RegisterVocabularySpellingCity now offers apps for use on Apple devices, Android devices, and Kindle devices. VocabularySpellingCity's app for the iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch was released in the summer of 2012. It may be downloaded to your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch from the App Store! VocabularySpellingCity released apps for Android devices (available from the Google Play Store) and for Kindle devices (available from the Amazon App Store) in early 2013.

The following learning games that are available free to all users: Spelling TestMe, HangMouse, TeachMe, Sentence Unscramble, Word Unscramble, Missing Letter, Alphabetize, Audio Word Match.

Premium Members can log in through the app and also get access to the following additional games and activities: Vocabulary TestMe, MatchIt Sentences, WhichWord Sentences, FlashCards, MatchIt Definitions, WhichWord Definitions, Parts of Speech, Word-O-Rama, Speedy Speller, Sentence Writing Practice and Paragraph Writing Practice.

To access lists on the site from the Android apps, non-Premium Members need to buy 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 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.

Both free and Premium Members can log in through any of the apps for easy access to their lists! Students of Premium Members can complete their Assignments through the app, and parents and teachers also have easy access to their students' records from the app through the browser.

Common FAQs - Mobile Apps

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 App Store) 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 App Store. We do not support Nook or 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 or iSwifter) on your device has been installed.
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. 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 buy 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 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.
iTunes
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 App Store also includes a link for customer reviews. We appreciate your feedback!
