Sometimes I have a very perverse sense of humor. I like to use long and unusual words in my conversations with people and then watch them tilt their heads and wrinkle their brows as they try to follow what I am saying. Oh, it's all in good fun, and I tell them I am teasing as I explain the meaning of the word. Word Oddities will get you expanding your vocabulary with quite unusual and not often heard words in no time at all so that you can also play mind games with your friends! It is a pseudo dictionary app of hand picked unusual words and meanings, one of which will appear randomly at start-up.

When you use Word Oddities, simply shake the device for the next random word to appear or click the text at the top of the screen! In explanation, if you click on "Word", your screen will take you back a word, while if you click on "Oddities" you will move forward. Don't just have fun with others though. Test
your own knowledge by swiping left on the word to enter the hidden meaning mode. If you can't guess the definition, then just swipe right to show the meaning again. If you'd like to share your intriguing and different words, just copy and paste them in whatever method of communication you choose so that you can share your knowledge with others!

Here's another neat feature to this app. You can run Word Oddities on a docking station as a fully working clock. The app will not go to sleep, while a new random word will appear on the screen every 2 minutes. Click on the time display to swap between the AM/PM and Seconds display. Word Oddities is an relaxing break in your day, and serves the multi-purposes of education, reference, entertainment and a clock to keep your brain ticking!
