Despite the “you name it, we’ve it” attitude of Google Play Store, you’d to squat and roll a few times, to find offline dictionary for Android smartphone. Merriam Webster allows users to download the entire database to smartphone, only if you shed a dollar or two(ads will go away, database will come). Another BIG name Oxford Dictionary has written and boasted it in big words “This is a fully functional FREE TRIAL”, no, not an offline dictionary trait, we’re looking for.
Beside these big names, there are few players, who’d allow users to download the dictionary database on their smartphone, which can be accessed, anytime, anywhere, no internet needed, no strings attached!
Take your pick.

Apart from the usual features shared by the aforementioned dictionaries for Android, Dictionary.com stands tall as it offers almost all its features offline as well as online. Beside the common features, Words of the Day, blogs and slideshow are there to teach and add a little learning each day. Audio pronunciation, voice search are some few features that sets this dictionary apart from the other two.
With all these features and bells and whistles, few reviewers had a bad word about the offline version of the same. For me, it turned out fine. Try and let us know, if it behaves well with your device as well.
