"[...] entertain yourself and your friends for hours [...]" -

Fictionary, also known as the "dictionary game" or simply "dictionary", is a word game in which players guess the definition of an existing obscure word.

The classic dictionary game, revisited.
Just grab a pencil and you will be able to impress your friends with your most creative made-up definitions for real words that you do not know.
You don’t need a dictionary or any other way of finding a difficult word. Instead, Hapax presents you with a word at random, and memorises the words that you have already seen during the same game.
You can also play the game by yourself and enjoy the opportunity to look through the dictionary and enrich your vocabulary.

"Hapax lite" contains 40 English words, ranging from the uncommon to the extremely rare, along with their definitions, which are simplified and written in a more natural style than you would find in a classic dictionary.
If you change the language of your Ipod Touch or your iPhone to French, not only will you enjoy a fully translated interface, but you will also be able to discover 40 French words!


Download "Hapax lite" for free (containing 40 words per dictionary), and if you like it, buy the full version of "Hapax" : each dictionary contains 400 words!
