The Vocabador iPhone application is ideal for students studying for the SAT, the GRE or for anyone looking to boost their vocabulary. Combining the theme of Lucha Libre wrestling with over 400 powerful vocabulary words, Vocabador offers a fresh approach to learning that will help you build some serious vocabulary muscle!
There are two modes to the application:
1. VOCAB TRAINING: Allows you to study 400+ vocabulary words using virtual flashcards that are broken down into three levels of difficulty: Lightweight, Middleweight and Heavyweight words.
The front of each flashcard displays the study word, a button to hear the pronunciation of the word and a button to flag or unflag the word. The back of the flashcard displays the part of speech, the definition, antonyms, synonyms and a sentence that puts the word in context.
2. VOCAB CHALLENGE: Once you are ready to test your vocabulary prowess, you can switch to Vocab Challenge mode. There are a total of 12 wrestlers you can choose to battle, organized by vocabulary weight-class. Each wrestler will quiz you on the definitions of 36 unique words.
When you have defeated all wrestlers from each weight-class, you are qualified to battle the Vocabador for the Vocabulary Championship title!
So, jump in the ring, learn some vocabulary and prepare to take down The Vocabador!

Ratings and Reviews
I am an SAT/ACT tutor and, after reviewing at least a dozen similar apps, have selected this app for my students with iPhones. Good word selection (about 440 words) - excellent (!) definitions, synonyms, antonyms, sentences, and pronunciation.
I could do without the gimmick of the wrestling matches, but the kids like them. The app does a good job allowing kids to mark and review unknown words, but it’s not possible to test only marked words.
And in response to prior reviews - you CAN replay the challenges. Maybe that’s new.
Awesome and interesting. Love the graphics- makes learning fun. Should be tons more like it. Don't understand what's up with all the boring flash cards on other vocabulary apps- there should be more fun and interactive learning apps like this one!!! Helping me get ready for the GRE.
Conceptually, this is app is brilliant.
It’s a fun and clever way to build your vocabulary. My only complaint is the audio file that reads the words. It constantly deletes itself. If you want to hear the vocabulary words, you have keep downloading the audio file. Developers can you please look into this?
