Best vocab app ever - This is the first review I've ever written. This app is awesome! Helps tremendously with examples and pictures of the words. I would recommend it to everyone studying for the GRE.

Great. - Helpful to learn new vocabulary, can play audio, see it visually with an image or hear it used in a sentence. Auto play is great for the car or while running.

Very useful! - You get to associate an easy to remember image to an abstract meaning in this App, which, along with a spoken storyline that goes with each word, showing its pronunciation and various usages helps you fully master new words. I got both the SAT as well as the GRE version.

I love it - I listen to it while driving (although this may not be the smartest idea), it's nice that it turns pages automatically. When I go home, I look at the list of words I listened in the car. So far, so good.

VocabAhead provides a full-brain learning approach to understanding and mastering tough English vocabulary for standardized tests such as SAT, ACT and GRE.
There are more than 500 high frequency GRE words in this app. App size is approximately 26MB due to rich graphics and full length mp3 audio for every word.
Vocabulary Words and their definitions go into your long term memory through
- the use of visuals
- high quality audios and
- contextual usage sentences
Not only you hear correct American English pronunciations but you can also hear how the word is to be used in sentences. Humor in cartoons makes it easier to remember the meaning of each word and in addition, makes the whole learning process fun and entertaining.
The Quiz section provides multiple choice questions where choices are generated randomly for reach word. Each correctly answered word is automatically moved to the 'Mastered List' from the list of words in the 'Don't Know' list.
Since the app keeps track of the words you know and those that you don't know, you do not need to worry about managing any lists at all. You just have to learn the words and confirm your learning by taking Quizzes regularly.
Your goal should be to move all the words to the 'Mastered List' by taking quizzes and answering the questions correctly.
The app is great for study vocabulary while sleeping or driving as it has a built in audio recording of each word. The use of visual imaging and audio recording welcomes more learning by using two common techniques. I also enjoyed the touch of using the words in sentences. I would definitely recommend this ap for anyone who is struggling on the vocabulary portion of the GRE.
I like this app a lot but it's lacking the ability to close or multitask while still listening to the vocabulary. Please fix.
One can use it not only for exams, but also for enriching the vocabulary! Nice way to learn new words by its brief description.
This app provides a visual comic and at least one short story or example to reinforce the definition. You can sort cards, randomize the order. And take quizzes. I hope they continue to expand the words over time, but this I'd a great study guide that should be teamed with at least one other vocab app or approach.
Good so far.. These words better be on the GRE! Taking it Thursday
Not a bad app, but seems like the developer has stopped working on this except to fix bugs. The vocab list could be vastly expanded.
This is very helpful and entertaining at the same time, that I can actually retain what I learn! The audio vocab is super helpful when I'm on the go, working out and when on the commute!
What a help with my GRE study
Love the app. Would love to see the following (in order of important): 1. iPad support 2. iPhone 5 support for larger screen 3. Background audio play support Well worth the money. Thanks!
Very good app. Provides sufficient materials for Gre with examples and pictures and sound as well. Highly recommended guys!
Awesome!!! Entertaining as well
I have never rated an app before, but from all the benefits I have gotten, I feel that I am obliged to rate this awesome app. So, if your preparing for the GRE, you must download it!
Very vivid&fun explanation!
A must-get app!
This is the first review I've ever written. This app is awesome! Helps tremendously with examples and pictures of the words. I would recommend it to everyone studying for the GRE.
Helpful to learn new vocabulary, can play audio, see it visually with an image or hear it used in a sentence. Auto play is great for the car or while running.
This app would have five stars if the app were capable of continuing when the phone is locked. Besides the previous statement, this app is by far the best, and worth the 5 bucks because of the features of the audio/picture descriptions.
You get to associate an easy to remember image to an abstract meaning in this App, which, along with a spoken storyline that goes with each word, showing its pronunciation and various usages helps you fully master new words. I got both the SAT as well as the GRE version. The SAT has more than 1000 words whereas the GRE version has about 500 words; good amount of them overlapping though.
Easy. I love that it has the audio do I can listen while driving/working out/studying etc!
I listen to it while driving (although this may not be the smartest idea), it's nice that it turns pages automatically. When I go home, I look at the list of words I listened in the car. So far, so good.
I love the audio and the pictures of this App. The examples of the sentences are great too. Anyway I love this App because it is so helpful to learn new words.
The pictures and short stories help me comprehend the words and remember them a lot better than viewing the word (in a different app) with very little context. The cartoon illustrations are cute and humorous. I found I can play it with sound while I ride the elliptical machine so I work out my brain while I am working out my body. :-) One thing I would like to have and that I don't see on this app is the breakdown of the words roots and what they mean. That would help me remember them even better. Great app, though. :-)
Not only This app helps me learn sth but also makes the process joyful. You learn each words with a picture, the meaning and lots of example.
I like having the option to listen to the word definitions. I needed to do a lot of traveling lately and it was great having the audio to listen to. I do like how the words are put into several contexts and how the definition is repeated in the audio. I don't look at the images too often.
Excellent way to learn. I listen while I run and throw the ball for my dog; even when I cook. What a time saver!
I like it! But it has some space to improve, like the amount of words!
its more than awesome. I really appreciate the time u took to create this app. One of the best vocab apps on the apple store.
This app helped me to memorize GRE words in no time. I am a mother of three and it is really hard to get some time to understand and memorize strange vocabs. Using this app helped me to study at times impossible to study at previously. For example, early mornings when preparing breakfast for children and packing their lunches. I never had the ability to study such vocabulary with an ease. Please please please prepare more versions and include all possible GRE words. Thanks you for a brilliant idea.
Love this app the visual stimulus helps for those who learn better by seeing... I can remember words just simply off the wonderful animations... Thanks guys keep upgrading and adding new features
must-have vocab app
The pictures, sentences and spoken text helps out tremendously
Please make it app with less sat words and more words that one would actually use...
It really helps
good app. the pictures deff help
I bought the SAT and GRE versions of this application so that I can construct shorter and more precise sentences at work. I am a technical liaison between software engineers and non technical personnel. Having an extensive vocabulary helps to cut very complex multi-paragraph communications down into short concise sentences. I have been using other iPhone vocabulary apps that I like but the video and audio combination method implemented here seems to be very effective so far. I permanently committed the first 40 words to memory in one day. We have a winner here. The only thing I hope is added in the future is: A) The option to have audio continue with the screen off. B) Some sort of statistics that shows progress somehow based on word difficulty ratings. All and all fantastic.
Good App!!! Recommend for all who wanna learn the words!!!
Very Easy to use
Best way for all types of leaners to actually learn, memorize, understand and be completely familiar with the challenging vocabulary on the new GRE.
