Wordy: The Logophile’s Primer for iPhone

By  | 

No matter how great you think your grasp of the English language is, you are going to need a dictionary from time to time. Of course, nobody carries those large paper books around these days. iOS applications such as Wordy let you look up words on your iPhone fast. It provides you with definitions and synonyms on the go.

Wordy has a straight forward interface. Just enter the word you want to search for and the app does the rest. It aggregates information from Merriam-Webster, Century Dictionary, and American Heritage Dictionary. The word of the day feature can teach you a word or two if you play with this app long enough.

Wordy is aesthetically pleasing and has a lot of potential. It is one of the better dictionary apps we have tested. We would love the app to be more social media friendly. Having the ability to create custom word databases would be nice too. Wordy has potential.
