Bringing mobile dictionary search further with WordLog

WordLog v.1.4 is now out, and has several new features that we hope will make word search and discovery more efficient and fun. First some pictures:

The most important new feature is found in the “Related” tab of a word: instead of just having a list of static, related words, you can now click on them and thereby embark on a navigation from word to word. We found this a huge improvement, giving users much better incentive to explore new territory inside the fabulous world of Wordnik.

Also worth mentioning is the new widgets: besides the existing search box widget, you can now display Wordnik’s word of the day, and by pressing the little circular arrow button, fetch a random word. Choose between single-function widgets or combine all these things into one widget via the configuration screen. Random words may also be fetched via the “…”-button in the bottom right corner of the home screen.

Finally some minor updates: Froyo users can now move the app to the SD card; search can be included in Android’s Quick Search Box, alongside web search, phone contacts etc.; backup and restore has been improved, notably with reminders (every 7 days), and the option to automatically schedule backups (also every 7 days).

Hope you like it 😉

    Is there a free version? I see references to it but only find a fee version when doing a search for wordlog on the marketplace.
