The Macquarie Australian Dictionary: Little app features new words and up-to-date definitions such as clean fuel, flashpacker, lifestreaming, textaholic, tidal power and toxic debt, plus usage notes to help with common language problems such as confused words (affect and effect), collective nouns taking singular or plural (media, team, group), words that are restricted in context (pathos is more usually sadness, grocer is somewhat dated), and abbreviations (postscript is abbreviated to PS).

This app is from the publishers of the popular, authoritative Macquarie Dictionary — Australia's national dictionary. The Macquarie Dictionary continues to change, adapt and re-adjust to reflect the Australian language. It includes words that are part of today’s international vocabulary as well as words that are labelled as uniquely Australian such as billabong and bushwalking.
