All the words I have ever looked up in the dictionary on my phone

If I want to look up a word in the dictionary or thesaurus on my phone, I write it down in my ‘Notes’ app and then look it up with my phone's built-in dictionaries etc., because my phone has no standalone dictionary app, I don't want to get such an app (because choosing which app is too much trouble), and I don't want to use search engine (because then I have to select one of the results to click on, and not all online dictionaries are reputable). A side effect of this is that I have a record of every word I've looked up on my phone. Some of them I wanted to know their meaning, some of them I was curious about their etymology, and some I wanted the definition of in order to investigate a linguistic dispute amongst those in my vicinity. Here they are, in chronological order of when I looked them up:
