    Hi,

    I am aware of a number of Free English Dictionary applications out there but i was looking for anyone to give any suggestions from experience on which ones were the best to go for. I hear there are a few that eat a lot of memory.

    Thanks

    I use a dictionary all the time, but I don't have an app - I just have a site bookmarked that I really like.

    Online Dictionary: definitions by WordNet, Webster's, etc. - dictionary.die.net

    I'm not sure if it's an ATT thing, or a Bold thing.. But from the "Go to..." page, under the address bar, there's a search option. I can search either Google, Wikipedia, Live Search, or Dictionary.com

    I usually just do that instead.

    I use the free translator dictionary on crackberrys app store called bbtran. You can look up 50 words a day in the free version. Set the dictionary from english to french (some lang don't display definitions), and you'll get an english definition

    Does anyone know of a free dictionary that can be installed as an app? Using the web is too slow.

    I was just looking into this today - I don't really want an app but the built in search for dictionary.com goes to the normal website - the Bold renders the webpage fine but you have to zoom in to read anything.

    Dictionary.com/Wireless

    I tried the mobile site www.dictionary.com/wml but I got an error when trying to search.

    I agree with Bryan! the search is already there, it makes life super easy! (especially if you just hit G to get back to the goto page from anywhere)

    Any way to get the dictioinary.com app other than Appwod? I get device and carrier not supported after finding it via googling.

    Thanks Matrix (sorry 'bout the typo; that's what happens when I use the physical KB).

    I did find that link, and it installed fine, but the app isn't working for me. I get a "connection couldn't be established" error.
