Macquarie Essential Dictionary

Price: $4.49
Platform: Android, <="" a="" rel="noopener noreferrer nofollow"> (iPhone and iPad)

The Macquarie Essential Australian Dictionary app provides you with a reference when you're on the go. You never have to be embarrassed at a business lunch again, or be at a loss when writing a report. It contains over 74,000 definitions, 41,000 headwords, 8000 phrases and 2700 colloquial words and phrases. The app will suggest search terms as you type and will also let you search for similar-sounding words. And, because it's Australian, you'll be able to make sure you're not accidentally adopting American spelling.

This app asks you to complete a survey about your storage requirements and the technology you use, and then allows you look at how other companies would have answered the survey questions, as a benchmark. It also, unsurprisingly, pushes Unisys services, and provides access to reports, infographics and links to research.
