Drops Named Google Play’s Best App of 2018

Back in 2015, we had an idea for an app that would change the way we learn languages. Rather than add game elements to a boring, traditional language course, we reversed the process and built a game that allowed learners to play their way to a new language.

We called it Drops.

Over the past three years, Drops has boomed in popularity and our success hasn’t gone unnoticed. This week, Google announced its favorite apps of 2018 and Drops was at the top of the list as “Best App” of the year.

In their words: “[Drops is the app] that we found ourselves returning to and sharing with friends all year. Beautifully designed and universally useful.”

The Drops team is elated to have been selected and we wanted to take a moment to celebrate a very important part of this nomination — you!

We appreciate you being a part of this journey, and we’re just getting started. This next year has a lot of exciting developments in store, and we can’t wait to share it with you.
