VocabularySpellingCity is a fun way to learn spelling and vocabulary words by playing engaging learning games using any word list. The most popular activities are Spelling TestMe, HangMouse, and our vocabulary games, available to Premium Members. The most popular word lists are Sound Alikes, Compound Words, Hunger Games and SAT Words. The free app includes ten of our most popular word lists and eight of our most popular learning games and activities.

Spelling TestMe is a spelling test that reads each word aloud, uses it in a sentence, and repeats the word. Students can work at their own pace and receive instant feedback upon submitting the completed test.

HangMouse is a VocabularySpellingCity favorite that lets children decode each word in a friendly version of traditional Hangman. Kids love trying to figure out the word before the cat catches the mouse.

MissingLetter is a fun game for kids of all ages. Even the youngest learners can practice letter recognition by trying to find the missing letter that completes each spelling or vocabulary word.

Alphabetize is an activity that can be used to practice putting words in alphabetical order (more commonly known as ABC order), a vital early literacy skill. Students love to play ABC order activities and games.

Spelling TeachMe is a great activity to introduce a new word list to students. Each word is read aloud, spelled letter-by-letter and used in a context-rich sentence.

Sentence Unscramble helps students practice sentence structure as well as using words in context by unscrambling words to form a complete sentence.

Word Unscramble is a popular word game that is a variation on other word games such as text twists, jumbles and anagrams.

With a Premium Membership or the Mobile Pass, students can access any of the hundreds of thousands of word lists available on VocabularySpellingCity including lists created by their parents or teachers. Premium Membership includes nine additional premium vocabulary and spelling activities as well as student records and assignments. Mobile Pass holders get access to two of the nine premium activities.

Custom word lists may be entered online by registered parents or teachers (registration is free) for use in the games and activities on VocabularySpellingCity’s app.

Doesn't work... No-go for Samsung Galaxy Note Edge. White screen only that locks up the phone. Very disappointing. Please fix this because it would be great for my kid in private school.

John Bivens

Note 4 Never has worked on Note 4 other than giving white screen. Tried reinstalls as well. Works fine on S4 and 4 different tablets and computer. Is required for school and does work WHEN it works on other devices . But since unable to use on our two Note 4's is worthless when we want our child to use it away from home on our phone. Until fixed I CAN NOT recommended this app.

Keri Duffy

Doesn't worm It won't work on my note 4. What's the point in having it if it doesn't work..... #annoyed

Maria Maltsberger

Won't work on G3. I've heard such great things about this app, so I was very disappointed that it doesn't work with my G3.

Mindy Bocardo

Does not work! I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 4. It only opens a white screen and then freezes. It will not work if I try and access through Internet as it says flash required. My son is required to complete his homework on this site and he is behind becuase we can not access site from any of our devices. Please fix.

Brandi Stager

Loved it but not so much anymore When I had my LG Optimus G Pro it worked perfectly now that I upgraded to the LG G3 it doesn't work, only opens to a white screen. Super bummed I preferred my daughter play on this than other games

Dolphin Swimmer

White screen on Droid Turbo I love Spelling City. Kids use it all the time on computer. It used to work on my Samsung Galaxy S3, but it just gives me a white screen on my Droid Turbo. Will give 5 stars once it's fixed.

Caitlin Cunningham

Amazing! If my kid looses their Spelling List-TO MOMMY'S I-PAD WE GO!

Melissa Lewis

Log in time out The log in constantly times out and will not allow me to login. I even purchased the premium membership thinking that was the problem but it didn't help. Very disappointing!

Cand S

Spelling City Awesome. I sync it with my laptop. Kids practice in the car and I don't have to read them spelling words!

Justin Gardner

doesn't work on Samsung Galaxy tab pro disappointing after claims they'd made it work with android!

Erica Crawford

Great website for kids. You have to buy the mobile pass for $2 if you want to login your account and use your custom spelling lists. I was able to pay using Amazon coins after I installed spelling city from the Amazon appstore.

Claire Hanham

British spelling version please Since so many countries use UK spelling it would be awesome to have a version that uses it.

Sophia Kopp

Its STUPID Too much errors, no good games, messes up the keyboard, and in my opinion, it doesn't really help me much!


Awesome app! We can use it on the go. Not excused from homework by not bringing spelling words home!

Aaron Atia

Not working on Samsung Galaxy Edge. I only get a white screen. I tried everything to fix but to no avail. It is a software compatibility issue. Please fix asap. Thanks

Kimberly Gardner Groves

Doesn't work on note 4 I have been using this app for almost 2 years until I purchased the note 4 and realized it doesn't work on my phone. But it works on my other Androids so I am disappointed that I won't be able to use it on my phone. Please fix and I will update my review. I have paid the yearly fee in order to use the app. PLEASE FIX.

