Fixed an issue which was preventing iOS 13 Shortcuts from working properly.
Ratings and Reviews
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!
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.
It’s a pretty app and even though it’s part of the subscription, I appreciate the dark mode. $2.99 a year isn’t bad either.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for the feedback. With the release of the version 1.5 update, you can buy the Lifetime Unlock upgrade as a one-time purchase, instead of subscribing.
