The Reverb App: Now Even More Collection-y


You know that we at Wordnik love collections. After all, a dictionary is basically a huge collection of words, and lists — of which we have at last count almost 47,000 — are just mini-collections. So we’re extra excited that our sister product, Reverb, is now offering user collections.

In case you didn’t know, Reverb is a free iPad news reader designed to help you read more about what you like, and find new and interesting content, too.

While collections have always been a part of Reverb –  for instance, every day our editorial team brings readers a Top News collection — now everyone can make collections too.

How excited are we about this? We held our own collection making tournament in celebration.

To date, we have over 1,500 user collections, including this awesome Wearables collection from our own Erin McKean.

Not only can you make collections of articles you find in Reverb, you can collect those articles you’ve shared with your friends via Twitter and Facebook, just by connecting those accounts to Reverb.

If you follow us on Twitter, you know that we tweet our favorite language stories every day. Now because of Reverb we can easily gather them in a collection.


Don’t have an iPad? No worries: you can view the collection on the web.

We like this feature so much, we’ll be sharing a beautiful favorite Language Stories collection every week!

And if you make a word-nerdy collection we like, we’ll send you some cool schwag. Just tweet your collection at Wordnik with the hashtag #
