When frustration hit — learning vocabulary with the wrong Flashcard app
If you are not satisfied, change it!
What to do with hundreds of own Flashcards you have already created when you are not anymore satisfied with the Flashcard app you are using?
It is pretty difficult to learn the language and create your habit, not mentioning hours spend on own Flashcards.
You keep creating hundreds of Flashcards and suddenly…
…you realize, this app you are using:
a) is too playful for you
b) changed unexpectedly her look to a horrible one
c) misses loyalty to her community
d) made your favorite feature more expensive
e) creating cards is too complicated
f) the algorithm pisses you off
So what do you do next when you feel frustrated? Usually, users do nothing. Why?
We call it Flashcard sunk cost fallacy.
Flashcard sunk cost fallacy
Sunk cost fallacy in Flashcards would mean you put so much effort in creating Flashcards in one app, that you are reluctant to pull out of it even when it starts to waste your time and it makes you feel frustrated.
Vláďa, the brain behind Vocabulary Miner, shared once himself such frustration of a Flashcard user:
“I felt like there was always something missing in the other vocabulary apps. I was looking for an app that brings quality, simplicity, and usefulness in one.“
And Vocabulary Miner was born…
We were looking through these forums and told ourselves — let’s make it more simple. Let’s help people migrate and choose the right app.
Many users are discussing alternatives to well-known apps like Memrise or Anki, speaking about “migrating” which means many want to move their own cards and find another place to learn.
