Get Gooder Vocabulary: Dictionary.com | NicNeely, Gizmos Freeware

NicNeely begins this review of Dictionary.com noting that finding an online dictionary is no big deal; it's an easy search. Instead:
Dictionary.com here is a free app that gives me so much more than just definitions. It has become one of the most used apps on my phone and is well worth taking a closer look for this week.
The review describes the three basic functions of the website:

Daily, which contains a Word of the Day, an informative Hot Word article about linguistics, and a trivia-laden Question of the Day.

Search, which allows you to find any words from the dictionary, by speaking them or typing them in the search box.

Trends, which gives users a view of the most searched words in their area and the most searched words within a time period.
