What's new

This update makes the app even better for reading articles and viewing media. Animation shows when content from articles and websites is pulled to your completed vocabulary word.  As before, you can challenge yourself to create "refrigerator magnet poetry" using some of your vocabulary -- now with new snippets from the works of Elizabeth Bishop, Richard Brautigan,Robert Frost, Frank O’Hara, Gertrude Stein, and James Wright. Also as a bonus, literary terms have been added to the word packs.
