ENGLISH FOR THE 21st CENTURY — Powerful, precise, practical. Premium dictionaries and guides with dark mode, pronunciation, and access within your apps. One month free!

Antidote Mobile offers rich definitions, abundant synonyms, plentiful word combinations and much more, in an elegant and efficient interface. Use powerful search engines to find rhymes, anagrams, and other fascinating links between words, even with wildcards. Listen to words in all their forms in either a London or Toronto accent. Display an interactive map or satellite photo of cities, countries and regions, or of UNESCO World Heritage sites. Follow smart links to detailed encyclopedia articles on Wikipedia, or to your own favorite Web resources.

From spelling to style through grammar, punctuation and history, Antidote’s guides cover all aspects of writing in English. Over 500 articles are organized in a clear tree structure with a comprehensive index and fast search.

In Discovery Mode, ask for rare words, famous people or Heritage sites, and Antidote will display them in a random sequence. Create word lists that you can review and share with friends or students. Test your lexical knowledge with the game mode: guess the name of a country, city, person and more based on their definitions, and post your results on Facebook or Twitter.

Antidote Mobile doesn’t need an Internet connection†. It is offered as a one-year renewable subscription, either by itself or as part of an Antidote+ package (Druide account required).
