    Are you on 9900? I realised that this doesn't support the 9900, which is unfortunate, as I rely on this application a lot!

    Do you really need an app for it? They seem to have a nice html5 mobile site.

    I used to have it on my older bb phones. I dont think it is supported for OS7 though. Use the universal search feature to just type what you want, and click google to get the definition.

    I just noticed on my 9900 I can set the default search engine to Dictionary.com
    There you go, no need for an app.
    Set your homepage to google and when you want to search a word press G type the word then press enter.

    When I got my 9900 I was surprised to see the app is not supported, one of my most used app on my 9780
    I can use the browser but it is not convinient
    This sucks

    You always have the option of adding the website to your home screen.

    That's pretty close to having an app.

    There are some html5 sites that I like better than the app. EBay is one example.

    The app has useful functions like e-mailing/texting the definitions to a contact with a couple of keystrokes. That's pretty nifty.

    BB browser does that easily, you can send a page address to anywhere you want with 2-3 strokes, not just email and sms but facebook, twitter(direct message and twitt) all IMclients etc

    And best of all, if you use Social Feeds you can send it to ALL in one stroke and it will even shorten the link for you.

    Page address? I don't know what you're arguing for, maybe for argument's sake, but sending the actual definition has its merits. If I needed a definition I would look for it for myself online - why would I need an URL from someone?

    It's one of the sideloads on the 9810 forum's unavailable apps list:

    http://forums.crackberry.com/blackbe...9810-a-644459/

    As the list notes, there's a screen size issue (at least with the 9810, and presumably with all OS7 devices).

    Page address of the definition man, is it not the same thing as sending the definition from an app?

    My point is many websites have really good html5 mobile sites indcuding dictionary.com and it's sily to have an app when the browser is fine.

    Accuweather, Ebay, Gmail, Google.com, youtube, facebook touch are other perfect examples.
