Vocabulary quizzes help you amplify your word bank
A wide-ranging and precise vocabulary sets you apart as a person who knows, um, stuff. Whether you're studying for top scores on a standardized test like the SAT, GRE, GMAT, or ASVAB, or you simply want your speech dressed to impress, picking up calculated verbal flourishes is the way to go. The PowerVocab Vocabulary app proposes to assist you in your linguistic quest.
The main function of the app is to serve you a series of multiple-choice quizzes in which you'll match the word with its correct definition. Tap the "hint" button to see the term in context. Any errors will be logged and subsequently available in the "Practice" section, where you'll also be able to access audio pronunciation of the words you're learning. Only one vocabulary pack is available with the free version; you'll have to pay to gain access to the "Advanced" and "Ultra" word lists.
You can also choose to "challenge" another player selected at random from the database. Since there's little communication that happens between you and the other guy, though, it feels less like the verbal version of Mortal Kombat and more like just a slight variation on the individual multiple choice quizzes.
The design is cluttered with ads for other apps by the same developer, and it could use some overall aesthetic work.
Trymph Inc.'s PowerVocab Vocabulary app isn't a bad place to start if you want quickfire vocabulary practice, but the limited word list and even more limited range of activities don't give it much replay value over time.
If you love vocabulary builder, word scramblers, crosswords, scrabble, spelling bee, word search, hangman, or other word games, you'll love this amazingly fun game. While having fun, you will master 350 challenging words using our adaptive learning software to build a lasting vocabulary using flashcards. Report your scores on Facebook or play word with friends online or with other players.
PowerVocab is specifically helpful for students of SAT, GRE, GMAT, and ASVAB, who are looking to substantially enhance their vocabulary into top tier. This app lets you build a lifelong critical skill without paying thousands of dollars.
The key app features are Learn words, Challenge quiz, and Search words which is like a handy dictionary. The words contain detailed definitions, multiple example sentences, and phonetic pronunciation of words. Audible pronunciation is also available if your cellphone is running on Android 1.6 or above. The dictionary like list is available for searching word definitions and sample sentences.
You will learn words displayed like a flashcard that allows words to be remembered visually. In addition, our proprietary software smartly uses word repetition and challenge tests to improve deep retention of the words in your memory to help you build a lasting vocabulary.
This is a word game that allows you to build expertise for scrabble, crosswords, anagrams, and other word games. Use it as an aid to prepare for contests like spelling bee, or improve on competitive exams such as SAT, GRE, or GMAT. Also allows you to wordsearch for all the words in a dictionary type application.
If you are updating from an existing version, please know that there is a possibility that a major upgrade that includes new words can result in reset of your learned words statistics, and loss of your progress. Minor upgrades such as with bug fixes or changes in background or graphics should not normally result in loss of progress or statistics if installed correctly.
The app is similar to word games by Zynga such as Words with Friends, and Hanging with Friends, or games such as WordFeud or Scrabble. Our multiplayer game mode allows you to simultaneously play a game with someone else unlike multiplayer in games by Zynga where there is a significant lag time. We have a dictionary of powerful and important words compared with a generic dictionary with apps like dictionary.com. If you love fun and addictive games like bubbleblast or Fruit Ninja, you'll love our word challenge game. Try it out!

Excellent word app!
Excellent for a person who wants to increase their vocabulary!!
This used to be a perfect app to enjoy learning with competition, now it is loaded with mediocre crap like 'Powerups' and a silly background with fishes and bubbles which is insanely annoying and childish I've recommended this app to IDK how many of my
Its very good app.
I like the new look ")
