Dictionary's intelligent word suggestion and search feature eliminates the need for a cluttered index interface.
Equally useful as a dictionary with intelligent word lookup, as a fast spell checker or as a Wikipedia web browser, Dictionary is fast and easy to use.

Features:

- Extensive hyperlinked dictionary with 150,000 entries.
- Large and growing collection of 2000+ illustrations for 4000+ terms including maps and national flags for most countries. The collection will continue to grow with future Dictionary updates (internet connectivity is required for illustrations).
- Fully integrated dictionary, thesaurus, wikipedia browser (internet connectivity is required for accessing wikipedia) and rhyming dictionary.
- Customizable definitions let you select what you want to see. You can display synonyms, antonyms (opposite words), hypernyms (more general words), hyponyms (more specific words) and related words (category words).
- The only dictionary in the app store with advanced high quality Text-to-Speech capability to say defined words out loud (tap the 'speaker' button to hear the word).
- Pronunciation guide in either IPA or Merriam-Webster style notation.
- E-mail button to e-mail word definitions, allowing you to access them anywhere.
- Intelligent word search and spell check
- Word Shake to learn new words and to expand your vocabulary and knowledge. Shake your iPhone to learn about a new word or topic. When Dictionary is used primarily as a Wikipedia browser, shaking your iPhone will display a random Wikipedia topic.
- Bookmarks for selected words.
- History of previously searched word.
- Optional translation of words being looked up to Spanish, Italian, French, German and Japanese. Translation uses Google translate and requires an internet connection.

Note that Dictionary does not require an internet connection.

Version 3.0 (Apr 06, 2009)

* Improved definition format. Definitions can now be customized to optionally display synonyms, antonyms, hypernyms, hyponyms and related category words. Customize definition display in Dictionary settings.
* Category words - a unique Dictionary feature that provides - sometimes surprising - insight into the relation of words to each other. For example, the word "lion" is obviously related to the words leopard, jaguar, panther, tiger, cheetah and sabertooth. Not so obviously, "lion" is also related to luminary, personality and notability. Category words can be a great aid in finding related words that are not necessarily synonyms. Category words are off by default. Enable category words in Dictionary settings.
* Improved Google Translate based translation for words in Spanish, Italian, French, German and Japanese. An internet connection is required for word translations. Translation is off by default. Enable translation in Dictionary settings.
* Moved Dictionary settings to the iPhone general settings app.
