I love this. Clean simple interface. Wonderful words every day. Perfect for my needs! The BEST vocabulary app out there.
Audio function broken 2/5
Just downloaded this app only to find the audio button to the right of the word doesn't work. Kinda defeats the point of the app for me. Would be cool otherwise. UPDATE: it's definitely your app and not my phone. I can show a screenshot with the volume bar maxed out if you don't believe me
Works great! 4/5
To nice basic program that doesn't have any issues and drop a word when you want to get something new.
Easy to use! 5/5
Super easy to use, the new word of the day even pops up as a notification if you haven't checked it yet that day.
Can I have another 5/5
This app is great? Easy to use and the audio pronunciations are excellent!
Audio does not work 4/5
Love the app. Please fix audio.
I love this app! Helps increase vocabulary. Only thing that I'm not a fan of is the audio doesn't work unless I have headphones in😕 but other than that it's awesome!
By Egypt P.
Love it! Great for improving your vocab you Larry, I can say I have stand quite a few people. Thanks
By Weathering the storm
I love this application. It's a wonder tool to increase knowledge.
Superior app for the seeker of knowledge! 5/5
This app is a work of art for today's world. Having matriculated over two decades ago it's quite refreshing to receive new words daily and incorporate them into my general conversation. I get trapped into using the same small words as I come into contact to and repeat; but thanks to this app and my busy lifestyle, once again go back to putting more thought into and having much more creative, interesting, and stimulating conversations.
Download the app, listen to the words, write them down and incorporate them into your daily routine. Learning is exciting, remembering is monumental, rewiring your brain to think before you speak can save you in many many ways.
Love it! 4/5
Love that it easy to use. The randomizing of words is a very nice feature as well.
Audio doesn't work 3/5
Otherwise great app.
Love it , great words and enjoy that you can "love them " and it'll save to your favorites so you can always go back and reread them !
I love this app and I love learning new words. I use it almost every day. But with the update, I hate how you share the words. It comes out as an obnoxious ad for the app. And you can barely read the actual definition in the shared image because half the image is trying to get you to download the app.
I used to share words with my friends all the time but I probably won't be doing that much anymore.
great app 5/5
By ten said555
great app new words everyday
Too many ads 2/5
OK app, but the ads are obnoxious. Will be deleting.
New Update Means Obtrusive Ads 2/5
By Don't wanna be a fish anymore
An app like this should not have ads that pop up every time you open the app, that's ridiculous. If this were an app that you'd use for 10+ min at a time, that might justify obnoxious ads that take 10-15 seconds to close. But because the average person uses this app for approx 30 sec at a time for a very minor function, ads that monopolize the entire screen are really quite inexcusable. Will just use dictionary.com for this now.
Don't download this app 1/5
They don't answer support mail, they've started popup adds, and every word is capitalized whether it should be or not. You can't close some of the ads. Find something else and skip this.
How to pronounce the words does not work 3/5
The function of the app pronouncing the words does not work. My volume is all the way up but it does not say the word to me. I took 2 stars away from this because if you can't pronounce a word it makes knowing the definition utterly useless. Please fix this and I will be very happy.
The sound wasn't working but received a message from them and it was put on vibration mode that's why I couldn't hear the pronunciation. Otherwise, love the app.
Love it 5/5
My new favorite app. Very streamline and simple to use.
I wanted to feel smart 5/5
This app is amazing. I've already found for favorites and I just downloaded it five minutes ago. I really recommend this to anyone who is trying to improve their vocabulary and their confidence when speaking to adults with high intelligence.
This is the best vocabulary app I have come across. I love it!
Simple and effective. 5/5
This app has everything you need. Love the most recent update. Growing my vocabulary one day at a time!
I'm a high schooler and I want to expand my vocabulary so I downloaded this app to help me learn more words and what they mean instead of always needing to turn to a dictionary.
Clean, simple and functional 5/5
This is one of the best app. in it' category. It is very simple to use and has good functions and features. I would highly recommend it for someone trying to upkeep or increase vocabulary!
