It's a big enough pain to search the house for a dusty old dictionary to find a word's meaning, never mind tracking down that thesaurus you used once or twice in the past couple of decades to find a synonym. Of course, there are all sorts of online dictionaries and thesauruses, but even those don't come close to the ease of using an offline, growing database of words with their definitions, synonyms and a whole lot more.

That's where Artha Portable comes in. It's a thesaurus that downloads in minutes and is then instantly accessible by touching a few hotkeys.

We're not talking about some bare-bones thesaurus with just a few synonyms for the most popular words in the English language. Artha Portable is an open-source database, meaning users are continually updating it with words and their meanings, synonyms, antonyms and much more.

It's based on WordNet, which boasts multiple meanings for countless words by interlinking similar words together. WordNet also includes some cool, albeit hit or miss, information about how common or uncommon a word is.
