If you are looking for a comprehensive and affordable tool to improve your language skills, download Dictionary.com app from the App Store.
Once you open the app to check out a particular word, you are guaranteed to stay longer. Why? Dictionary.com is not only a dictionary and thesaurus in one, offering over 2 million detailed definitions. It’s an entire ecosystem that will help you explore words, phrases, and meanings in a surprisingly entertaining way.
Other apps in the Apple iTunes Store offer traditionally organized definitions. Information is delivered linearly, and it’s easy to get lost in more complex entries. Dictionary.com splits every entry into simpler and cleaner sections: dictionary, thesaurus (synonyms), origin, and learners. In the paid version, you will also gain access to examples, idioms, grammar, or slang, among others.
You can set up your primary search option: dictionary or thesaurus. You can favorite words, see spell or IPA, learn about trending words. Plus, there are extensive tools that will let you enjoy learning about language to the fullest: Word of the Day (with an option to receive daily notifications), Grammar Tips, Word Trends, Slideshows, and more.
The app offers several options to upgrade, from removing the ads ($1.99) to adding example sentences ($2.99), to the offline dictionary ($2.99).
