Spelling Test iconAt Corona, we’re always keen on educational apps that make learning fun. In the case of Spelling Test, parents can create personalized exams that coincide with a child’s spelling words from class.

Developed natively and released for iOS over two years ago, Spelling Bee’s creator wanted to take his app cross-platform, to allow more users to enjoy the learning experience. Spelling testTurning to Corona SDK, Fun Exam took advantage of the engine’s stellar cross-platform capabilities and ease of use.

Using Spelling Test, adding words, taking tests and seeing my scores was a breeze. I started by creating a “zoo animals” list and adding a short list of words to the collection. After typing in an individual word, for example “chimpanzee,” I recorded myself saying the word. Once I was ready to put my spelling skills to the test, I listened to a recording of each word and then typed it out using the app’s keyboard. Though, I should note that the app is best suited for parents to create a word list for their child, it never hurts to brush up on spelling as an adult!

After I completed the exam, I checked my score – it indicated the words I got right, and those that needed some practice. For parents looking to reinforce tough vocab words, this report is a great way to track a child’s success.

Spelling Test’s bright UI and ease of use makes a potentially tedious lesson enjoyable. And that’s exactly what parents look for when investing in educational content. Check out Spelling Test for iOS, Android, Kindle and NOOK.

    Very nice app

  2. It’s one of the few things that I think is becoming a little less relevant thanks to spell checkers. I for one would like to see one for adults, I know my spelling has gone down hill since using Word and Blogging platforms that spell check for me.
