Writing Aid — Dictionary & Word of the Day widget
By Benjamin Mayo
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
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 1.3
Updated widget design for iOS 10.
Exactly the thing I have been looking for
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).
