Thank you all for your pledges, support and encouragement. We have 2 days to go. Unless Kickstarter happens to feature this project, we probably will not meet the funding goal.
Nevertheless, we've continued to flesh out the app idea, and we have new ideas for how the app can work both online and offline. When the app is online, we'll have the great definitions and related words from Wordnik. But the app will work offline also, with a limited set of definitions and synonyms from other free sources which should still be very useful.
We have a new Twitter account (@WordNodes) to follow the evolution of this project, https://twitter.com/#!/WordNodes, which already has 178 followers, including many educators who are using iPads in the classroom.
