How can I tell if the VocabularySpellingCity app is going to work on my device?
The information page for each app (in the App Store, Google Play Store and Amazon Appstore) includes information on system requirements. Please refer to these before downloading the app. Please note that to use the VocabularySpellingCity app on a Kindle device, it must be downloaded from the Amazon Appstore. We do not support Nook devices at this time.
Can my children use the app when we are on the road?
Games and activities may be played using the sample lists provided on the app at any time; however, a wi-fi connection is required to access your personal lists through the app. If you wish to have your children complete activities using your lists, while you are connected to wi-fi, you can load your lists, along with the activities you want them to complete. As long as you do not close out of the app, the loaded lists and activities should stay in the memory and be accessible offline until the app is shut down.
Does the app include all of the games and activities available on the website?
Our mobile app includes most of the games available on our site; however, there are a few activities that are not available through the app. These activities may be accessed through the browser on your device, provided that an app that enables Adobe Flash (such as Puffin Web Browser) on your device has been installed (if your device does not automatically support Flash).
I purchased a Mobile Pass, but my device is not recognizing it! How can I get the Mobile Pass back on my device?
If you have previously purchased a Mobile Pass, but your device is not recognizing your purchase, make sure that you are logged into your Google Play or Amazon account and click on the Store button and then Restore Purchases. This will restore your Mobile Pass on the device.
How can I tell which activities are compatible with the app when creating my assignments?
When you go to select activities to include in your assignment, you will see that VocabularySpellingCity has included icons to indicate which activities are not compatible with our app. You can also refer to our Availability Chart by clicking here.
Please note that if you include any of these activities within your assignment, your students will either need to complete them on a computer or through the browser on your mobile device (that has an app installed that enables Flash on the device [see above]).
I have a free VocabularySpellingCity account. Can I access my word lists on the Android app?
To access lists on the site from the Android apps (available from the Google Play Store and the Amazon App Store), non-Premium Members need to purchase the $1.99 Mobile Pass. This product gives users a low-cost way to access lists on the site. As a bonus, the Mobile Pass provides access to additional sample word lists, plus two additional games on the app: Word-O-Rama and WhichWord Sentences. Unlike Premium Membership, the Mobile Pass is not a subscription and never expires.
How do I rate or review the app?
Once you've downloaded the VocabularySpellingCity app to your Apple Device, log into your iTunes account and go to our app page in iTunes to rate and review the app. Android users can also rate the app directly through the Google Play Store (when logged in). VocabularySpellingCity's app page in the Amazon Appstore also includes a link for customer reviews. We appreciate your feedback!
