    I've downloaded serveral, but all seems to be for example, "eng-french" etc.

    ANY GOOD ENGLISH DICTIONARIES OUT THERE??

    I use Bdicty and have bought it twice, once for my old PPC and again for the Treo Palm.

    Noah Pro is what I am using. It is good and has a 122,000 word database.

    I tried a ton of them, and I personally think the best by far is PocketLingo 2.0.

    The college version sports like (I think) 260,000 words (American Heritage College Dictionary) with pronunciation keys, etymologies, notes, and usage samples.

    It is solid (OS 5 Treo 600 friendly) and super FAST! You can put the dictionaries (it supports multiples) on an SD card and save RAM. You can get the thesaurus in a combo deal with the dictionary, I think.

    Plus, the user interface is SLICK; it looks professional and clean.

    The one thing that it is weak on is the "English to blah blah.." or "Blah blah to English" or "Blah blah to blah blah" modules. I don't think they have made many, if any. So if you are looking for a bunch of translation-type dicitonaries being offered, you may want to look at something else.

    Anyways, I think it is a really solid product.

    There is a pretty good review of some dictionaries at pdabuyersguide.com. It doesn't mention all the dictionaries previously mentioned on this thread, but it should help.

    Bunches. Like another user, I also have PocketLingo 2.0 dictionary and it's companion thesaurus, Roget's II. They are excellent programs. I also purchased Palm Reader Pro and with it is a free dictionary, Vest Pocket Dictionary. I also looked at six others before buying PocketLingo and decided on it as being the best for my needs.
