Podcast 43: Dictionary.com Mobile User App Behavior Research

In Podcast 43 I speak with Dictionary.com President Shravan Goli. The main topic of this 32 minute 49 second is Dictionary.com’s recent research in how users of different mobile platforms use their mobile apps. Dictionary.com provides mobile apps for the iPhone/iPad, Android, and BlackBerry. The combined download for their apps is over 11 million. About 6.8 million of those downloads have been the iPhone version. The iPad version of their app has been downloaded by 300,000 users (there are about 2 million total iPad users).

Dictionary.com plans to release an API for mobile app developers in 6 to 8 weeks. This will let them develop word games and other word related apps based on Dictionary.com’s word list.
