Merriam-Webster Dictionary Now Available For Download In The Android Market

Up until now, there’s really only been a handful of decent dictionary applications for the Android OS.  I’m a huge fan of Dictionary.com’s app which also offers a Thesaurus on board.  The same functionality can be found on Webster’s Dictionary application only with a slight different UI, of course.  All your standard features are present like synonyms, antonyms, voice entries, audio playback for pronunciations and who can sound smarter on a daily basis without the “word of the day” feature, huh?  Ready for the download?  Head on over to the Android Market and don’t forget to hit the break to check out the list of features from the developers along with some more screen shots.  

From The Developers:

In addition to all the definitions from Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, this app offers voice search – to let you look up a word without having to spell it – along with synonyms, antonyms, example sentences, Word of the Day, and more. It’s a great tool for reference, education, and vocabulary building.

The app is free, and supported by ads.

Features:
* Synonyms & Antonyms
* Voice Search
* Example Sentences
* Audio Pronunciations
* Word of the Day
* Reader View – lets you hide navigation buttons to see text in full screen
* Recent History – lets you keep track of the words you’ve looked up


About the Author: Joe Sirianni

Joe was born in New Jersey and spent most of his childhood moving around from state to state. He eventually made his way to Pennsylvania where he met his Portuguese beauty and made her his wife. He now has three great kids and full access to all of the Portuguese food he can eat. Joe's love for mobile technology began when he bought his first Palm Pilot, a Palm M130 and left it on top of his car, driving off, causing it to smash into a thousand pieces. Forced to buy a new device, he quickly discovered that specs were changing so rapidly he was buying a new device every six months just to keep up. Since then, he has constantly felt the need to have the latest and greatest. When the "smartphone" revolution began and integrating cell phones and PDA's was the norm, he quickly jumped to Windows Mobile for several years until the first Android device was launched, the T-Mobile G1. Joe began appreciating all of the free utilities Google provided and sold his soul (his precious data) to Google long before they got into the mobile OS business. So, there was no hesitation at all for him to jump on board and ride the Android train as an early adopter. And boy has it been a blast. Joe now works in the Engineering & Operations dept for a major mobile carrier where he remotely troubleshoots cell sites and loves being an Editor for TalkAndroid.
