The app offers many great features on both Android and iOS devices:
- Voice search – A much quicker way to look up a word than typing it on your phone. It also beats out Google’s voice search if you’re looking up multiple words as you don’t have to click through the Google search results. Also great in those instances when you have no idea how a word is spelled.
- Offline access – Those of us who write for a living and work in the boonies or on planes without Wi-Fi need to have continuous access to a dictionary even if we can’t get online. This app gives you ready access to the complete Merriam-Webster English Dictionary.
- More than just a dictionary – In addition to merely looking up words, this app also contains synonyms, antonyms, example sentences, and a Word-of-the-Day feature.
The official Merriam-Webster Dictionary is a free Android app supported by ads.
