unnamed (7) [1]AntTek Dictionary is a dictionary that aims to give you access to information no matter where you are in the operating system.  This app is great for those who like looking up words when they don’t know what they mean. It is also great for those who are learning a new language and need easy access to information.

What is it and what does it do

Main Functionality

This app is a very simple and functional dictionary. It only aims to provide definitions for unknown words without disrupting your workflow courtesy a “floating window” that appears on top of any app you are currently in.

Pros

  • Offline support
  • Look up multiple dictionaries at a time
  • Search while using other applications
  • Look up most major languages

Cons

  • Floating window is difficult to read on high resolution screens

Discussion

unnamed (6) [2]AntTek Dictionary is an incredibly simple application that simply serves as a word database. Dictionaries are becoming an extremely underrated source for information. We encounter content online that stems from millions of people all over the world. It is only logical that users come across words that aren’t familiar to them quite occasionally. Additionally, dictionaries are also fantastic when you are working with a language that you are not fluent in as there can always be some words you have never seen before.

For the most part, this app looks and behaves like a traditional dictionary. The claim to fame is that the dictionary is functional even while you are in other apps. With the utilization of a floating window, you can get easy access to information without leaving the application or even losing sight of what you are doing. Additionally, the app uses a vast amount of dictionaries in an equal amount of languages. This means that you will have access to nearly any traditional word you come across.

Conclusion and download link

Generally speaking, this app does exactly what its supposed to do. As a result, there are very few negative aspects other than the difficulty the app has while performing on high-resolution tablets. Beyond that, the app makes looking up unknown word incredibly convenient. As far as dictionaries go, this app is slightly treading on perfection.
