Great app

This is a nicely done app. Thanks. The subscription is quite reasonable.

A few suggestions:
- Please add bookmarks to the Apple Watch detail screen.
- I agree with some of the other comments that it would be nice to have more obscure words more often. I realize it is hard to please a broad base. Maybe there could be an “advanced mode” that sprinkles in more challenging words now and then. I realize that generates extra work, as well.

Words most native English speakers already know

It’s an attractive app and the Apple Watch notifications are thoughtful, but even though I upgraded, I’m still being shown words that are way too easy and don’t pose an issue for native English speakers. Singe, serene, decay, siphon—really? Yes I’m a reader and a writer but anyone with a decent vocabulary will not be challenged by many of these.

Contrast this with the many “word of the day” apps and websites out there that feature words that are actually challenging or often misunderstood. A random sampling of today’s words of the day includes polysemy, atypical, opusculum, and and pulchritudinous. (Now *there’s* a word.)

Also, no etymologies (word origins), which are often the most interesting part of a word definition and can greatly help in memorization.

Very appealing simple design!

Really like the design, it doesn’t beg for attention or have a brand attached, feels almost like a system app. Only recommendation would be to add whether the word is a noun, verb, adjective, etc. Other than that, this seems like a super cool thing to wake up and take a look at everyday!
