Dictionary Apps

Brick-and-mortar dictionaries have always proven themselves as invaluable resources, albeit extremely bulky and often inconvenient to utilize when they’re needed most. The web has resolved that problem, with world renowned dictionaries such as Merriam-Webster providing robust online versions of their dictionaries available to be browsed by everyone.
