it's NOT a freemium - you have to pay to use all the nice features - only if you want to just learn without features - it's free for you.

i paid for a year subscription i was unhappy because of a lot of bugs in the software which hindered the use of the software.

i tried to email their support they couldn't do anything just saying they are working on it which in the year that i was using that they never fixed a damn thing.

Honestly just an abysmal program. Memrise is to learning/memorisation as a disabled, geriatric goat is to high-speed transport, chances are you'll spend more time going around in circles, fighting against poorly-implemented features and bad algorithms. Memrise is for people who want to _feel _like they're learning and being productive while staring at over-simplified information and gussied-up, shiny interfaces. And that's if you find a good quality course, which most are not as there is no moderation and no rating capability, they also removed the innate comments/forums page for each course and they alternative is simply a workaround/stop-gap.

The best part? The entire premise of the name (the "mems" you "use" to "help" memorise) are actually useless. Unless you're getting the word wrong you're never going to see them other than when you pick one, and most are so poor (for reasons mentioned above i.e. no rating or moderation) they're actually destructive to anyone who knows even a pittance about memorisation and learning.

If you actually care about your learning, just take the plunge and go with Anki, you'll be all the better for it.

This is great! So far I'm really Impressed. I am a previous smart.fm user, I loved the cloud based program and it worked great. I would be using it still if it wasn't a paid service now.

This is such useful software!

I love this little web app for memorizing! Anki is good, but I love the versatility and interface of Memrise.
