Carefully crafted by expert tutors with over ten years of experience, this app provides you with the information you need to improve your vocabulary and prep for the GRE test (as well as others). While this app was created to help students become familiar with the terms used in these tests, anybody can use it to build their vocabulary.

The app is categorized by specific tests, and the sections within each category vary from basic to advanced. Once you open up one of the sections, you will go through a series of words that need to be matched with the correct meaning. When you choose your answer, the definition and an example sentence are revealed, as well as whether you answered correctly. There is also an option to hear the word pronounced. If the word was incorrectly matched, it will appear several more times until it is mastered. Each section contains many levels that build upon each other and unlock once prior levels are completed.

I think Vocabulary Builder is a valuable app for those who need to learn specific terms that will appear on certain tests. It doesn’t fall into the “game” category as far as apps go, but it is definitely high up there on the must-have list for studying and test prep apps!
