|BDicty (pronounced "bee-dikti") is a specialized application for reference (dictionary) content.
Powered with rich set of language, professional, scientific and even entertainment dictionary lexicons, BDicty will quickly become one of the most valuable and used applications in your handheld.
Pay attention that BDicty itself is only a dictionary program and not a dictionary; much like with the e-books, one needs a program and a document (in our case a dictionary) in order to do something useful.
There is a wide selection of lexicons available for BDicty dictionary reader - both free and commercial - at http://www.beiks.com and all around the Net.
In the Palm world, BDicty Dictionary comes in two versions: Light (Public) and Pro (Commercial). Both versions can open and work with any of the available dictionary lexicons.
The light version is free for download and personal use, but lacks some of the features of the Pro version.
Except in dictionary bundles, the Pro version is a separate product from any of the commercially available dictionary files (lexicons) and can be purchased separately if needed.
We do not beat drums announcing we are the best on the market as others do, although this may very well be the case. But it is your judgment to make.
We dare to claim, however, that we are working hard to provide you - our customers - with what you request: a robust and useful Palm dictionary solution at a fair price.
This application is driven by you, our customers, and so are we. BDicty and Beiks are proud owners of the Handango Customer Reviews award for 2000.
