Dictionary.com Is Available On iPhone For Free

18 04 2009

If you need to look up the definition of a word, you can go up to dictionary.com. Simply type in the word and it’ll show  the definition and references. Dictionary.com, as its name suggests, is multi-source dictionary search service that helps you search for the reference of a word in multiple dictionaries. It’s a free service that probably you’re already enjoying it. Dictionary.com launched its iPhone App and made it free for download via App Store. That’s really cool. Now, you can always carry a free & lightweight dictionary, that bundles 275,000 definitions and 80,000 synonyms, on-the-go.

To use the Dictionary.com app, it is simple and straightforward. You can just type in the word in the search box and tap “search” button to look up the word definition. Don’t worry if you do not know the exact spelling. The dictionary app offers word suggestions as you type along. This free application also features thesaurus, that lets you search for synonyms, and its popular Word Of the Day service.

What’s more is it provides audio pronunciation via its huge Dictionary database. Simply tap on the “speaker” icon right next to the word. You can download the audio and hear the pronunciation of a word right on the iPhone via speaker or headphone. It’s awesome.

Note: To use the dictionary service, you do not need Wifi or 3G connection. But to access Word of the day or listen to pronunciation, you’ll need to hook up the iPhone to the Internet.

I know Dictionary.com is not the only app that provides this kind of dictionary service. But probably it’s the only provider that brings this service to iPhone for free. The Dictionary.com app is already available on App Store. You can download it via this direct iTunes link.
