Dictionary.com 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.
