Whether you are a student, teacher or parent, we all know the weekly spelling drill. Monday, we get our weekly words. Wednesday, we have our pre-quiz and Friday is the spelling test. Of course, during the week there are endless impromptu spelling quizzes, – at home, in the car, at dinner, before bed – you get the idea. Well, all that just changed – say hello to SpellBoard!
SpellBoard allows you to create any spelling quiz in any language. That's right, you could even use this for your Spanish class!
SpellBoard adds fun activities to your custom spelling lists. Including Word Search, Word Scramble, Alphabetize, Word/Sentence Matching, and Missing Letter puzzles.
SpellBoard provides a fast and intuitive way for you to enter your list of spelling words. All you need to do is enter the word (correctly spelled) and the grade level. SpellBoard will take it from there using iOS's built in speech technology* to quiz you on the words (if desired/needed you can record audio in your own voice as well). Optionally, you can enter a phrase for the word, an image, antonyms and/or synonyms and notes for the word. That's it! Now you are ready to study your words and be quizzed on them.
SpellBoard also adds fun activities to your custom spelling lists. Including Word Search, Word Scramble, Alphabetization, Word/Sentence Matching as well as Missing Letter puzzles.
And possibly best of all, you can share your quizzes with other SpellBoard users, that means only one person needs to enter the weeks spelling words and then share it with other SpellBoard, SpellBoard Buddy, or even SpellBoard Mac users.
Additionally, SpellBoard allows for multiple student profiles so you can track the performance of any student across any number of quizzes. You can also track how well multiple students perform against a particular quiz.
SpellBoard also has a study mode where you can walk through a quiz seeing and hearing the word and phrase. You can practice writing the word on the virtual white board or connect to Wordnik to get a definition for the word.
Give yourself the added advantage, add SpellBoard to your learning toolbox.

Ratings and Reviews
I've been looking for a spelling app for a while now and this is the first to meet the needs of both my nine year old and my 6 year old. Easy to set up spelling lists, study, then take the quizzes. My kids have both French and English spelling tests for school and this is now their favorite way to practice!
Avec cette appli, mon fils ne négocie plus les périodes d’étude. Évidemment, les contrôles se sont améliorés beaucoup.
I was really enthused about this app when I read about it. I thought it would be a great study tool for my son who has weekly spelling tests. It was expensive but I thought I'd give them the benefit of the doubt. Unfortunately, I find that it falls short. The biggest frustration is that the keyboard sometimes disappears during the test and the nay thing you can do is stop the test and start over. My son has given up on this app due to this problem, he gets very frustrated. Also, there is no way to actually view a test after it has been taken. Due to the keyboard problem, I was attempting to see which words he had done and which he didn't and it only tells you that he didn't attempt all the words, but it doesn't tell you which ones were not done and which ones were done. I give them kudos for the effort. The concept is great, but I think the app just isn't mature, and as such, they really should lower the price. Its expensive for what you get...
