Comments on: Noah Dictionary Review

One of the many advantages of the Palm is that no matter how much information you cram into it, it doesn't get any bigger. This encourages many people to cram as much reference material into their Palm as possible to reduce the amount of paper they have to carry around. An excellent example of this is Noah, a freeware app that allows you to carry a whole dictionary around in your handheld.

I was just thinking about Palmable dictionaries today so this review came in handy. Now if only I can see a review of the Springboarded one for the Visor (I think Landware will be producing it). mc

I am really quite surprised that you gave Noah such a low rating. I don't know how many people would put together one Dictionary let alone 4 for the price of nothing. My hat is off to the developer. Maybe I missed something, but I think he deserved a great deal higher rating for his efforts. I have the medium version and LIKE it.

Thanks Krzystof Kowalczyk

The best dictionary for the Palm OS.I rate this dictionary 5 stars.I rate ED's review 4 stars, & his rating opinion ZERO. Wake up ED !, It deserves 5 stars.

absolutely great

this is absolutely great. i have been looking for something like this for quite some time.

Hello! Are you rating the right app????

3 1/2 for cost benefit??? How can the cost (zero) to benefit (100%) get a 3 1/2??? Also, compared to Beiks minusucule English dictionary this just blows the competition out of the water! And Beiks wants $15.00 for their paltry 17000 word dictionary!!! You did notice it's FREE didn't you? As for Coolness, everyone I've shown this program to is always completely amazed-Whenever I'm selling someone on Palm, or converting them from going over to the dark side, This is now one of the showcase apps I pull up (along with CityTime, AvantGo, and AlbumToGo).

And three for Design?? Hello! Do you see anyone else designing a FREE open-source 122,000 word dictionary for the Palm??? Do you even see anyone developing one that large for a price? True there are a few features I'd like to see, like having it remember the last word I looked up and higher compression- but this isn't even version 1.0 yet- And it's been completely stable on my IIIc- wish I could say the same for some of the comercial apps I've tried! Personally I'd give this a 5+ This is one of the most useful apps for the palm I've seen yet. Definately worthy of a much higher rating.

I've used the Noah Wordnet dictionationary and it is definately a great product. Very stable, very useful, very free. It really deservers a 5+ rating instead of the 3.5 it got here -- too bad.
