Merriam-Webster App Released
English sounds simple – but it really isn’t. Th world’s lingua franca is probably the most adaptable and useful among the world’s living languages – and it has managed to achieve that by accumulating a large vocabulary of words. It can be quite confusing even for fluent speakers and writers to remember how exactly some words are spelled. That is why dictionaries are such popular products.
Right now, when you’re looking for a dictionary for your Android device, whether it be tablet or phone, there is a whole range of choices. However, up till recently, the biggest name in word reference wasn’t available on Android. Well, the folks at Merriam-Webster have changed that particular state of affairs. If you go and check the Android Market, you’ll be pleased to find that the app version of the Merriam-Webster Dictionary is now available.
Claiming that it is “America’s most useful and respected dictionary,” the guys at Merriam-Webster have been at it for years – and now they’re bringing all of their reference powers to Android along with a slew of nice features. You can find out what a word means – without knowing how to spell it. This is done by a simple voice search and you can have your answer easily. It also offers other features: synonyms, antonyms, example sentences, Word of the Day, and audio pronunciations.
So what are you waiting for? This app is free in the Android Market, and you can grab it by the simple procedure of dropping by and downloading the app.
