    "The basic idea behind open source is very simple. When programmers on the Internet can read, redistribute, and modify the source for a piece of software, it evolves.

    A set of offline tools to help with writing poems (currently only English is supported):

    * a rhyming dictionary, using the Carnegie Mellon University pronunciation dictionary.
    * a thesaurus, using the WordNet thesaurus.
    * a dictionary, using the WordNet dictionary.
    * a screen where you can enter your poem text, and have it read aloud back to you by the device's text-to-speech engine.

    The dictionaries are built in the app. No internet connection is required to use them.

    * Since 1.5.0, the app has the "run at startup" permission for the "Word of the day" feature. If you enable this feature in the settings, when the device reboots, the app makes sure the "word of the day" notification is still scheduled.
