Expand Your Vocabulary With Vocabology

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

I like to think I'm a fairly well read person. In every day speech and writing, there's hardly ever a word I struggle to understand. It only takes a quick flick through a dictionary to realise however that there's a whole wealth of different words out there that are both fascinating and quite cool to know. In every day speech, it's easy to stick to the same variety of words so along comes Vocabology hoping to buck that trend.

Vocabology is a free app that allows you to view the word of the day from various different sources on the internet. All located in the one place, it's easy to quickly look up and learn new things. The app covers everything from Merriam Webster, Yahoo Education and even Urban Dictionary. Urban Dictionary makes for a particularly intriguing one offering up some terms that I can safely admit I've never heard of before.

For those hoping to learn even more than English, there's also the addition of words of the day in Spanish, French, Italian, German and Portugese.

In the case of each entry, Vocabology also provides a definition, often an explanation of how to pronounce it and an audio clip saying it. Users can save their favorite words to a favorite list to consult at a later date.

Finally, there's also a quiz game that enables users to test their knowledge of words that have been covered previously on the app.

Within no time at all, users of Vocabology are destined to learn more and more new words which they'll hopefully use in every day life. Along the way, users should also learn a few new words in different languages too which is bound to be convenient.

Vocabology looks set to be a great app to check in on a daily basis.

It's available now for all iOS devices and is a free download.
