The app uses a physics-based, touch-driven mind-mapping engine to spring to life over 350,000 words and phrases from the Oxford Dictionary of English (probably the authoritative diction of the language) as well as The New Oxford American Dictionary and The Oxford Thesaurus of English. The app provides users with audio of pronunciations in US and Great Britton’s English. Double touching words allows the user to expand new word trees for that word, save as favorites/bookmark, copy to the clipboard. Users can share Word posters via Facebook, Twitter, photos, email, and printed.
Online dictionaries force users to scroll for what they want. Wordflex offers a more compelling, intuitive approach, combining structure and play to maximize learning. By manipulating word-trees physically, unlocking content at will and rearranging the onscreen ‘workspace,’ users experience language as an interactive adventure – and find what they’re looking for more quickly.”
