Whether this has been around for some time or not, rest assured very few people are aware of it. Google has a dictionary.
The app provides definitions and synonyms in almost thirty different languages, pulled from a scope of different sources and impressively fast.
Words can be “starred” to come back to for whatever reason, you can view your recent searches and easily switch to other languages if necessary.
The worlds most popular online dictionary is Answers.com and should the word get out, its likely it will be the company to feel the greatest brunt of the launch. Up until now, clicking “definition” button at the top right of all Google searches for words would direct users to Answers.com site, no prizes for guessing where that takes you to now.
You’ll find Google Dictionary here.
