Post Recommended apps for vocabulary?

Hey, new here

Wanted to ask if anyone can recommend a good Spanish vocabulary app.
Was probably asked before but an up to date answer would be appreciated.

Thanks!

No one has responded so I'll be an answer (that unfortunately is not about learning vocabulary from apps).

It's just my opinion of course.

Worth noting (perhaps) is that I'm in my mid-40s (some may think I'm 'old school?') and have studied 3 language at class and with private tutors at length (minimum 3 years of study).

I don't believe in apps for learning vocab.

When I am reading or listening or in class and learn a new vocabulary word I write in my mini-notebook with a definintion.

Later, I write a sentence using this new word and personalize it (relate it to my experience, thinking, life, etc). I even write joke sentences and stupid sentences. It helps me remember it easier (not learning vocab in isolation).

About 6 months I bought a digital recorder and started recording vocab as well as sentences.

I review a lot.

I also write grammar sentences (for example, focusing on the Imperfect Past Subjuntive) using the new and old vocab to help put it into long term memory.

I have tried a couple of the famous apps available for vocab.

Too me it took too long and was a useless "bell & whistle."


Just my opinion.
