Dictionary's review

    Published: 2012-05-10, by Manu Galvez.

    Dictionary by Farlex is a comprehensive dictionary with interesting features

    • Word of the day, articles of the day, words game
    • Reliable resources
    • Translator
    • Layout should be enhanced
    • All the extra features aren't available in all languages

    "Beyond classic dictionaries"

    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.
