Dictionary.com Launches API Development Center

Posted Oct 10, 2010

Dictionary.com has released a new service called the API Development Center. Dictionary.com now has APIs available for the public at the Development Center to make apps and services work their website content. Dictionary.com’s APIs also include developer access to content on Thesaurus.com and Reference.com.

Developers can build Dictionary.com access into their applications without making users open a new browser or use the Dictionary.com app. Their API gallery include Facebook games and applications created for iOS, Android, and BlackBerry.

There is a number of free and paid options for API access at the API Development Center. Dictionary.com accepts license fees or revenue-sharing deals. Dictionary.com is owned by Ask.com, a subsidiary of InterActiveCorp.
