Address to Impress… Use words that make you sound smart and communicate better!

There are several apps that purport to help you expand your vocabulary, but which contain many words that you would be hard-pushed to include in everyday usage. The premise of this app is different: all of the words included are not only impressive but have real practical usefulness.

You will probably already have some familiarity with most of the words in this collection. What you might not do, however, is think to use them on occasions when they would be apposite. By using this app and seeing how they can be used effectively, you should become more familiar with their meanings and nuances, and so become confident enough to use them effectively. If you do this, the words will serve you well, both in your formal writing and in your conversation.
A final word of warning, however: don’t try to use too many of these words all at once. You will find that these words have the greatest impact when they hog the limelight in an otherwise simple sentence.

The 'Chambers - 200 Words You Should Use' includes:
▸ A selection of 200 words you can use to express yourself more clearly
▸ Word definitions including a pronunciation guide
▸ Roots of a word to shed light on the fundamental meaning
▸ Illustrative quotations drawn from books, newspapers, magazines and websites
▸ An exhaustive quiz to help you master these 200 words
▸ Functions to save to favourites and share words with friends on Facebook
▸ A carousel to serendipitously discover words
▸ Refreshing graphic design, a far cry from boring dictionary apps
▸ Intuitive user interface that’s practical and effective

How best to use this app
------------------------
There are several ways to study the words in this app.
▸ If you like to simply browse words that interest you, you can click on a word from the main screen.
▸ If this is a word you’d like to study or use in the future, you can mark it as a favourite.
▸ If you prefer to go through the words more systematically, you can choose a word from the index and then simply flick from one word to the next.
▸ You can also search words by using the alphabetical scroll bar at the bottom of the screen.
▸ Once you’ve gone through the words you feel you need to learn, try taking the quiz. The quiz challenges you with a completely random set of questions each time you take it, so you should be able to test yourself several times.

Keep going back to your favourites to review the meaning and proper usage of each word. Once you feel confident, try to use your new words at least once each day. You will find that eventually they will become a natural part to your repertoire.

    It would be a lot nicer if audio for each word is present. If that is possible I will buy all apps in this series.

    I like this app. It's UI is simple, yet effective. I use it when I have 5 or 10 minutes to idle away, a bit like a casual game. Having used it for a few weeks I've noticed the new words popping into my head when writing. Example: inculcate. I've had the

    I like the app and used it in v1.0, allowing for the glitch with repeated activation prompts. Now, with the v1.2 update, the app is BROKEN with Force Close every time I run it. Tried uninstalling and re-installing, but no good. (NexusOne, Android 2.3.6)

    Working well until issue with activation - constantly asking to "activate or purchase" on main screen but unable to activate... says to try again later. Negatively affects app experience & ease of exiting app. Waiting for fix, but still a well designed gr
