Dictionary.com is an online dictionary whose domain was first registered on May 14, 1995. The company was founded by Brian Kariger and Daniel Fierro as part of Lexico Publishing, which also started Thesaurus.com and Reference.com.
The content for Dictionary.com is based on the latest version of Random House Unabridged Dictionary, with other content from the Collins English Dictionary, American Heritage Dictionary and others.
On Monday, May 3, 1999, Dictionary.com began its Word of the Day feature.
In April 2009, Dictionary.com offered their first dictionary app in the iOS App Store. Since then, they have released the Android version, as well as a standalone thesaurus app called Thesaurus Rex, along with education apps, Dictionary.com Flashcards, Word Dynamo, and Learning to Read with Zoo Animals.
