The BEIKS Dictionary Reader (aka "BDicty", pronounced "bee*dik*ti" ) is a reference viewer for mobile platforms and the second dictionary application ever made for Palm OS.
Powering a large set of language, professional, Christian, scientific and even entertainment dictionary databases, the BEIKS Dictionary Reader will quickly become one of the most valuable and used applications in your handheld.
Pay attention that BEIKS Dictionary Reader itself is only a software application and not a dictionary; much like with the e-books, one needs a program and a document (in our case a dictionary) in order to do something useful.
There is a wide selection of lexicons available for the BEIKS Dictionary Reader - both free and commercial - at http://www.beiks.com and all around the Net.
We do not beat drums announcing we are the best on the market as others do, although this may very well be the case. But it is your judgment to make.
We dare to claim, however, that we are working hard to provide you - our customers - with what you request: a robust and useful Palm dictionary solution at a fair price.
This application is driven by you, our customers, and so are we.
The BEIKS Dictionary Reader is a proud owners of numerous awards, including the prestigious Best Customer Reviews award for 2000 by Handango.
