App Description

*** One of the best educational apps of the year - Apple (iTunes Rewind) ***
Now learning to speak & read Italian from your iPhone or iPad is a total cinch. With 9 addictive games designed for essential vocabulary & conversation skills, MindSnacks’ Italian app is perfect for adults, kids, students, or anyone brushing up on their Italian before taking the grand tour d'Italia.

Instead of tedious flashcards, our app is packed with entertaining games specifically designed to tackle the most common challenges associated with learning Italian. With lessons built around word gender, plural forms, and how to use -ARE, -ERE, and -IRE verbs, it’s fair to say we’ve optimized, or rather awesome-ized, the Italian learning experience.

Download the first lesson totally free and if you crave more Italian, upgrade to access all 50 lessons and 40+ hours of content. That’s more than enough to fill the entire Roman Colosseum (we double-checked).

“I got this app to help me learn as much Italian as I could before a two week vacation to Italy. I'm currently over half way done with my vacation and the app was a huge help!”

“I found Mindsnacks (from the comfort of my pillow) by doing a web search for ‘best app to learn Italian’....Within 15 minutes I had learned to count to ten (AND I also knew how to spell the words).”

“Great app!! Fun and makes it easy to learn! Well worth the money!”


At MindSnacks we like to keep it fun, but we’re serious about learning. That’s why our Italian app includes 9 challenging games designed by Ivy League professors. Each game teaches a specific aspect of the Italian language, creating a well-rounded learning experience for both kids and adults that goes far beyond basic vocabulary flashcards.

Of course studying is only worth it if it works, so our unique algorithm reinforces the learning process using proven methods from the field of memory studies. Over time, the games adapt to your individual performance, selectively repeating Italian words, phrases and grammatical points with which you’ve previously struggled. In other words, as you learn Italian, the app learns about you for a more effective learning experience.

Perfect for beginning and intermediate learners of Italian, Mindsnacks is like a helpful new Italian teacher that fits in your purse, pocket or ever-fashionable fanny pack. You’ll quickly become less reliant on that Italian dictionary so you can focus on more important stuff like booking your trip to Venice.
