Arcus Dictionary Pro (ADs) is a fast English dictionary with 185000 words, definitions and synonyms available offline.
There are two pro versions, one paid and one supported by ADS. This is the AD supported version.
The pro versions have extra features compared to the basic free version: search web dictionaries, voice search, random word widget, 10,000 more definitions and sample sentences where available.
It is designed to be easy to use and give you the top and most common results for your query. All you need to do is start typing to get results instantly. By default the more probable matches are displayed first although there is an option to display results purely alphabetically too.
The dictionary also supports pronunciations for definitions, a favourites feature, word hyperlinking, sharing and customisation options.
If you have any questions, suggestions or feature requests please email me using the contact option in the Android Market. Unfortunately I cannot respond personally to comments in the market.

Excellent dictionary in Market. Wish if u can add thesaurus & also provide a better colourful layout screen.

1 star for incomplete and censored definitions. Do you people have such low standards as to rate its deficient core function, 5 stars???

Words common but not easy to define are in. So it's a great app. But still need better auto-correct setting.

Best dictionary out there! Fast, minimalist, searches as you type.. the only way it could be better is if it could detect & correct misspelled words.
