It’s a great way to remember words or remind myself of interesting words that I hear on the go. I can simply email the word to Yak Tack and the definition is emailed back at interval that help me remember the definition.

Pros:

This is a simple way to improve your vocabulary and remember words

Cons:

I can only have a few active words before it starts to becomes overwhelming. Be careful not to add too many words at once. It will happen :)

I really love the concept, as there are many words I find myself learning over and over again. With Yak Tack the words actually stick.

Pros:

It's extremely easy to add words, and a VERY effective way to learn them.

Cons:

It's easy to get carried away and try to learn too many words at once!

Great point about doing too many words at once. I'm doing some research to identify the optimal number of active tacks. My hunch is that staggering them across intervals will be effective, instead of having, say, 5 tacks all start on the same day (which would put the on the same interval schedule). Stay tuned!

Easy to use and a welcome surprise in my inbox each time I learn a new word

Pros:

The word referral system is a great way to find new words that I didn't realize I should learn

Cons:

There are so many words I need to learn...

I find the app simple and easy to use. It helps me broaden my vocabulary and understand more words in the English language. I feel smarter already :) I would recommend this app to others especially non-English speakers.

Pros:

Easy, Fun, Simple, Effective

Sign up flow is super slick! Interesting pricing structure.

Pros:

Creative way to learn vocabulary words.

Cons:

Perhaps user generated content could be leveraged to make the site more engaging, but I love the sparseness of the app too.

I love this concept.

Pros:

Remember words!

Cons:

Forget what words mean
