Merriam-Webster Dictionary 

Merriam-Webster's Dictionary is a free app you can download on your iphone/android to improve your vocabulary.  My students appreciate this app for all of its convenient features.  I always encourage students to keep a vocabulary notebook they can easily access and read to brush up on their vocabulary.  Of course, we all know it is one thing to learn a new word, but to retain this word and actually use it in conversation can be the biggest challenge.  A couple of great things about this app:  There is a save feature (in the shape of a heart) at the bottom of a given word.  When you click on this heart, it automatically saves it to your favorites.  If you click on the 3 bars on the top left hand corner, you will see your list of 'favorites'.  Another great feature is that you can have access to definitions even without internet access.  

Download this app to help increase your vocabulary :).
