Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Yes, there was an experience of developing a mobile application "Scanword.ru journal" in 2014 (iOS: https://apps.apple.com/ru/app/id938083437 Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.scanword.journal). The program codes were written by outsourced programmers.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

Content. Learn and connect 18 languages.

Andrey Vesnin was born in 1974 in the USSR. He entered MEPhI in 1991 and graduated in 1997. After University, he worked as a developer of electronic equipment and programmer of microcontrollers. In 1998, wrote a program for crossword puzzles. Since 2002, he has been doing almost half of all crosswords in Russian. With a great passion for words, he chose to become a linguist. In 2014, he released his first mobile application "Scanword.ru journal". And in 2019, he released the second app – Sloword.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

1) Whatsapp. Connects people. 2) Skype. Connects people. 3) Sloword. Connects languages 

How long have you been working on this app?

From 2015 till 2019. 5 years!

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

Do not forget the words in their own or foreign languages, train mindfulness, and spend free time to the benefit of the mind.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

I'm proud to have created a game where you can match pairs of words in absolutely any combination of languages. I am proud to have created an artificial intelligence that allows you to create dictionaries of any combinations of languages with almost complete exclusion of false variants based on carefully made translations Russian - foreign language and synonyms Russian-Russian. I just haven't seen apps with similar content

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

The main task is to expand the list of presented languages until all languages are in the application. Chinese, Japanese, Arabic, Korean... There is an idea to add a third to two games, but this is a distant prospect.

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

Don't forget there was a word in the beginning. Do not forget your native language. Repeat the foreign language. Spend your free time usefully. If you encounter a bug in the application, please write to me.
