Starting today, a new learningApp called Study with Subwords. This was developed by Klemens Strasser and offers a well thought-out alternative to learning with index cards. With your own learning lists or content that you can download from a gallery, new knowledge can be acquired in a playful way. You can use it to query countries and their capitals, body parts and their Latin names, vocabulary and their translation or completely different things. The solution words are divided and displayed mixed up. The appropriate word must then be formed from the individual parts.

Study with Subwords by Klemens Strasser
Klemens Strasser is a developer from Austria whose name may sound familiar to you. Because his “Letter Rooms” app was nominated for the Apple Design Awards last year in the Inclusivity category (we reported). Now he has released a new, beautifully designed app that, in addition to learning functions, also focuses on accessibility. Various settings and adjustments can simplify the use of the app for people with different limitations.
The focus is of course on individual learning. Whether geography, languages, chemical elements or other knowledge that is important for school, university, work and everyday life - learning should be easy with the Study with Subwords app. By default, the display is set to split solution words into circles that fall from the top of the screen at the start of a study session. The appropriate word for a displayed term (e.g. Ber + li + n as the solution in the capital city quiz for the term Germany) must then be put together.
Thanks to the various accessibility settings, the learning function of Study with Subwords can also be individually adjusted. It is accessible through VoiceOver / Switch Control and Voice Command and features large font support. A special font can also be activated, which makes the content easier to read for people with dyslexia. Switching from a gravity-based learning game to a grid layout is also possible to make subword finding easier and ease the cognitive load of learning.

Study with Subwords - Subscription for all features
After opening the app for the first time, you can already try out many things. For example, I downloaded a few capital city lists from the free gallery and have already completed the first rounds of learning. I also tried the dyslexic font and the grid view. I find both just as successful as playing with the preset font and the falling partial word circles. However, some of the features listed above are not available in the free version. For example, not all gallery listings are available for download.
The subscription to Study+ with Subwords was offered to me the second time I opened the app. You can also book it via the settings by tapping the banner with the words “Study+ with Subwords”. The first to be offered is the 12-month subscription, which costs EUR 29,99 per year. The monthly costs of 2,59 euros are also calculated. The second subscription is paid monthly. It costs 4,99 euros per month. The costs for one year are also included: 59,88 euros. But if you want to try out the premium features first, you can do that too.
Because at the bottom there is the button “Try it now for 7 days free of charge”. If you tap on the same, the subscription booking will be displayed, which you have to confirm by pressing the side button twice. So you book the trial subscription for one week and then the annual billing for 29,99 euros. However, you can cancel the subscription during the trial period to stop the automatic continuation - depending on how you like the Study with Subwords app in the first week. If you don't want a subscription at all, you can simply swipe down the offer overview to continue using the app in the free version.
Study with Subwords Download for iPhone, iPad and Mac
You can download the app for iOS, iPadOS and macOS in the official app store. There you will also find information about the requirements for using the 107,6 MB app. On the iPhone and iPod touch z. B. iOS 16 required, and on the iPad correspondingly iPadOS 16. For use on the Mac, in addition to a computer Apple silicon (M1 chip or newer) also requires macOS 13 or newer. What do you think about the offer? Is the free version enough for you or are you interested in the subscription version? I think it's worth the price if you use it regularly.
