Forgot your password? Releases Free BlackBerry App

Quite a few readers let me know that 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 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 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.

  1. App World offered Version 1.0, but said not available for Storm.
    Tom’s link offered a Version 0.2.252 to my Storm.

  2. And all the mentions have bumped it to #3 on Top Free Downloads in App World (behind App World itself and BBM5).

  3. Another link is at the top of This page also provides a browser-based implementation that does not require the installation of an app.

  4. Those dictionaries come in very handy. For the E71 I own Nokia also offers free dictionaries. Although their app is not as extended as this application. Of course anything free is good!

  5. I will not be downloading this app since the Curve already has a search option for in the browser search bar. I would download the dictionary if it stored definitions locally (on the removable card), and it had the ability to select text in any other app to look it up.

  6. Has anyone else had a problem with a “cannot connect to server” error? The install completes and the BB reboots, but this error comes up immediately upon starting the app. I’m using a BB 8120 and I’ve tried downloading from both appworld and

  7. Does this app get installed locally..?
    Does it use the data connection (internet) for every word I search..?

    • The app installs locally BUT requires a data connection for any functionality. It cannot look up a word without contacting its server. That’s lame. 🙁

      That said, since Verizon has started removing from your browser search bar, the app becomes marginally more useful.
