Known as America's most respected dictionary and one of the most used dictionaries around the world, the Merriam-Webster Dictionary app now comes to you on your mobile device. The app is sized at 186 MB and is supported on iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. It also offers an Apple Watch app that can be geted to the iPhone and connected to the wearable device.

If you are looking for an app that can help build your vocabulary and give you a better understanding of the English language, the Merriam-Webster Dictionary app is the only option for you.

Unlike traditional dictionaries, the Merriam-Webster Dictionary app includes an integrated thesaurus that brings antonyms and synonyms within the app itself.
