Price Reduced!

This is not your father's dictionary. Words come from the across the Internet and the server's dictionary, ensuring you get a broad and modern range of definitions, usages, and contexts. See synonyms, usage samples, and original sources.

Perfect for when you are reading a book - never skip a word just because your paper dictionary is too far away or because your computer-based dictionary would mean too much of an interruption from your main task - reading. Keep it handy while reading in bed, on the bus, on the couch, but not in the tub.

Some Reviews
"This is much more practical and functional than the other dictionary apps"

"The pairing of the word definition with other online references like Wikipedia is a nice touch."

Unique Features
- See word popularity. Hint: “Ubiquitous” is #1

What's New in Version 1.1

*** Update Notes for Version 1.1 ***

* Big Feature: In response to user comments, a complete History page has been added. You can now see your previous dictionary lookups listed by various sort orders. A user setting has also been added to allow for "private" lookups.

* Small Feature: You can can now lookup multi-word phrases

* Usability Improvement: When starting the application, it automatically re-loads the last word that you looked up. This is particularly useful when returning to the dictionary after visiting a source web page. This feature can be turned off via a user setting.
