The idea for Vocabulist was born while sitting in my school library, looking up the definition of words online. I had like 50 words to get through, and it was slow, monotonous work. So, I thought, "Why isn't there a tool for this already"? We have Quizlet and Cram that help us study, but we need to manually enter everything into them, which is slow and tedious. Vocabulist aims to do that for you in less than 5 minutes.

How it works

Vocabulist just parses your list and queries Merriam-Webster's API to find definitions. An algorithm is used to determine the "best" definitions.

What's next for Vocabulist

I am currently working on building an iOS face for Vocabulist. It will feature a simple but accurate OCR engine.
