    "An unabridged dictionary in the palm of your hand"

    It's an unabridged dictionary and thesaurus in your pocket for free. What more do you need to know?

    Alright - a few specs on the ultra-useful app. The database includes well over 2,000,000 definitions of English words, all of which are downloaded onto your device for reference use either on or offline. The thesaurus feature is also just as rich in synonyms and antonyms as its online counterpart. Word nerds will delight in the ample example sentences, etymological information, and audio pronunciation.

    It's easy to save favorite terms for quick revisiting, and your search history is automatically logged as well. You can have the Word of the Day sent daily through a push notification if you wish. The "locally trending" search feature will display what folks are looking up in your vicinity, which is rather pointless yet fun in a looky-loo kind of way. There's a built-in translator for over 50 languages that does as decent a job as any automatic translation service does - that is to say, the results are choppy but potentially useful.

    The app is exactly what you want it to be, and that it functions smoothly both on- and offline is a huge boon. It's perfect for vocabulary newbies and glossary geeks alike.
