Check Out the F-ing Word of the Day Website and App

It never hurts to enrich your vocabulary and learn a few new words, right? You can do that by opening up the dictionary and taking a look at a random word every day. Or you could do one better and visit the F-ing Word of the Day website. Since you’re most likely going to fire up your browser daily, I think going with the F-ing Word of the Day website approach is better.

A new word is posted on the website on a daily basis. For each word you can see an explanation of what it means, an example of the word being used in a sentence, and if you want to, you can click the speaker icon and listen to the word.

For easy access to the word of the day, the site lets you subscribe via email, via RSS, via tumblr, via Twitter and via Facebook. For easy access to the word of the day you could get The F-ing Word of the Day app from the App Store (check out a videp presentation on Vimeo here ). The app costs a mere $0.99 and works with any iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad powered by iOS 3.2.1 or later. Please note that you must be at least 17 or older to get the app from the App Store.

Speaking of The F-ing Word of the Day app, a user known as HiDefinition posted a request on the xSellize forums asking for someone to crack the app. The interesting thing is that Chris Baker , the developer of The F-ing Word of the Day app and the owner of the The F-ing Word of the Day site, responded. In the response Chris Baker said that he’s glad people wan to pirate his stuff because it’s an indication that his stuff is popular. He told HiDefinition to go ahead and pirate the app, but if he likes The F-ing Word of the Day, then he should hook Chris up with 99 cents, one eight of a Stella Artois beer.

The discussion did not end there. HiDefinition replied and said that he wanted someone to crack the app because he has no credit, credit cards or any kind of banking service - so he can't purchase the app. HiDefinition went on to say that he will pay for the app after all even though it may be a bit of a bother figuring out how to pay for it. HiDefinition said he would be glad to contribute to Chris’ Stella Artois fund raise.

What do you think Chris’ response was this time? He said that he’ll gift the app to HiDefinition.

I like that story because it shows that Chris’ polite response persuaded a potential pirate to purchase the app. I also like it because when the potential pirate said he doesn’t have a means to pay for the app, the developer offered to make the app a gift.
