Works as advertised - No idea the issues reported by only other review on this software. Downloaded and installed on MacBook Pro running 10.7. Not the most exciting piece of software, but it does what it says it will with clean/intuitive options...
Not very helpful - I downloaded the app expecting to learn new, challenging words every day. Instead I got easy words most people already know like "misapply" and "strain" and I couldn't even get another one. It was a complete waste of money.

Fun App - This app is super cool to have, because it is interesting and it adds some swag to your home page. The words aren’t always challenging and sometimes they are weird slang type words, but it doesn’t hurt to refine your idea of terms that you THINK you already know. With all of this said, It does provide you with good words every so often. There are some bugs and it is not perfect, but If you don’t like it, then get another word of the day app! Oh wait….
Won’t even open. - Do not get this app, I have had it for months and it has yet to open once. It is constantly saying to test my connection, when I have perfect wifi. Don’t waste your money.
Doesn’t work - It doesn’t work for me (the word of the day alternative is off). I even removed and reinstalled it several times.
App Did Not Work - Word of the Day app icon appeared in top menu bar however the program never launched. "Unable to download words, check connection then click here to retry” Program never connected even though I’m currenlty connected to the internet right now writing this review. Hopefully the developers fix this issue soon or someone else creates on that actually works.
Doesn’t Work - When I tried to use no words came up and sometimes it would say “check connection” but I had perfect wifi. Thought I would give it a few days but didn’t end up changing. Great idea for an app. Wish it worked or there were other similar ones
