• SpellBoard now supports iCloud Syncing, the Apple Pencil and iOS Split View •
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 used this app a few years ago for my twins and loved it but now that I'm trying to use it for my second grader I can't get it to work. I've entered his spelling words but the activity button is disabled and there is no way for him to take a quiz. Not user friendly at all and as is, completely useless. Such a shame because it used to be a good app.
Seems like you are missing the one step of selecting a quiz from the quizzes list. If you need additional help please contact email@example.com.
Nice idea, but . . . .
I wanted to take my son's spelling list, input it, and use this program to help him practice and test for his spelling test. It looks like it was built for that, and it is helpful. But it falls short - it will only let you practice once for each word by letting you write it or type it (not both as it shows on the screen shots). I want it to say it, spell it, say it, spell it, maybe even with an encouraging and funny voice? A little repetition would be helpful - something you could set up on the menus, so you don't have to repeat it if you don't want. In addition, when you go to the test, it will not read the writing - they have to type it. For a first grader, this could eat up a lot of keyboard learning time, rather than spelling practice. The background and screen is pretty dull looking too. It also does not have any kind of instruction or help file. That was really annoying. Especially for set up. I finally figured out that to input his spelling list, I had to add words that were already in their database, but in a different set of words. I couldn't import them. That's silly. So if they have a first grade spelling list, but the one his teacher gave him is for this week is a little different, I have to add ALL the words to his spelling list. Finally, it has a Word Scramble that has yet to work for us. It crashes the program every time. For $5? Not sure, but I bet there is something better out there for the money.
Truly a fantastic spelling app!!
First of all, we love this app!! With some tweaks and additions to the newest version it's Five stars for us! The only thing I'm not super fond of is the fact that the app automatically alphabetizes the quiz list and word lists. We enter the words in the order (numbered) that they are on my sons spelling words sheet and then they get mixed up by the alphabetization. Perhaps that should be an option?
It took me a bit of playing around and exploring to figure out how to sort word lists, but the new save sequence when entering words for a quiz makes everything a lot easier and productive. I also love, love, love, the option of adding a photo!!! That is a phenomenal option for children who have any learning challenges or even for younger children just starting out with spelling. It gives another level of association to words and spelling!
Thanks so much for a truly useful and enriching app! By the way… we also use and LOVE MathBoard!! Highly recommend both of these apps!!