Mark Wright

Cindy Alme

It's worthless on Android It's just a white screen. It never loads. Their search capability is crap too. If you have an account you can't load lists unless you add that you are a teacher-user. They need new developers. It's getting more complicated and crappier every year.

rachel campbell

Helps me at school This app is amazing and it really helps cause we are allowed to bring are own devises to school and it is fun but very educational.?

Jenn Ramsey

Doesn't work on my Note 4 Just get a white screen. Please fix this as my son's teacher wants us using this app to help him read better

Linda Laugherty

The hangman game does not teach kids to try to spell or sound out words, only guess. It should be more engaging.

Will Lovelady

Note4 white screen Fix this and you'll have something. App works great on other devices.

Monique Williams

Spelling city help me pass my test Awesome

Home Harwell

T Holmes

What happened! It previously worked ok on my Samsung gx 3 but now its a blank white screen on my Note5? Please fix.. my daughter uses it and it helps her..


Good spelling app but not working in lollipop My son has been using this app to learn his spelling about 2 years ago. It has served its purpose well. Recently, I paid to become a premium member so as to make full use of all its features. The only problem now is that the app does not work in my Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 running on Lollipop 5.0.2 (blank screen). It is still working fine on my older Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 running on Jellybean 4.1.2. Hope this gets fixed soon.

Shelley Watts

White screen... no go! It doesn't work on the Galaxy S5 either. Really disappointed that they haven't fixed this problem yet. I am a paying member of the site and should be able to get some use out of it on my phone as well as chromebook.

Jill Mercer

Please fix! All i get it is a white screen on a samsung s6. Please fix my daughter uses this app for school for her assignments

Ryan Norman

Ragonk All I see when I open the app is a white screen. Please fix this because my daughter would like to use this to study her words.

Amanda Walburg

Not working. Please fix. My daughter needs this for school and I'm only getting the blank white screen for Samsung Galaxy s6

HK Simmon

Robert Hel

Just a white screen All white on my note 5 and tablet please fix since you Already ruined my life enough

Joy Knight

White screen on Galaxy Note 4 Does not work on my Galaxy Note 4 just goes to a white screen when I click on the app. I have used this app on my iPad and kids Samsung tablets and has worked great. We love Spelling City and will continue to use. Would really like to be able to use it on my phone so kids can use in the car. Please fix soon!

Jeff Takarsh

Does not work, white screen As others have reported, this app does not work on Samsung S6 Active phones. Shows a white screen only. Disappointed that my child was unable to use the app to study for his spelling test. His teacher is using spelling city for his spelling test.

Tiffany Epps

Does Not Work I don't hate spelling city online, but the app doesn't work on all devices. It doesn't work on my Note4 phn, but works on my old LG... I'd rather gave it on the phn that I use...

stephanie walker

Doesn't work Just a blank white screen. I also have a note 4. Please help.

Anthony Cassel

Pretty good but can be better I use this in school and we have homework that we do on this. The one thing I didn't like was it doesn't have the one game I like.

Kelly Phillips

Not loading We use this online for my daughter and love it. So I decided to download the app on my phone. When I click on the app, it's only a white screen. If it could be corrected for bugs/issues, I will gladly do more stars because it is a great program to help children with spelling words. Also, I have an LG-G3 and will be witching to a galaxy S6 soon....

Jenifer Huffman

White screen Just like everyone else is reporting. All I get is the white screen. This app is totally useless. Wish they'd fix the problem. It looks like it's been doing this for awhile.

Lori chaltry

Blank white screen Like many others have listed, on my Samsung galaxy S6, I just get a blank white screen. Why even offer an app that doesn't work ? Pitiful. And based on previous comments, this is not a new issue. It obviously doesn't work and they can't fix it. It's a shame because my daughter really wants to do it.

Rosemary Brown

Galaxy S5 Doesn't work on phone. Bought yearly premium to go mobile and use as other state for homework and time management (getting work done while car pooling). Save your money.

Amber Wellman

Blank white screen My daughter uses this website for school would really love for her to be able to use it on my phone when we aren't home around the lap top but everytime I click on the app it's just a white screen.

Annabel Fields

Disappointing I have a Samsung Galaxy S6 and just downloaded the app. My daughter likes it on my computer and wanted to play the games outside of the house. But all I get is a blank white screen with a circle at the bottom with three dots in it. I'm very disappointed with the app.

will parris

Just installed it on my Note 4 and I'm getting the white screen. Worked last year on my S4, hopefully the team will be able to fix it quickly so my daughter can do her homework anywhere.

Niana Renee

Smh Paid 1.99 b/c I wanted to add my child words. Froze up and not running now.

Melissa Sheffield

Premium Member We have used Spelling City online on my computer for years. It is a great program. I was looking forward to the app, but on my Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Just the dreaded WHITE SCREEN! Please fix, students are counting on you!

