I would like to improve my vocabulary through different ways and now I am looking for a vocabulary/dictionary app that can display a different word daily on the Windows 8 Metro platform.

I have installed a lot of apps trying to fulfill this requirement but without success.

Do you know any Windows 8 app that does that?
