Overview

Glorious Words is a concept app designed for use on iPhone and Apple Watch with the intention to make people aware of unusual and whimsical words which are infrequently used in normal conversations.

Each day, a brand new word is displayed alongside its description, how to prounounce it, and how to use the word in a sentence.

Design & User Experience

With the primary goal of providing users new words each day, I wanted to ensure that users are greeted with the minimal amount of information when they first open the app. Upon launch, users will only see three specific areas within the app: the daily word, the description of the word, and an image which helps explain the word visually.

If the user wishes to learn more about the word, they simply have to swipe left within the 'word card' to visualise and listen to the pronounciation, or see how the word is used within a sentence.

Favourites

Users can save words which they like to their favourites collection, this is always accessible from the bottom toolbar.

Apple Watch

Users can also interact with a simplified version of the app on their Apple Watch.
