    i know its the opposite of gaming but i was doing my homework today and i couldnt think of what a word meant and i was no where near the internet or a dictionary.
    i think it would be cool if someone made a dictionary app. [​IMG]

    I'd like an advanced dictionary myself, and not something tiny. Something like dictionary.com on the ds without using a Wifi connection would be wonderful.

    This is actually a good idea. Maybe have a certain amount of word on the app and be able to connect to wifi to get more words to save space.

    There's already a dictionary app and several ones at that.

    Forget what they're called though : \

    NewDict I think? iono

    It's also an encyclopedia IIRC. You just have to get the dictionary & encyclopedia files.

    EDIT - It's called NewDictS07m

    Here's a basic DsDictionary

    Here's NewDictS, which is very customizable.

    Both found here a GBAtemp in the Dowload section [​IMG]

    I'll just assume that there's a dictionary out there somewhere that uses the wiki format, in which case you could use dswiki:

    ...word is bondage...

    You can also download the dictionary in .txt format from Moonbooks and use a text editor to scroll through it (or use Vi in DSLinux to be able to search through it).

    but that would take forever

    and won't a developer need to type up ALL the words from a real dictionary while creating such a homebrew? (or unless ALL the words could be exported from a site.. I dunno)
