    Dictionary.com Launches Free Blackberry App

    Advertisement



    Already a big hit on iPhone the Dictionary.com app comes to BlackBerry.

    In addition to providing users with more than 500,000 words, definitions and synonyms, the app also features audio pronunciations, spelling suggestions, a “Word of the Day” for both English and Spanish and the ability to view a recently searched terms list. One of the features that is exclusively available on the Blackberry app is the ability to access a definition or synonym while reading or drafting an email. The app lets you highlight the word and you’ll be given an option to find a synonym or definition. The app also has a native feature that lets you email or SMS text any word and its definition to yourself or a contact.

    Doug Leeds, president of Dictionary.com, (App World Link) says that the features included in the Dictionary.com app were designed to meet the specific professional needs of BlackBerry users. For example, definitions have been condensed to be more functional on a Blackberry screen. Leeds also tells us that they are releasing their API to partners to incorporate into various applications. While Dictionary.com is still finalizing partners, Leeds says that the API will be incorporated on e-books, letting users (but wouldn’t say which one).

    I have this app on my iPhone and it's great. It's kept me from feeling really dumb on more than one occasion It would only be fair that it's just as nice on the BB. I'm looking forward to seeing feedback from BB users.

    That's the case with me also. It's been a great App. I'm glad to see it available for the Blackberry too.
    Being free is another bonus
