Writer’s block is a phenomenon that affects everyone. Know what you want to say but forgotten how to express it? Just can’t remember what this word means?

Writing Aid can relieve this frustration. Instantly search for definitions and synonyms just like a standard dictionary. However, Writing Aid can also find words when you search for meanings. So a search for 'green blue color' returns suggestions like 'turquoise' or 'aquamarine'. Similarly, typing 'inventing new things' returns words such as 'candelabra' and 'sconce'.

These words share the same meaning but make your writing more sophisticated and more elegant.

You wouldn't want to write on your iPhone, but that doesn’t mean your iPhone can’t help you write.

No ads. No fuss. Just the words.

With iOS 8, Writing Aid can also be added to the Today view, as a Word of the Day widget. Be inspired every day with a new word to expand your vocabulary.

Ratings and Reviews

Exactly the thing I have been looking for

Hunter Holder

This app is amazing. I love being able to do reverse look-ups on words. Sometimes I have a word on the tip of my tongue, and I just can't remember it. And the presentation is great. Just open the app and instantly start typing to find what you want. Very simple and expedient. The only reason I rate 4 stars is because the sharing functionality is a bit broken (crashes when trying to save an image of a definition to your photos and sometimes sends just black images when sharing to certain apps like telegram).

Offline, quick, intuitive dictionary


I've been looking for an app that can give me a word's definitions without a messy interface (ads and clutter) or having to connect to the internet. Writing Aid does just that, giving me multiple definitions within seconds. Furthermore, WA gives me all sorts of options to expand my vocabulary. A truly necessary app.

Fast, clear, easy to use

Jared Porter

Writing Aid gets right to the point of efficiently producing the definition one is searching without all the extraneous clutter surrounding the common, online dictionary format. So, if you are not necessarily requiring the pronunciation guide, nor obscure etymological references, and just want to get the job done, I would suggest using this handy, straightforward reference resource.
