Though this app is not likely to get kids excited, the definitions in uVocab - Vocabulary Trainer are concise and well-written, and the word list seems to be an excellent test-prep list, with words such as "conglomeration," "stygian," and "natation." The results of each quiz are saved, allowing kids to track their progress, and missed words are marked (as "failed," unfortunately) so they can be included on future quizzes. Kids can mark some words as favorites too. Kids have the options to customize font size for easier reading and can choose which online dictionary to use for Web searches, should they choose to further research a particular word. The pronunciation feature is hit or miss, with a few words pronounced incorrectly.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
