TUAW reports that Merriam-Webster has today unveiled a free iPad dictionary app, which contains all the definitions from Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, and comes with voice search (courtesy of Dragon Dictation), antonyms and synonyms, example sentences, Word of the Day, and audio pronunciations.
As TUAW notes, although the app is ad-supported, it really is a bargain when compared to the Oxford English Dictionary app which costs $54.99. The app is actually an enhanced version of the Merriam-Webster iPhone app, which was the number 1 Free Reference app on the App Store back in January. The added enhancements introduced for the iPad version of the app include a Scrolling Index, which enables you to browse the whole dictionary, and a Recent History feature, so that you can keep track of the words that you’ve looked up recently. Everyone needs a dictionary at some point or other, so this is a great app to download and keep on your iPad. Even if you don’t need to use it immediately you’re bound to want to look something up at some point.
