Hi friends,

I want to integrate a dictionary with my project. And I have no idea from where to start.
Is there some utility in android where I can pass word and it gives me result. How can we implement wikitionary.

Please help or suggest some new thing for dictionary integration.

There could be multiple approaches on how this can be done like maintaining a small data base in device. It depends how big you want your dictionary to be. One possible solution would be to integrate with some 3rd party library which exposes some kind of web service which your android app can use. Of course, here the user should be able to connect to internet. So start by knowing how to integrate your app with external web service.
I agree. Here's the link:
