LookUp is an Elegant Dictionary App for Apple Watch and iPhone
Just about a year ago, we wrote about LookUp, a brilliant dictionary app for iPhone. In his review, Mikhail praised the simplicity of the app & its card based interface, and stated that “[LookUp] doesn’t feel like any other dictionary app for iPhone.”
Although the app has structurally remained the same, it has undergone some really wonderful changes over the last one year and it was time to revisit it. The biggest feature added to LookUp recently is the Apple Watch support that lets you quickly look up a word right from your wrist. The Apple Watch app is just as elegant looking as the iPhone app. LookUp has also tweaked its design, with a new typeface for all the text in the app. There’s also a new Dark Theme that can be enabled in the app, if a Light one isn’t your thing. You can still view the word of the day in the app and browse the past ones as well view your search history or starred items. LookUp has also added a much-required in-app browser, so all the “Read More” links don’t throw you out of the app any more. If you love the ‘Word of the Day’ feature, you can also enable the Notification Center widget so you’re presented a new word to learn every day. I love the graphical illustrations that accompany the words of the day.
LookUp 2.0 fixed a lot of the complaints that Mikhail highlighted in his review and also introduces some great new features. It was released as a Free update to existing users and if you don’t already have it, you can grab LookUp at $1.99 on the App Store.
