These might interest you

Features

  • More definitions and synonyms than any other dictionary for any handheld. These all stem from an awesome 145,000 + definitions. Compare that with the next biggest Palm dictionary, ProWord has over 20,000 more definitions
  • Incredibly small file size: thanks to our bespoke, next generation, text compression techniques. With ProWord we have compressed nearly 24 megabytes of information into a mere 5 megabytes
  • Much faster than any other Palm dictionary: ProWord's engine leaves the competition eating word-dust. Its fast, very fast. Even on low end devices or running from the card
  • The Intuitive Tab based interface allows for easy and refined usage.
  • Big (5.5 Meg) and Small (2.5 Meg) versions available: For those who don't want to have the full dictionary we have included a smaller data set that still contains a massive 60,000 core definitions
  • Highly functional and intuitive tab based interface.
  • Runs from Card or internal memory and works on OS5.

      [5/5] "After reviewing several of the usual dictionaries for the Palm I decided on Proporta. Not only is it fast, and very complete, but all the information is stored on the expansion card. All definitions are broken down as to noun, verb, etc by handy tabs & examples/synonyms are given. Great value!"<p><a href='http://www.handango.com/PlatformProductDetail.jsp?siteId=1&jid=C942A9539FBA3A7936CD8AAF584EDB1C&productId=47684&optionId=1_1_2&productType=2&catalog=1&txtSearch=proword&sectionId=0&platformId=1' target='_blank'>http://www.handango.com/PlatformProductDetail.jsp?siteId=1&jid=C942A9539FBA3A7936CD8AAF584EDB1C&productId=47684&optionId=1_1_2&productType=2&catalog=1&txtSearch=proword&sectionId=0&platformId=1</a></p>

      " If you are looking for an English dictionary for your Pocket PC then you should definitely try out ProWord. The dictionary is very fast and has an abundance of definitions and a thesaurus. I particularly like the way that the dictionary is presented in terms of the form structure, however I think that the general aesthetic could be improved with some more colourful buttons and interface elements. It would also be nice if the definitions had pronunciation guides and perhaps some kind of etymology. Other than these criticisms this is - to my knowledge at least? the most comprehensive, speedy and powerful lexicon available for the Pocket PC platform. "
