This widget displays the Word of the Day from the Wiktionary™ site, along with its meaning, updating it every day.
Tapping the widget opens up a full-screen display of the word's Wiktionary page - where additional interesting words can be tapped to see their definitions.
The menu offers options to search for a specific word or to seek a new random word.
This widget is a sample app that comes with the Android SDK - any Android developer gets to see it. This example has been ported from the original Java over to Oxygene for Java, my preferred Android programming language.
If you find any issues with this sample, please let me know so I can try and fix them.
