750-treo.jpgIf you have already read my previous post about Palm dictionaries you should know that I like carrying some of them in my Treo 650. English language is not my mother-tongue and sometimes when I find a new word I don’t know the meaning of, I am compelled to use the dictionary. But why carry a big, bulky paper dictionary when instead I can have all that I need of in my device? Today I want to speak of another good Palm application I bought some months ago. Its name is MSDict and lets you have some of the most famous dictionaries in your Palm powered device. I personally have the excellent Oxford English Dictionary (English-English) which, useless to say, it is a must if you are learning English language. Let’s see some of its features:

  • Over 240,000 Words and Phrases
  • Over 365,000 alternative and opposite words
  • Word pronunciations
  • Thesaurus
  • History of words

The application itself that makes the dictionary work has some interesting features too namely:

  • Random word (to play with different new English words)
  • Word of the day
  • Wordbook (to put new words in a list for fast retrieving)
  • Qwerty keyboard
  • Different split modes (that let you manage the screen of your device in different ways e.g. the upper part for English words while the lower part for their meanings)
  • Appendixes list
  • Previous and next word button
  • Add/view note
  • Quick dynamic search of words while you type
  • Hyperlinks between different words

Among the dictionaries and applications for MSDict you can choose in the website you can also find: Collin dictionary, Cambridge dictionary, Office suite and System Diet. If you want to know more click here.
