== Look Up Words Offline---No Data Charges
Works even when you're in a taxi, train, or street market and not connected to the internet. All entries and sounds are stored right on your Android device.
IMPORTANT: Our app uses Google Play Licensing, meaning your device must be on the internet for a few seconds, once every 15+ days. See: http://word-in-the-hand.com/works-offline
== Listen to Any Thai Word
Touch any Thai word in any of our 150,000+ entries to hear a high-quality sound recording of a native speaker, not a toneless gravelly robot as found in other software. More than 18 hours of studio-recorded sound included with the software!
== Big Text and Clear, Sensible Layout
Our app lets you make the Thai and English text as big as you want! Touch with your finger to scroll through multiple definitions on the screen at once.
== A Dictionary Crafted for Those Learning Thai
Unlike typical dictionaries based on low-quality, free internet data meant for Thai natives, our superb dictionary entries are hand-crafted by Paiboon Publishing with your needs in mind: if you're not familiar with the Thai alphabet, you can even look up Thai words by their sound using an easy-to-read pronunciation guide system (12 popular systems are supported). Hear somebody say "sanuk?" Type "s-a-n-u-k" to find out what it means. All Thai words in every section are written using both Thai Script and your chosen pronunciation guide system(s).
Unlike dictionaries meant for Thais, we list crucial Thai classifiers for more than 15,000 noun entries, we notate syllable stress, and we clarify subtle shades of meaning and formality using English explanations.
== Useful Vocabulary
Whether you are visiting Thailand for a short while or living there, you will find most of the vocabulary used in everyday life, including basic medical, cultural, political and computer terms. A mind-blowing 150,000+ entries in the palm of your hand.
== Find Words Inside
Touch any Thai word to see all the other dictionary words contained inside it. This fun feature is great for learning how complex ideas are expressed in Thai, and learning new words!
== Introduction to Thai Included
More than just a dictionary or translator, our software includes a comprehensive, interactive introduction to the Thai language, including a "Speaking and Understanding" section with clickable sounds, and a "Reading and Writing" section with all consonants/vowels in multiple fonts.
== Learn Real-World Thai Script
You've probably noticed that the Thai letters appearing on signs and menus in Thailand often look nothing like those in textbooks. Touch any Thai word to see it written in a set of real-world fonts that you are likely to see on signs, menus, documents, and even in Thai handwriting.
== Explain Spelling
With our ground-breaking "Explain Spelling" feature, you can touch any Thai word and call up a visual explanation of its vowels, consonants, and tone.
