Test drive now” button launches a copy of this app on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), a web service that provides on-demand compute capacity in the cloud for developers. When you interact with the simulated phone using your mouse and keyboard, we send those inputs over the Internet to the app running on Amazon EC2 — just like your mobile device would send a finger tap to the app. Our servers then send the video and audio output from the app back to your computer. All this happens in real time, allowing you to explore the features of the app as if it were running on your mobile device.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great app for making vocab lists June 19, 2012
Verified Purchase
This is a great vocab app with a large set of vocabulary. Cons: the flash card feature asks you to compare words of different parts of speech, so the answer is often obvious. But! Pros: You can make your own lists of words and quiz yourself on those. So you can make lists of all the nouns you don't know, all the verbs, etc., and let it quiz you on those. You can also add words, which is an excellent feature lacking in other apps. The definitions aren't the best, but they are accurate. I have a few vocab apps (Ivy Standard GRE Free, Flashcard Academy GRE, (Lite) Vocab Builder) and this one is by far the most powerful, if not the most elegant. If you can invest a bit of time in customizing lists and words, you will be able to quiz yourself ad nauseum on exactly the vocabulary you need to target.

A neat app. Making lists is more trouble than it's worth however. Ads don't provide enough of an inconvenience to warrant paying for the premium version.

2.0 out of 5 stars no pronunciation September 19, 2012

How do I learn the pronunciation of the words? It seems odd to learn the word visually yet cannot pronounce the word or recognize when someone else uses it

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice but . . . February 18, 2013

It keeps on crashing on one of my Kindle Fires. They're both Kindle Fire HDs. One will play this game fine, the other crashes after a few words. Very frustrating.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ads are too distracting March 11, 2014
Verified Purchase
After downloading a spelling app for my daughter, I thought it might be fun to have a vocabulary builder for myself. I was hoping for something like "Free Rice," an internet site where you are provided a word and four choices of synonyms and you have to select the correct one. That's exactly what this game is, so there was real potential to draw me in. But, while I saw ads on the preview page for this product, I didn't expect that they would be quite so big on my actual phone. I didn't just see ads; the ads were flash-type ads that were quite distracting. On some sections of the app, they appear at the bottom of the screen, on others, at the top. In all cases, they weren't worth the distraction to me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun to use January 27, 2013
Verified Purchase
This app provides a good mental exercise for learning new words and their definitions; it also refreshes your memory for words that you have learned. It would have been nice to be able to stop the timer while using the vocab test game to allow for interruptions.