Karen Moore

Does not work...all I can see when I open the app is a blank white screen, please fix ASAP!!

Jazzmine Pittman

School work I was pretty excited when my son's spelling practice work was assigned on spelling city because he responds really well to screen learning, but when I downloaded this on my droid turbo it's nothing but a blank white screen. Totally useless.

Crystal m

Doesnt work My daughters school uses this app and everytime I try to open it there is a white blank screen. I have a samsung note 4 please fix or I will not be able to purchase premium package

Lisa Marie

Won't work White screen is all I get :-( I'm a premium member on the laptop and really wanted this for my kids on the go.

Ginger Carter Skoog

So Sad: Love, but Kindle Glitchy, Broken on Nexus App has been amazing for my 2nd grader. A complete turn around in a couple weeks after starting to use. Love that I can load lists, and found published lists for the spelling book used at school. (Worth the small $$ investment to us.) BUT, I got a new device and now all I get is a white screen! PLEASE FIX THIS! Beside the fact I paid to the able to use the service, my child really needs this tool. (Edited: As of this past week, even the Kindle version is glitching badly. Definitely, something not right with the service...)

Angela Hutcherson

White Screen Lock-Up My was so excited but we just get the white screen that locks up the phone too. Sad. Here's an idea, remove it from the Play Store until you get an app that actually works!

Jean-Paul Parkhill

Doesn't Work Like so many others, my son uses it for school, but on my Android G3 all I get is a white screen. Emails to correct the problem went unanswered. Too bad they do not seem interested in rectifying the problem.

Kim Jacobs

Blank white screen The fact that they continue to offer this app without even addressing this issue (which is obviously widespread among users) is extremely disappointing. Reading the reviews apparently the company doesn't care to clean up this problem. I have an LGG3. Downloaded the app because all my grandson talked about was Hang Mouse. I'm frustrated. He is upset and disappointed. Add us to nearly 1k others....FIX THIS!!

Heather Garza

Doesn't work My son's school said to use this for their spelling but once installed it only shows a white screen and nothing more. Please fix this so my son can begin using

Sawyer Pierson

Glitchy This app works perfectly on my mom's iPad but I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 and it's not working correctly you can only do some of the games the other ones just say loading but they never load please fix.

Cyndi Clifford

PLEASE FIX. I'M EAGER TO TRY THE APP blank white screen when I try to access app from my Droid Turbo

Susan McCann

Doesn't work Just have a blank white screen when I try to open the app. I have a samsung galaxy 6

Nicole Fraking

Stopped working I pay for a premium account for my son's school/homework. It worked just fine on my galaxy s5 but now with the s7 edge, it's just a white screen. Based on the other comments, this is not a new problem. Fix the app and stop stealing people's money!

Denise McGowan

Don't work! It's not working but it did on my phone it's just a white blank page, please fix and I will give 5 stars!

Evelyn Ingraham

Super Fun I downloaded this app because I remember playing this app on the computer back in elementary school. I loved this app, so I downloaded it. I like how you get to chose the difficulty and the spelling game. I don't like how sometimes the answer is WAY too easy. I like problems for my age. Mostly I love this app. The other app I downloaded is called IQ quiz. In that app, you try to guess what the synonym means. I prefer Spelling City better because it is much more fun and has a bigger variety of choices.

Marjorie Mansfield

Premium Member and app not working I am a premium member and have Galaxy Note5 which just comes up as a white screen. Have multiple children in my house and was setting up different devices to use for spelling. Very disappointed that I've paid for the device and it does not work

Diana Kennedy

White screen? Just downloaded this onto my Note 4 and have nothing but a blank white screen, regardless of how long I wait. Very disappointing, I would really like to see how this works, I was even thinking of a membership since we homeschool. Guess I won't be spending my money here. Please fix this.

Nicole Fraking

Stopped working I pay for a premium account for my son's school/homework. It worked just fine on my galaxy s5 but now with the s7 edge, it's just a white screen. Based on the other comments, this is not a new problem. Fix the app and stop stealing people's money!.. update..another school year where a premium account is required...another school year where this app is unusable.

Steve Vargo

Hasn't been fixed in the past year Stared emailing about the white screen a year ago on my Note 4, was told to reinstall. Its a known problem but obviosly nothing has been done. Tried again with the same problem. Giving up, we will have to go back to using pen and paper.

Courtney Karadeniz

Even though this is available for Android it is not compatible. It was a waste of time to download. It is required by my daughter's teacher and I thought it'd be a productive way to spend our commute to school by having it on my phone. That is not an option though. Unfortunately I have to continue using this app on our ipad due to her classroom requirements (not all families have this alternate choice). I would not recommend this to anyone and have informed her teacher that another options may be better so all parents can use the resource.

