Hi, i can't understand the pop in or popped meaning. Would someone help me? 

Hi lukejr1993,

‘Pop in’ means ‘visit’ or ‘go into’ but only for a short time and without any special arrangement. For example, in the text Olivia says: “Just popped in to see Harry and Bindyu.” She means that she hasn’t come for a long visit but just to see them quickly.
You can also use ‘pop in’ to mean ‘go in’, again for a short time: ‘I popped into the shoe shop to see if they had any sandals’.

‘Popped in’ is the past simple form. One thing to remember if you use this verb is that the object always follows it, so it’s not a separable phrasal verb.
A good way to expand your vocabulary is to look at related words, so here you might take a look at some other phrasal verbs with ‘pop’, like ‘pop out’ and ‘pop round’. If you don’t know, try and guess what they might mean, and then check in the dictionary on the right of the page (just type in the word you’re looking for):
Here’s another page that might help you with these words.
Best wishes,

It is typical sentence (,slang')in real word is often use in real conversation between young people when are a mates..(it is something similar to...I just coming for a short time (I ll be here few minutes too check How are you, is everything well, to see you to be sure that you are good)..I came very fast (I was running)I only check and I ll go out!!!
