Editors' Review

+

This unsophisticated electronic dictionary is handy for looking up some terms, but the extremely limited word base hinders its usefulness.

The program's drab interface is accompanied by background music; thankfully, there is an option to turn it off. To check a word, simply type it in the query box and the program quickly displays the meaning; However, we were dismayed that several simple words could not be found. The program only has 5,600 words in its database, though you can manually add entries.

For fun, HomeMade Dictionary features a rather challenging word game. Oddly enough, the Cancel button when selecting a dictionary to play actually launched the game.

You'll need Java 1.5 or higher to use HomeMade Dictionary, another hurdle in using this app. With its inadequate database, this freeware isn't one we readily recommend.
