When I first started to review this app, I’ll admit I had mixed feelings. Some of the buzzwords had me flashing back to undergraduate business school with the management and marketing terms flying around.
I found it a bit boring (I had heard 99% of these buzzwords in college or via work e-mail). Then I realized-hey, I’m NOT the target market for Business Buzzwords. So who is?
1) College students just entering the workforce
2) Experienced adults facing career changes & needing to adjust to new lingo
3) Newbies in general to the workforce.
If you’ve been in the modern workforce for awhile, chances are you’ve heard these words already and this app won’t help you.
However, if you fit into any of the above categories, this app may be something you want to check out.
What I do like about this app:
- Graphics are clean and simple-this is a verbal/word app, nothing to distract from the definition, which is good
- buzzword list -lets you find a word/phrase/abbreviation alphabetically (helpful if you have heard or seen the word/phrase but aren’t familiar with it or how to spell it
- Random buzzword-lets you page through random buzzwords to keep you up to date
- Favorites-You can save your favorites in case there are certain buzzwords that you hear repeatedly
What I don’t like about this app:
- I think the app could be more advanced than it is-for example having quizzes or something similar to test the knowledge of the user
- There are grammar errors/mistakes-sorry, but a pet peeve of mine. If you’re going to have an app that’s language-based/vocabulary-based, make sure someone does more than just spell-check (which doesn’t catch everything, by the way)
Recommend? See the categories/groups of users that I mentioned above. If you fall into any of those categories then this app could be quite useful for you.
