The English language can be a tricky subject. And, to be frank, not all mobile dictionary apps are created equal. Thus it is with great fan fare that we welcome a new heavy hitter to the stage. The SmartDict English iPhone app from Linguatec is the ultimate resource for information about words, from anagrams to etymology.

If you’re a wordy looking for a great educational resource, or a student who wants easy access to information about words, look no further. Our iPhone app review of SmartDict English has you covered.

Features:

Say so long to flipping endlessly through a massive tome looking for a word. With SmartDict English simply start typing the word you’re looking for. Don’t worry if you aren’t exactly sure how it’s spelled. The SmartDict English iPhone app will give you an extensive list of suggestions that closely match your word.

That’s when this app gets interesting. The word pages are full of information, laid out in an organized manner. You don’t just get a basic definition of the word, you get the pronunciation, contraction information, statistics, integrated synonyms and antonyms, hyphenation rules, related words, origin information, examples, helpful notes and several other useful factoids.
Over 9000 entries actually have offline pictures associated with words for additional contextual information.

There is also a bevy of options to save words you need easy access to in the future, browse your search history, add notes to entries and navigate out of the app for additional photos. The SmartDict English iPhone app means business. We cannot think of anything else a proper word source and dictionary should have. The app is a complete masterpiece.

On the slightly less academic side, the SmartDict English iPhone app also has a variety of skins to customize the look and feel of the app. We prefer the Candy Girl color scheme, with its cotton candy pink headers. There are also many more demure options, of course, including Performance and Deep Blue Sea.
Using the SmartDict English iPhone app is quite easy. The search function is accessible from every page, and a dedicated settings button makes accessing or adding favorites and notes easy.
The result is an app that is excessively pleasant to use. The high quality user interface compliments the app’s high quality content to a T.
Value:
For a limited time this universal dictionary app can grace your favorite iOS devices for the reduced price of $.99. That is much less then you’d pay for a physical dictionary. When you consider the time and effort an app like this will save, the app’s value only increases.
So lovers and students of the English language, your course is clear. Download SmartDict English and never look back.
