    Anything free will always have limitations or ads, but you can try Pocket English Dictionary, it's good bought the pro version because I liked it so much, cost like 99 cents, a free weather app is called Weather, it has ads though. There are quite a few others, check BBWorld.....

    I know but checking them all thoroughly takes time and I know at least some people here have actually done the thorough checkings of the apps.

    My first port of call for a native built dictionary is an app called 'Free Dictionary 10' but I also use 'Pocket English Dictionary' as a back up. Both will suffice for everyday use but if you want a really comprehensive dictionary (albeit an Android one) then I'd go for 'Dictionary - Merriam - Webster' from Snap.

    I do not use any Weather apps so cannot make any recommendations in that area.

    Merriam is better than dictionary.com?

    Only if you're American. Merriam - Webster is the definitive dictionary for American English, and nothing wrong with that, it doesn't pretend to be anything else.

    I find that Pocket Dictionary suits me best, as I don't go for needing an internet connection for a basic dictionary and I like the UI. I supplement that with Vocabuilder, which does need an IC but it picks up less common and foreign words well.
    As far as a weather app, since I have to deal with whatever weather I find when I walk out my front door, I don't have any need for.one so can't recommend one either.

    What's wrong with built in weather app? I use it all the time. I once tried beweather 10 pro when it was free before Christmas but it is not any better than stock weather app and not free anymore.

    I also like vocabuilder app - it has second language translation. It can work in offline mode with limited dictionary but it is not free - it is a trial.

    I'd prefer the Dictionary.com app but the apk doesn't seem to work on the current runtime - so Merriam Webster is the next best (working) alternative (imo). It's more comprehensive than the native options listed - so I use it as a fail safe.

    It's also worth mentioning that there is a Dictionary.com app in BlackBerry World - but it has very poor reviews (and is not free, as per the OP's initial request).
