Lexicum has arrived on mobile

In the past weeks we've been working on ways to make language learning part of everyday life. We help you expand your vocabulary by making it more accessible to you so that you don't see it as extra work but as an opportunity to improve. One major step to achieve this is bringing vocabulary learning to your mobile. Read on to see how...

We are proud to introduce the Lexicum mobile webapp. This is a convenient way to access your vocabulary book from wherever you are. Curious? Just open http://lexicum.net on your mobile and check it out (you'll need Chrome or Safari though, other mobile browsers are not supported yet)

Still, here is a sneak peek of the Lexicum mobile experience. There are the key features in Lexicum that are conveniently used on the go.

1. Dictionary

The ability to look up words as you encounter them is very important for efficient learning. Have you had situations where someone mentioned a word that you didn't know or you encountered new vocabulary in an article or on a sign? Now with Lexicum you can reach for your phone and look up the word in the dictionary. Once you've quickly switched to language learning mode, you put down the word, maybe make a reference or two about it, and go on as if you've always known the new word.

2. Quiz

Of course, memorising is about making knowledge accessible whereever you are. Because of this now you can use your flashcard-based quiz whenever you wish, be it while waiting for the elevator or while travelling on a bus. We have also made sure that you can use your quiz even with unstable network connection in cases when you are at busy or remote areas.

3. All the excitement...

Squeezing the power of a desktop application in your pocket comes at the price of reducing the functionality that is one tap away. Lexicum is no exception to that, but we've made sure that those features that are most valuable to your learning can also be found on your mobile.

We've done our best to provide a good balance of usable features on the mobile. If you think we can do better, please let us know in our community forum. We will be very happy to hear from you.

As for us? Our next step is the Apple AppStore. iPhone users, prepare yourselves. You are about to enter the digital era of vocabulary learning. In the meantime, fell free to use the mobile web app, which you can actually install and launch from your home screen as you would do with a native app.
