A great tool for people of all ages, the mobile site now includes features such as the ability to toggle between a dictionary and thesaurus, a Word of the Day for broadening vocabulary, and translations from English to a wide range of languages ranging from Spanish to Chinese to Yiddish. For those interested in useful tips and fun facts, the Hot Word blog provides insights on a variety of subjects – from where the Green Bay Packers got the name "packers" to what fonts help readers better retain information.
To help Dictionary.com take full advantage of the power and reach of the mobile web, Trilibis devised a tiered approach. The company grouped devices based on their capabilities and developed a unique user experience for each family of devices. The approach allowed Trilibis to take advantage of the latest web technologies, giving visitors to the Dictionary.com mobile site an app-like feel on smartphones and superphones. Older Blackberry and feature phone users were not forgotten either – their mobile web experience includes access to most of Dictionary.com functionality, packaged in a clean interface appropriate for their device.
Powered by the SmartPath® publishing platform, Dictionary.com’s mobile site also includes Facebook and Twitter integrations, the ability to save favorite and recent words, and a sound pronunciation feature.
