You can create a free account, integrate your contacts from other IM services, and video conference with up to 20 people at the same time using your computer’s webcam.

  • There are plenty of dictionaries online but they all work on the principle of one word at a time. If you have a whole list of words that you want to see their definition and synonyms, it can be a real hassle. For situations like these, use EasyDefine. It is a slick new app that lets you input a list of words and generate definitions for it.

    EasyDefine lets you view a detailed or a quick definition of all these words along with synonyms. If you want, you can also number your list or alphabetize them. Once you have the definitions of the complete list, you can also download them as a MS Word document or email it to somebody. A How To Use section provides detailed instructions on using the EasyDefine tool.

    * Define a list of words.
    * See detailed definition, quick definition and synonyms.
    * Download or email the results.
