SynMap is a visual dictionary that helps to discover word meanings
and their relations with other words in intuitive and interactive way.
Search for a word and SynMap will create a map of word meanings
connected to other meanings and words through links that represent
semantic relations such as synonyms, hypernyms and antonyms.
Meanings are represented as circles of four different colors
corresponding to four parts of speech.
If you move a cursor above a circle SynMap shows the meaning accompanied by a few examples.
SynMap is powered by WordNet 3.0 © 2006 Princeton University.
Word maps are visualized using force-directed algorithm.
Interactive maps of 145,000 words and 120,00 meanings
Voice pronunciations (requires Internet connection)

Having a dedicated word finding app installed locally on your machine is awesome. SynMap is the only alternative I can find to the monthly payment, subscription web-based word finders.
SynMap in conjunction with an app like BBT allows you to make a trackpad gesture to open SynMap and automatically put the cursor in the search box.
