We’ve all be in a situation when someone is talking to us and they say a word that we don’t quite know the meaning to. But we don’t want to come off stupid so we just pretend that we know what they’re talking about. The obvious solution is a pocket dictionary, right? Sure just pull it out mid-sentence and see how far that gets you. The real answer is your BlackBerry, but my BlackBerry doesn’t have a dictionary. Well now it does! Introducing, Collins Essential Dictionary from Mobile Systems.
This application is exactly what the title describes, a dictionary that’s essential to have. Collins Essential Dictionary contains over 80,000 English words and comprehensive definitions. So you’ll always know what the definition is. For example, say you’re in a business meeting and someone asks if you think the projects design is cogent. Well just whip out your BlackBerry and pretend like your reading an email, but secretly you’re on Collins Essential Dictionary scanning for the definition. Then you proudly and intelligently give a smart answer. Then your boss thinks you’re so smart that he gives you a promotion!
Ok so maybe this application won’t get you higher up the career ladder. But it will improve your vocabulary and make you seem more intelligent. The application is easy to use and installs in minutes. All you do is type in the word and you’ll have a list of definitions a few seconds later. If you need a list of synonyms or antonyms then just switch over to the thesaurus option. You can even switch between a few basic languages. Collins Essential Dictionary is backed up and updated daily from a data bank of 2.5 billion English words, so you’ll always have the latest info.
I would recommend this application for just about anyone, because you’ll never know when you might need it. It’s a handy tool to have but does come with somewhat of a steep price tag of $9.99. But the price tag does include infinite knowledge!
