Desktop Sprite for TOEFL iBT Words is a free desktop tool that displays the list of words that we should learn before taking the TOEFL Internet-based test. This utility resembles a banner, wherein the words from the necessary vocabulary, alphabetically organized, run from the right to the left side of the screen on a yellow background. One or two synonyms accompany most of the words. However, many commonly used words do not display any synonyms at all.

We can drag and drop the bar anywhere we like within the screen boundaries. We can also adjust the speed of the words scrolling. This user interface is quite basic, with just three options: the first one to make the banner run faster, the second one to make it go slower, and the last one to close the application. It is not possible to go backwards/forwards. We cannot copy/paste any word either.

The best thing is that this tool is free and it can help us refresh our vocabulary while taking a break. The disadvantage that I found is that after we set this program to close, a window pops up and displays the developer's products, and only after 10 seconds, the second "close" button appears.
