This is Merriam-Webster's dictionary app. Although it's free, it's quite impressive. But beware of the ad bar that runs along the bottom.

I love it because students can conduct a voice search. This makes so much sense! If a student doesn't know how to spell a word in the first place, how can they "go look it up"?! (Those of you that are teachers may say that phrase a lot!) There's also an option to type in the word - letter by letter - until the intended word appears.

Each listing includes various meanings (when applicable), a recorded pronunciation, and any available synonyms and/or antonyms.
