MERRIAM Webster Dictionary:
Meet Mr. Webster, Which let’s you take your words offline.Basically, a simpler easy to use the version of dictionary.com app, but it didn’t compromise in getting essentials.
Once you’ve installed Webster’s app, you’ll be greeted with a clean interface. The home page holds the word of the day, which is a great way to increase your vocabulary bit by bit. Of course, you’ll probably open the app to look up a specific word.
While the app will match your search query to similar words in the database. Typing “thought” for instance, also brings up “thoughts,” “thoughtful”, and “thought-out.” If you prefer not to type, you can also use the voice option to speak your query — great if you’re unsure of the spelling.
The actual pages are full of useful info. For most words, you’ll find quick definitions as well as full definitions. Webster also includes example sentences, origins, etymology, and spoken pronunciations. Tapping any word on a page will bring you to the dictionary entry for that word.
Not content to just be a dictionary, you can also switch between a dictionary page and thesaurus page for a word with one tap at the bottom of the screen.
Navigating the Dictionary
Webster has all features in a right place to help you navigate easily. Once you’ve landed on a definition, the app keeps it as a sort of tab at the top of the screen. So, if you go to “fish” and then tap on “animal”, you can slide back to “fish” with a simple swipe to the left.
Additionally, the left slide-out menu has a Recent tab, where you can quickly jump back to words you’ve looked at recently. The app also lets you remove items in this menu if you’d like to clean it up.
When you find a new word to recall, you can tap the heart icon to add it to your favorites. In the slide-out menu, you can access your favorites at any time. This could be useful for learning new words or practicing ones you have trouble with.