Kelly Phillips

Not loading UPDATE AUGUST 2016: its been a year, we redownloaded & still a white screen? Will this ever be fixed? Im a premium member & would like all of the of benefits. Original 2015:We use this online & love it. I decided to download the app on my phone. clicked on the app.. white screen. If it could be corrected for bugs/issues, I will gladly do more stars because it is a great program to help children with spelling words.

Michelle Stahnke

Does Not Work I am so disappointed. I just purchased a Premium membership so my daughter could work on her spelling on-the-go. It gives me nothing on my Galaxy Note 5 except a blank white screen which locks up my phone.

Eric Horton

Unsupported. Do not install! The Android version of this app doesn't seem to function on KitKat or Lollipop devices. If you have one, don't pay or install this. It doesn't work. Further more, the app has not been supported since 2014. Any device or issue since then has not received support. The website requires flash, so modern Android device users are completely out of luck. (unfortunately, my son's school requires it's use, so that is really unfortunate.)

J Loehlein

Android user Display does not rotate as screen is rotated. Only landscape version is viewable however part of the screen is always cut off on my 5" screen. Therefore app is unusable. Too bad. Would love to access it on my phone for my 3rd grader to use.

Kristen Blaylock

Blank screen Would you guys please fix your app. Have you abandoned it? You have so many one star reviews because everyone just gets a white screen upon launching the app. This used to be such a great app.

Amanda Yara

Please Fix Only a white screen on Galaxy 6. Son's school uses and it's a great app but we can't use it. Downloaded months ago and it still hasn't been fixed. Please do so SOON than you will get 5 stars.

Just a blank white screen I think we would love this app. I have a brand new galaxy s7. Just shows up a blank white screan. Bummer. Works on the laptop but I need it mobile for 6year olds homework. Hope there is a fix!

Jaime WArd

Will not work It worked just great on my galaxy note 4. Now I have the galaxy edge+ and all I'm getting is a blank white screen. My kid needs to get his work done ASAP fix it well going on two months and it still does the same thing.....................

Tracy Ziska

Blank Screen - Like Most Everyone I, too, have the white screen of death that most everyone does and it would appear that the dev either didn't notice or doesn't care. Noticing that most people with a Samsung report the issue and I'm no exception with a Note 5. I guess they won't be getting their in app purchses, so good luck with those sales when you can't get there.

Theresa Pappas

I am unable to use the application on my Samsung phone. I have read other reviews that are similar. Is there anything that I can do? My son's teacher recommends it for school. Very disappointed.

Tana Ricke

Blank white screen I use Spelling City with our homeschool and recently became a premium member. I downloaded the app so we can use Spelling City a much as possible. Unfortunately, when the app is opened it only has a blank white screen. I'm extremely disappointed.

Jasmyne Muhammad

My daughter needed this app for her 4th grade class assignment. Only shows a blank screen on my Galaxy S6. My husbands iPhone won't download the app. So much for getting things down while away from home.

Kimberly Hunter

Don't work I have a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ and all I see is a white screen as well. Can you kindly fix this problem. My daughter needs to complete her assignments... URGENT!!!!

Jenn Watkins

Galaxy Tab2 White Screen While the app works 9n my older phone with android 4.4.2 with no problems however on the Tab 2 with Android 6.0.2, all I am getting is a white screen. Obviously a well known issue, and NO UPDATES from the manufacturer. HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED as my son's school uses thus app.

Na S.

App will not work We use spelling city on the computer but thought the app would be nice too but it will not work. It just goes to a blank white screen every time. Please fix this issue so we can use the app. Thank You

Shawn Harris

Won't open... This application was recommended by my daughter's first grade teacher, so I downloaded it. But I've tried four times to open the app, and I just get a gray screen every time. Guess I'll uninstall. Looks like others are having the same issue.

Kim Burke

White screen on Samsung Galaxy S6 Come on programmers, this shouldn't be going on for months! Used the site 2 years ago via desktop and loved it. Now want to use it again via desktop and mobile and no-go. Was going to upgrade to premium but no way now.

Maureen Thompson

Not working on 6Edge I used this all last school year for my child on my S3 with very few problems....Now I had to upgrade my phone and have 2 children who need this for school and all I get is a blank white screen...PLEASE FIX AND UPDATE!! We are an extremely busy family and this app allows us to be mobile and still get homework done efficiently!!! Will update rating when fixed!

J Powell

Doesn't work on S7 White screen. Very frustrating. We are paid premium members and want to be able to use on phone too like we used to on our older phones.

Kimberly Miller

What in the world happened?! This app WAS amazing! WAS. Helped improved my daughter's attitude towards studying her spelling and vocabulary. For the past few weeks it has just been a BLANK WHITE screen. I'm very upset. Not just because I PAID, but because my daughter showed such improvement with this app. Please FIX IT ASAP!
