"Beyond classic dictionaries"

Reviewed by / Apr 14, 2015

Dictionary by Farlex is a comprehensive dictionary with interesting features

This isn't just a dictionary in which you input a word and it brings you back a definition. Of course, it includes that feature taking definitions from multiple dictionaries (medical, legal, financial...) and Encyclopedias and Thesaurus. (up to 13 languages). You can jump to definition, translation or Thesaurus with one button. However, it also includes some other interesting features.

For example, you can listen to word's pronunciation. It includes an extensive offline dictionary which means you'll be able to search words even without an Internet connection. You can create bookmarks of your favorites words, share dictionary pages through Facebook, Twitter, E-mail or any other sharing resources installed on your mobile device.

Its strongest point is a customizable home which is a user dashboard, from where you can search word, translate it, discover "The word of the day", read the "Article of the Day" and the "Quote of the day", "Day in History", "Today's Birthday", "In the news", "Weather", "Hangman" game, "Spelling bee" (different difficulty levels), "Words withing words" (game), even "Horoscope" and "Match up" (game). It's a pity that all this features are not available in all languages.

In a nutshell, a dictionary which takes some learning resources and becomes a comprehensive language-learning app. Recommendable.

    This app used to be great, but since the last update I can't read the articles from Wikipedia. Everything else seems to be OK. I even upgraded to pro to see if that made a difference. the page goes blank except for a spinning wait circle. If I click the back button, the app closes just as if I were on the home page. It seems like there is no connection to wikipedia or to your mirror of wikip

    Doesn't support widgets,which makes this app somewhat pointless.Cannot sync the bookmarked words across multiple devices.

    I'd be wonderful of there were one click to add words to your bookmark list. I like to add new words I read to my list, and currently I must click options, bookmarks, then the plus button. Just a minor inconvenience.
