Spell Bot

This is a simple, FREE (which is always good) app for parents to help their child with their weekly spelling tests. The parent records their own voice reading out each word, either on it's own or within a sentence. The recording is then saved and the parent types the correct spelling in.

This is repeated for anything upto 10 words ( in the free version). Once the words have all been recorded into Spell Bot.

All the child needs to then is tap the green start button listen to each word or sentence and then type in the correct spelling. They receive immediate feedback whether they got the spelling correct or not. If they got it wrong the correct spelling is displayed along with the spelling they entered.

It really is as simple as that. A summary screen is displayed at the end of the test showing how many correct answers were given and again allowing the child to compare the correct answer against any incorrect answers they may have given.

The app is universal being written for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

Give it a try…..it does exactly what it says on the tin.
