Editors’ Notes

True to its name, this gorgeous dictionary defines words in style. With a single search, you can find definitions, synonyms, etymologies, and more. It’s the brainchild of two Delhi-based brothers, Vidit and Mudit Bhargava, who handle the coding and design while their father takes care of the business side.

Excellent App

Easy to use and has a ton of features.

I like how the watch app lets you dictate or scribble.

My only suggestion would be an option to also display word origins on the watch app!

S.till ,

Almost perfect

It’s really nice, but it’s annoying that every time into widget view, it’s starting re-loading the same word.
