Description

Looking for tips for improving your vocabulary? Whether you are trying to strengthen and broaden your vocabulary for school or personal growth, the key is a commitment to regularly learning new words. Why expand your knowledge and use of words? You'll be able to communicate (speak and write) more clearly and concisely, people will understand you more easily, and you will increase the perception (and reality) that you are an intelligent person. Besides, learning new words is a fun activity -- and one you can even do with the people around you.

    Enjoy the temporary learning distractions throughout my day. I would like different voice options. The default male voice is awful!
  • needs to be more adaptable to individual levels

    I already knew almost all the words it gave me. The app would be vastly improved by an initial placement test of sorts, or even a place to indicate “I already know this word” when you’re given a new one, so that the level could be adjusted up or down.
  • Add a couple things to 5stars

  • Cool but needs improvement

    I love that the app gives you new words as often you you like. A few improvements I would love to see are: -Give the gender of the word along with the word. Knowing the correct gender is crucial. -Give context. Sometimes seeing a word used in context can drastically improve ones understanding and the likelihood of it becoming a useable vocabulary word. Don’t just give the word “comida”. Show it used in a sentence: “quiero comer comida”. -Give the option for the notification more like a flash card. Have the Spanish word on top with its translation separated with a space. Lastly, make the list of vocabulary more useful. I get a lot of words I already know. Make the list of words Not the top 100 most used words. Good app, Great potential.
  • Well done

    This is about as simple as an app can get. I know 80% of the words but rarely use them in conversation. It’s difficulty factor is perfect for most of us. It’s a good refresher. Occasionally I can pick up a new word or the definition of a word I know, but definition I don’t or an alternate definition. In my case I choose to look at three words a day. It’s not overwhelming or bothersome so I keep using it. I’d make one small change. I only look a the Notification. I would leave the definition off the Notification. If I need the definition I can open the app from the Notification. It would keep me honest.
  • If it's what you want

    If it's what you want, it's good. I want something similar to what I had as a student in the 90's with unusual words we were unlikely to encounter or even use in conversation but sometimes knowing a word is enough to give context to an experience. Two come to mind because they've entered my lexicon to at least a small degree: Flews- dog lips. I see them as the ones on the sides with uneven edges Fire-fanged- overheating something in a microwave. I think we all agree it's different than overheating something any other way. Devs, oh talented devs- anyone can make a word a day app. It takes a special kind of developer to release a truly unique Word of the Day App. You can be that developer.

    Great app, BUT it doesn’t read the words to me when I press the speaker button.
  • Perfect Word Difficulty

    For myself, at least, this app selects words that are at a great difficulty level. Not too difficult, but not a waste of time. It also has a lack of annoying ads detracting from its usability.

    I think a search bar would be a good addition as well, so that you can look up and favorite new words from outside the app.
