Pros and cons of Vocabulary.com app for iPhone and iPad

Vocabulary.com app good for

Great app. I like to play it when I need a timely distraction from work, school, etc. And unlike social media sites, it actually helps me learn something. Highly recommended.
Whether prepping for an exam, trying to better acquire the English language or wanting to understand all those big words from classical novels, this app will help do all that while occupying your free time in a manner thats both constructive and enjoyable
Intelligent engine driving the app, great interface, attractive design to make this a tool worth using. Enjoying it and worth the cost
I use this app for enlarging my vocabulary. One function I love is that when you find a word, you can just slide the card and then see different but form-similar words. I am a non-native speaker, so hopes this app can help me to make some progress in my English.
Very convenient if you need to make yourself appear linguistically competent when someone uses a word that you dont quite understand and need to do a quick search of the said word.
Very scientific way to learn new words and it makes learning interesting yet challenging. Once you are introduced a new word, the repetition in different context makes higher retention.

Some bad moments

This app is a waste of three dolllers and I dont lyke it. It makes my brain sad. Kill it with fire. Its a waste of brain cells and time. Dont do it my dudes. Its really bad and makes no sense what so ever.
Its not functioning properly. When we ask for a list, it shows words that ARE NOT in that list. It is mixing up lists.
What for you need to open another account to be able to to use the vocabulary app ? No thanks !
