LOvE this aPP!
Yeah, it doesn't have the pronunciation for the words (whaddya expect for "free"?!), but the 15K words offered are great to use and peruse. Anyone with really any 4th-6th grade knowledge of our fine English language should be able to figure out how to sound them out. OR one could always grab ol' Websters and actually look it up (gasp! Heaven forbid!).
OK--said my piece; for the selection and
content of words, I'd give the site a "6-star" rating. Too bad the most I can give is 5 stars!
Very good app. I look forward to my daily new word dose. However, it could be great if the following were added: sound for pronunciation, word origin, type of word ( verb, adjective, etc.) and example of sentences. It's disappointing to me, that after all these comments and suggestions from users of this app, all suggestion pretty much the same features, nothing has been done about it.
Difficult to use
I think it would be easier to use if you could go through each word with an arrow, instead of having to go back and click the next one. Also, possibly a "save to photo album" feature? I screenshot words I like, but that can get difficult and monotonous
