Flocabulary's Mobile App

 An introduction to the app

We launched our app for iOS and Android to bring Flocabulary’s video library to parents and their kids. The app experience includes access to all videos in the Flocabulary library, plus a challenge activity, lyrics and glossary. Classroom features like Read & Respond, Lyric Lab and assignments are not part of the mobile app. 

Here’s a quick side-by-side comparison chart:

Who can log in to the app?

For Educators

Access to the Flocabulary app is built into existing school, district and Lite subscriptions and trials. As an educator, the best way to get access to the Flocabulary app is by purchasing a Flocabulary school subscription. This provides all teachers and students with the most robust Flocabulary experience (including access to our instructional tools like Lyric Lab, reading passages, assignments, lesson plans and more), and also includes free access to the app. 

 

Here’s a breakdown:

For Parents

The Flocabulary mobile app is a great way to bring our library of 850+ educational hip-hop videos to children anytime, anywhere. We offer a handful of free videos with every download, and all units are available for parents through our mobile plan ($1.99/month).

What features are in the app?

The app is broken into three tabs:

Tab Name

Description

Featured

The “Featured” section is the first thing you see when logging in to the Flocabulary app. It shows a list of all of our current Subjects and a select few units, ordered by relevance, to your selected grade.


You can scroll through the list of units in each carousel or, alternatively, click “see all” on any given subject and be brought into that subject in the “Explore” tab.

Explore

The “Explore” section allows users to navigate from broad subjects into narrower topics to find more specific units.

Account

Within the “Account” section, you can find the following:

Grade Level: The Flocabulary app tailors content based on the grade level selected in the “Featured” tab carousel videos and the list of units under “Topics” in the “Explore” section.

Parental Controls: By enabling Parental Controls, you'll ensure that only content specifically for children in grades K-5 are seen by your child/student. 

Subscription Info: This section clarifies which type of Flocabulary subscription you have (website subscription vs. app subscription).

Privacy Policy and Terms of Use: Read the latest version of our privacy policy and terms of use.

Sign Off: We hate to see you go, but click here if you want to log out of your current account.

 

Are you planning to build in the website features into the app?

The Flocabulary app was built to support parents and their children to learn with Flocabulary at home. We are not planning to add classroom features like Vocab Cards, Read & Respond, etc. to the mobile app at this time. Stay tuned for more features and additions to the Flocabulary app in the coming months!
