My Spellings

MySpellings-Promo-Skyscraper My Spellings is an app that lets you practice your spelling using tests. It lets you use your voice to record the words, and then you have to type the word correctly. You can set up multiple 'tests,' and record lists of words for practice and testing, which seems like it would be incredibly useful to parents of school-aged children, or even for your own practice.
