Discover a new word, every day, with Daily Dictionary. Words are selected by human editors. This means words that you can use in everyday conversation, writing and reports. No technical science jargon. With definitions, usage examples and synonyms, gain confidence to use language that you never normally would … as well as some words that are entirely new to you.

Daily Dictionary features daily notifications, lock screen widget and Siri integration with iOS 12 Siri Shortcuts. Word of the day your way. Siri Shortcuts lets you ask Siri ‘word of the day’ from anywhere, and display the daily word and definition inline to Siri.

Inside the app, view today’s word and look back to the past few weeks for even more inspiration. Upgrade with a subscription to unlock Dark Mode — which directly supports the human editors writing the dictionary every day — and other perks in future.

All this in a beautiful modern design. One word per day, all year round. This is the Daily Dictionary. Words guaranteed not to repeat within two years, so you can always expect something new. Find out more at

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!


Nicely Designed

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. Daily Dictionary will appear in the Shortcuts app as an available action. You can incorporate it into other shortcuts and show the definition, example usage as an inline pane, in a Morning Routine shortcut or similar. I am also investigating ways to improve Shortcuts app integration in the future. Please contact if you require further assistance.

Fun learning

Like the app. Dark mode is the best. Nicely laid out. Only thing you might wanna add is what it is either verb,noun etc. Ask Siri shortcuts works. Thanks again.
