Writing Aid — Dictionary, Synonyms and Meanings (with widget)
By Benjamin Mayo
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
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.
What's New in Version 1.1.5
The previous update introduced a bug which caused the Word of the Day widget to stop automatically updating periodically. Version 1.1.5 resolves this issue.
As always, please leave a review in the App Store to help continued development of Writing Aid. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.
Word of the day widget
Despite the title, this needs the ability to select additional words. Whereas the one-per-day concept makes sense as an addendum when a word is looked up, in the Today area it needs continual functionality to justify the space, and not stupidly remain as mere clutter for the rest of the day. Also, it acts as a digest or game in this location, furthering the point of increasing vocabulary; restricting that to one word per day is obviously counterproductive.
Easy to use
I was hesitant to buy this app a couple days ago but I'm glad I did. I have already used it numerous times for various papers I've had to write for school. It easy to use with a simple and easy on the eyes interfacing
One of my faves
I often get that tip-of-the-tongue problem where I can't quite remember the word I want, and this app is able to find it roughly 75% of the time. Great work, guys!
