Quite a few readers let me know that Dictionary.com has released a free dictionary and thesaurus app for BlackBerry. They claim to be the first free dictionary app for BlackBerry and look pretty positive so far. The app just formats the Dictionary.com website results to work on your BlackBerry with features like recent search terms and the ability to sign up for the Word A Day service. It has some cool integration into the email client for looking up words and synonyms. I was waiting for Dictionary.com to release the app outside of App World but so far it looks like it is only available in the App World at this link.
From the description:
