Dictionary.com Free App for iOS – Review
By: Prashanth Shantharam  |  5, April 2011

Dictionary.com recently launched their latest version 3.1 for the iOS platform with a few additional features. With over 200,000 words in its repository, you could perform word searches even on offline mode. Its speech recognition technology is impressive, just tap on the voice button and speak your word for an almost instant response.

Rating: ★★★★

For voice to text mode, you need to be online!

The app’s new version offers faster content download, adding word of the day to your favorites and a few bug fixes.

Its Google-esque search functionality offers quick drop down of possible words you are looking for, and its spelling suggestion feature is impressive too.

Its alphabetical indexing, over 100,000 words and their definition, and 90,000 words with their antonyms and synonyms makes this app my go-to place for all things words.

    "Mobile is fundamentally reshaping how we as consumers spend from housing and healthcare to entertainment and travel, from food and drinks to communication and transportation. Mobile not only influences purchase behavior but also post purchase opinions. When the share button is literally a second away, consumers are willingly sharing more information than ever before. Mobile is thus helping close the nirvana gap for brands and advertisers who seek to connect advertising to actual transactions. The long-term battle is however for owning the context of the users. Having the best knowledge about the user to help drive the transaction is the simply the most valuable currency of commerce.” -- Chetan Sharma State of Global Mobile Industry Report1H, 2011
