Using the same words over and over again is never a good idea. Especially when you’re writing something long like a book or you write frequently like a blogger. It’s always a good idea to have a wide variety of vocabulary to keep things interesting. We can help with that. Here are the best thesaurus apps for Android! A lot of dictionary apps also come with built-in thesauruses. We have our best list of those linked just below if you want to hit two birds with one stone. Of course, many people are perfectly serviced with Google Search as well. That is certainly an option.


Chambers Thesaurus

Price: $4.99
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Chambers Thesaurus bills itself as one of those thesaurus apps that can be used by virtually everybody. It features 40,000 indexed words, around 400,000 synonyms and antonyms, and cross-referencing to online and offline dictionaries. The app will also try to help with words that sound like other words and commonly confused words as well. Otherwise, it's a fairly basic app overall. The selection is good and the design is solid as well. It's also a pay once app with no in-app purchases or advertising.

Erudite Dictionary and Thesaurus is one of many thesaurus apps that also doubles as a dictionary. This one has support for over two dozen languages. It also has grammar information, a built-in phrasebook, a word of the day, bookmarks, and even widgets. The app itself uses Material Design and it looks delightful. It covers a lot of bases.

Merriam Webster Dictionary

Price: Free / $1.99
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Most dictionary apps have a thesaurus as well. Merriam Webster dictionary is no different. You get all of the benefits of a dictionary app. That includes definitions, pronunciations, example sentences, and even audio pronunciations. In addition, you get the thesaurus with a bunch of synonyms and antonyms for basically all of the words in the dictionary. That makes it a potent one-two punch. We like Merriam Webster in particular because it also includes fun niceties like a word of the day, vocabulary games, and little extras like that. Plus, it works offline for most functions. Only a few of the features absolutely require an online connection to work. Finally, it's free with ads or you can pay $1.99 to remove the advertising. That's very reasonable.

Online Thesaurus

Price: Free
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Online Thesaurus is one of only a few good free thesaurus apps. To start, it supports a little over half a dozen languages. You'll also be able to bookmark your favorite words for quick recall. Along with that, you'll be able to theme the app to your liking, random search (in case you're just curious), and you can backup your bookmarks on Google Drive, Dropbox, or Box. It's not the most powerful thesaurus out there. The user interface is a tad cramped as well. That about sums up our list of complaints. It's pretty good considering its free price tag with no in-app purchases or advertisements.

Pocket Thesaurus

Price: Free / $1.99
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Pocket Thesaurus is another decent option for thesaurus apps. It boasts 90,000 common words with a download size of just 20MB. That makes it great for older devices or those who don't have a lot of storage. Along with that, you'll be able to view a history of your previously searched words, employ a dark or light theme, and it comes with Material Design. That means it's easy to use. The free version comes with all of the features, but it also comes with advertising. The $2.61 pro version removes the advertising.
