While you’re reading a book or newspaper, you encounter a word you don’t understand. So what do you do?
You could pull out your trusty dictionary from the bookcase, or you could look up the word straight from your smartphone.
Already widely used on desktop PCs, Dictionary.com can also be used on your smartphone though a dedicated app.
All of the content is stored locally by the app, so you can look up words even when you don’t have access to an Internet connection via 3G or Wi-Fi.
With free access to content from Dictionary.com and Thesaurus.com, for a total of over 2,000,000 words, you won’t find yourself stumped for the meaning of a word while on the move.
Pros: Nice design and audio pronunciations are included.
Cons: Downloading the offline file can be a bit cumbersome.
Verdict: It’s simply “splendiferous”
