“I was reading a dictionary. I thought it was a poem about everything” said Steven Wright, an award winning actor and writer. Having this thing for dictionaries, I totally agree with Steven and I am sure many of you will too. My tryst with dictionaries began way back in my school days when Miss Gomes would insist on our carrying a dictionary to class. Those were the days. But what joy! Here at Global Delight I get to work with dictionaries again! Yup, I am referring to WordDigest, the English Dictionary, Thesaurus and Spell Checker app for the iPhone/iPod touch. All of you have loved this app, now you have more reasons to love it. WordDigest v1.2 is out with a sleeker and nicer UI and additional features. Have a look at what the UI looks like now:
From the screenshots you may have guessed what the new features might be. Lemme list them down:
# Words of the day: Five random words appear as you start the application. Click on any one of them and their meaning appears. You can go back to the Words of the Day by clicking on the Featured tab in the menu bar.
# Crossword and Anagram Solver: Crossword enthusiasts are going to love this feature. Type in the answer pattern and a list of probable solutions will appear.
# Tab customization: With this feature you can choose to re-arrange the menu items thus giving you a lot more flexibility.
# Pull up Menu button: When you use the Dictionary feature, on selecting a word, you will notice a pull up menu button appearing. Once chosen you have an option of favoriting the word, send the word and its meaning via mail, make notes if any or use the web to know more about that word.
# Notes: An interesting feature of the new version is the ability to make notes against any word. You can thus note anything interesting that you may have come across for that word.
# Mail: Enables you to instantly send the meaning of a word across via email.
