About Dictionary.com

The Dictionary app from dictionary.com is one of the most popular dictionaries for android. One of the reasons for this might be that it's really much more than 'just' a dictionary. 

Apart from 375,000 words and definitions and 300,000 synonyms and antonyms, it also offers audio search (which is way cool) and audio pronunciation, so you can learn to speak (better) English on the go. It also has example sentences, the Word of the Day - which is one of the most popular features - and the Hot Word blog, which we'll leave up to you to find out. 

Teacher Review

The Dictionary.com app for Android and iOS is perhaps the most exhaustive dictionary app, at least for English. In addition to letting you browse offline, it comes with a wide variety of supplementary features like “Word of the Day”, quizzes, medical, science, rhyming, slang dictionaries, and more. There are audio pronunciations as well, and it houses over 2,000,000 definitions and synonyms.

On the first boot, it will prompt you to download all the necessary offline files, so you can take advantage of it without connecting to the internet. You can have access to definitions in English and reference words you researched in the past, by accessing the archive. The app even tells you the backstory of a particular word. Pronunciation, though, are available only online. It’s free, and you can download it from the links down below for Android and iPhone.
