Spellosaur is the perfect way for kids to learn their spelling words - it's fun and it works.
First you enter the words to learn. Unlike other apps that are limited to a set of fixed words, with Spellosaur you enter the words you want to learn - this can be your weekly spelling list, or just a set of words that you have been struggling to learn.
Spellosaur makes learning their words more fun with a set of games to help progressively learn each spelling - listen and choose the correct word, complete the word by adding the missing letters, plus re-arrange the letters to make the word.
Spellosaur has two voices to select from - English and US English - plus a new feature to record your own pronunciation if you wish - a new feature for parents and teachers who may want to emphasize a word differently.
You can also test yourself on your word list just like you would at school - listen to the word, then spell it, then the app will report which you got correct and incorrect at the end of the test.
Each time you enter a new word list your prior words are saved for future review - so you can track how many words you have learned and keep practicing them if you like.
This app is free so you can see how well it works.
You will have the option to upgrade to the premium version of the app - with the premium version you can:
- have multiple users, each with their own word list;
- have as many words as you like in the list you are learning; and
-save your words for future reference and testing.
After you upgrade you can have the full app on as many devices under the same iTunes user name as you like. Just choose 'upgrade' on the other devices, iTunes will confirm that you have already paid and you will not charged again.
*** Please note: if you delete and reload the app you will need to unlock it again. You will not be charged twice - just click upgrade, iTunes will confirm that you have already paid and the app will be unlocked. This is the issue some users describe below in comments. ***
