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, Bookmarks, custom Apple Watch preferences, and advanced data shortcuts. Upgrades directly support the developer and the people who are writing the dictionary, featuring a new word, every day.

All this in a beautiful modern design. One word per day, all year round. This is the Daily Dictionary. Find out more at

Hard sell

Enjoyable if not too brief, but it’s annoying how much of the screen is taken up by a sales pitch to subscribe.

excellent daily word app

Good to see synonyms. Short definitions good. Add type of word.

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.
