If I'm online, then Thesaurus.com and Dictionary.com work just fine. However, if I don't want to open up an internet browser just to check for a synonym or a definition, I am stuck. Or I used to be.
WordWeb Review: I Like It. I Really Like It.For the past week or two, I've been trying out WordWeb it's working out well. Best thing? It hangs out on my desktop toolbar, and I can access it even when I'm not online.
Which is great for many reasons including these two:
- WordWeb offers more to me than Scrivener does because Scrivener (a) has no internal dictionary or thesaurus, which I miss from my switch to Scrivener from Word; and (b) I'm not forced to go online via the Scrivener tool to access a thesaurus.
- If I'm writing, then I'm focused on the task at hand. It's really (REALLY) tempting sometimes to go check email or jump onto Pinterest for a quick looksie when Scrivener brings me online to use a thesaurus. WordWeb protects me from this temptation.
Now, is WordWeb as great as my trusty print version? Nope.
It's a nice tool, though, and I think you might find it helpful, too.
Plus, the price is right. It's free.
