Default [APP]vocab++ visual flashcards

Hey everyone,

I've just released an Android app called vocab++, which uses images (each one of which is curated by hand) to assist users in boosting their vocabulary. It's built on the principle of visual association (remember when we were kids, and our books were filled with illustrations to help us learn new words?).

The app is designed for those preparing for standardized tests, though others can benefit from it, too. I'd love to hear your thoughts on it.

You can find it in the Google Play Store! https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...sculture.vocab

Where are these definitions coming from cause I've found at least one that isn't exactly correct. Apocryphal. It say "untrue; made up" when it actually means "of questionable or unknown origin" or "of questionable validity." While similar that's a very different definition than the right one.

The words have been collected from various sources. I'll look into this issue and make an edit ASAP. Thanks for pointing it out.

If I did I'd be charing you all a LOT for it No, the initial plan was to bring in the images using the Google Search API or Bing or something, but the quality of images coming through was pretty horrific. I wasn't even close to being happy, but I felt the idea was extremely strong. As such, I hired someone to find images from around the web to link to a word.
