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.

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.
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.

Hi! We are glad that you enjoy our app. Awesome feedback. Thank you!
I remember a very long, long time ago when I was in 7-8 grade, our two language arts teachers would make us study twelve new words out of the dictionary each week. We needed to know how to spell it and what its definition was by that Friday afternoon's written spelling test with just the definitions given to us verbally.
I remember some of these words because of these two teachers caring to advance our vocabulary! I love this app!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
