Word Dolphin first release

I'm glad to tell you about Word Dolphin. It's my new Android application designed for memorizing words. Some time ago I wanted to improve my English vocabulary. I wrote unknown words to a notebook and learned them. It worked fine but in the learning process, I found next  inconveniences:
  • learned words will forget fast; so you must create review calendar;
  • different words remember differently and you must extra pay attention to them
  • transcription gives an idea about pronunciation. For good learning, you need to listen to a native speaker
  • personal paper vocabulary is not good for learning and writing extra information such as comments or samples of usages. Especially it is hard to write between written rows. Of course, you can write necessary things but the extra text in front of the eyes will complicate learning
  • because of you learn the words written by hand you will have problems to recognize printed words
  • too hard to find necessary word among many pages of words
  • adding the words into a notebook makes to learn added words. It is not convenient when you need to learn some words
  • often notebook with words is absent when you need to add a new word. Also, this approach has words duplicate problem
  • you can forget or loose a paper notebook
  • to edit the words written by hand will clog vocabulary because it interferes with learning
  • eventually, notebook just tears
 I started to search the application which fixes all these problems but did not find exact because some applications were too complicated especially for children. Another was too slow on my phone or was developed only for one language. Finally, I started to create a Word Dolphin which would be free of these problems. I made an effort for application to work fast and easy to use. I hope it has happened and you like it.
You can get it on Google Play and read Word Dolphin blog.
