THE FINEST FRENCH REFERENCE TOOL ON iPHONE — Antidote Mobile brings together ten dictionaries and ten language guides of the highest quality for your iPhone.

Enjoy rich definitions, abundant synonyms, complete conjugation tables and much more, with beautiful layout and a clever interface. For instance, the definition of each word includes an etymology, and a sidebar indicates its flexion, its relative frequency, notes on its usage (anglicism, impropriety, homonyms...) and links to related guide articles. Touch any word in any dictionary to see its complete definition, perhaps to verify the meaning of a synonym or to understand an analogy. Touch the Wikipedia link and access detailed encyclopedic articles, without ever leaving Antidote.

From spelling to style through grammar and punctuation, Antidote's guides cover all aspects of writing in French. Over 650 articles are organized in a clear tree structure. Finger-browse through a comprehensive index to find a given article.

Antidote Mobile installs completely on your iPhone or iPod touch and doesn't need an Internet connection (except when following a Wikipedia link). From anywhere and in a few seconds, find the answers to all your questions. Add Antidote Mobile to your iPhone and you will have the French language "dans la poche"!

NOTE: Antidote Mobile is designed for iPhone, but displays its content fullscreen on the iPad. For an interface and content entirely redesigned for iPad, please see the Antidote Ardoise edition.
