WordLive app

News about mobile app

As of August 2015, we are withdrawing the WordLive mobile app, formerly available on iOS and Android. Depending on the version you have installed, the app may continue to work for existing users. But you can instead add the WordLive website to your phone's home screen - see below.

We made this decision because the WordLive app didn't offer the user experience we hoped it would - for example, it didn't automatically sync content for offline use, and only the current day was available. You can receive WordLive for offline reading or listening via the daily email and podcast.

We've made improvements to the WordLive website so it works better on mobile phones and tablets. Visiting the website will give you the full WordLive experience, shaped for your mobile device.

You can add WordLive to your phone or tablet's home screen with an app-style bookmark:
