There are also several apps for both iOS and Android that feature a new word each day, including the dictionary.com app. Many of these apps also allow users to hear the word of the day spoken out loud so they know how it sounds. The free app "The Word of the Day" is an iOS app for iPhone and iPads that downloads a new word every day, along with its definition. The app also keeps track of previous words, allowing users to review the words they have learned while using the app.

Another Android-based word of the day app provides daily SAT vocabulary words that can help students expand their vocabulary and prepare for standardized testing.Learn more about Education
