A quick, useful resource for finding definitions and synonyms.

Community Review for Dictionary - Merriam-Webster
A useful resource, especially when paper dictionaries are not available, or with young students or ELL. The audio feature allows you to speak the word you are looking for, so you don't need to know the spelling. It will also read the word to you. It is only text, no graphics.
How I Use It
I have used this app with students who take a long time looking up words, or who may have missed a day, and need to catch up. It is also valuable for looking up synonyms. As with most technology, they are more motivated to use this dictionary than the traditional book.
