    free dictionary?

    Advertisement



    What's up everyone. I was wondering are there any free dictionary apps out there? I have the data plan so I go online if I want to look something up. But I was trying to find an actual app , say if I'm on the train and I'm Wrighting a short story, and need a certain word. No service cause I'm on a train. So that's why I'm looking for an app. Thanks in advanced to everyone!

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I can do the online search but I was looking for an app, so if I'm in places that don't get any service(like on the train) I can still use a dictionary.

    Download the free Mobipocket Reader for your BB, then download the free Mobipocket Creator...

    After you have both google for a free Ebook dictionary...then use the Mobipocket Creator to convert the ebook for mobipocket.

    Alternatively you could browse mobipocket's ebooks's and pay for one of their dictionaries.

    Good Luck.

    Thanks dude but I don't have a pc

    Re: free dictionary?

    I know this doesn't help the original poster but another way to get similar answers when you DO have a data connection is to text your question to
    466453 (google on a reg phone)
    For example
    Define shot
    Response
    Glossary:
    shot: an attempt to score in a game
    Source: wordnet.princeton.edu/perl/webwn
    Another example
    Weather Boston
    Answer
    Weather:
    Boston, MA
    61F, Clear
    Wind: SW 13 mph
    Hum: 81%
    Mon: 63F-83F, Clear
    Tue: 56F-77F, Mostly Sunny
    Wed: 58F-72F, Clear
    I use this resource ALL the time