Was great before and it's great again! 5/5
I loved Word of the Day when it was working. Now it's crashing on my iPhone 6, latest iOS. Let's see how long it takes to fix.
I'm now editing my review. The crashing has been fixed and the app has been returned to 5star status. This is one of the best apps on my phone. And every day at noon I get a notification of the new word. I then pause to see if I can define the word myself before viewing the definition and its sample usage. Really love it!
Bad update - fixed 5/5
This worked great until a bad update. But it was fixed almost right away, just had to uninstall & reinstall. Works great again. 90% of the words I've never used before so it really does help improve vocab. Every day at noon I get my notice. Awesome!
It makes everyone around me a little bit smarter every day 5/5
By Single gal
I got this app, primarily because I like to give my coworkers a word of the day. Although I usually know what the word means, occasionally even I am stumped. Like the word "pettifogger." Still one of my favorites.
The point is: everyone can learn something new, and it's more fun with a group.
The FedEx guy even learns a new word on the days he has a delivery.
The daily words from this app are a good combination of easy and difficult.
We have a lot of fun when it's time for my "Word of The Day" thanks to this app, and our vocabularies grow larger every day.
Plus, we get a free pass to goof off for about 30 minutes every day. What kind of boss would complain about their employees learning a new word every day?
I think she's a little jealous that she wasn't invited to play!
I like the new update 5/5
stop telling me to rate now leave me alone
New update looks great 4/5
By Runner Phuc
Love the dark background. Settings menu is a welcome addition. Was it there before? If it was I couldn't find it.
You can't teach an old dog new tricks 1/5
This is an amazing app (before update). Expanding ones vocabulary enriches not only their form of articulation, but their life as well. Learning is a beautiful trait that allows us humans to overcome and outsmart our surroundings. The idea of having access to new words everyday is all I needed, but you wanted more and wished to release a malfunctioning application. I downloaded this app for words, not a sweet layout and what not... Please fix this as soon as possible, and just leave it as it is.
New look 4/5
I love the updated look
Be more careful with the updates! 4/5
The latest update killed the Apple Watch app and it didn't update the functionality or look (only the app icon) of the iPad version.
Update and gone 1/5
Favorites I had saved are gone. Was a good app. Until the last two updates in 2 days.
Love learning new words. 5/5
After the recent update, the app wouldn't open. It would try to load then crash - the same problem everyone else is having. But I deleted it and downloaded it again, and it works fine.
Fixed crashing issue but 3/5
Must uninstall and reinstall to fix. Once open back to great program, but now it is slower to open.
Fixed it! 5/5
I did the new update, now the app won't open....
Thanks to the developer response the app is now working better than previously. Just uninstall and reinstall and it fixes the issue! Thanks!
Won't open 1/5
I was enjoying the app until this major update. Now it crashes when you try to open it.
Not working 3/5
Since it got updated it won't let me open it. I thought it was my phone but it's not. All my other apps work.
Bad update 1/5
Love this app but the recent update keeps crashing when I try to open it. Would be 5 stars if that could change.
Love the new design, but crashes on launch 1/5
App crashes as soon as you launch it. Great app though, and love what I can see of the new design before the crash. I'll give a 5 star review once the crash is fixed.
Great app, but latest version keeps crashing /= 3/5
By T Reinhart
I like this app, pretty decent. I mean hey — they don't even throw ads on it!
Unfortunately, the latest version is crashing on my iPhone 5s. Please fix!
An additional note: if you built a flashcard function this app would kill it. And then throw up a small banner ad on the bottom and watch the dimes roll in...just saying =)
Reinstall after update. 5/5
App was crashing after the latest update. Reinstalled the app and it is working just fine again.
Bring back old version this update blows up
Terrible update 1/5
Crashed 4 times in a row. Never got a chance to even get pass the loading screen.
Crash central! 1/5
App won't even open at all. Go back to the other version!!
Just tried entering app since the update. Crashes instantly. Giving one star because I have to. 😡
Bad update 1/5
After this newest update, the app immediately crashes after opening. Please fix
After the new update, the app was crashing as soon as I would try to open it. I deleted and reinstalled the app. It's working fine now.
