This app was recently featured in Apple's 20 under 20 promotion on the App Store. Liking how they make their word of the days very visual...it's a nice touch.

Introducing LookUp 3.0 We've completely redesigned lookup from the ground up to provide a more enjoyable experience. The dashboard is now the hub for discovering words, quotes, phrases and from the language. With more active content generation, you won't just be able to learn a new word everyday, you'll now be able to discover new and interesting content every moment. LookUp's redesigned dashboard is a peep into the beautiful language that English is. The definition screen includes a cleaner look and a much more readable form for the etymology of words, providing indents and other visual cues to better organise that information. iMessage App: If you've discovered something on our dashboard that you found really interesting, you can now share it with your friends with our iMessage App.
