THE FINEST FRENCH REFERENCE TOOL FOR iOS — Antidote Mobile brings together multiple dictionaries and language guides of the highest quality for your iPhone or iPad.

Antidote Mobile offers you rich definitions, abundant synonyms, complete conjugation tables and much more, with an elegant and efficient interface. Use powerful search engines to find rhymes, anagrams, and other fascinating links between words, even with wildcards. Display an interactive map or satellite photo of more than 11,000 cities, countries and regions, or of 1200 UNESCO World Heritage sites. Follow smart links to detailed encyclopedia articles on Wikipedia, or to your own favorite Web resources.

From spelling to style through grammar, punctuation and history, Antidote’s guides cover all aspects of writing in French. Over 830 articles are organized in a clear tree structure with a comprehensive index.

In Discovery Mode, ask for rare words, famous people or Heritage sites, and Antidote will display them in a random sequence. Add your findings to word lists that you can review and share with others. Test your lexical knowledge with the game mode: guess the name of a country, city, person and more based on their definitions, and post your results on Facebook or Twitter.
