Product details

BDicty (pronounced "bee-dikti") is a specialized application for reference content.

Powered with rich set of language, professional, scientific and even entertainment dictionary lexicons, BDicty will quickly become one of the most valuable and used applications in your handheld.

Pay attention BDicty itself is only a dictionary reader program, not an actual reference dictionary. It does not come with any particular data files (lexcions), but there is a wide selection of such lexicons - both free and commercial - at our website

BDicty is released for standalone product for two reasons: first, to facilitate program updates; users of lexicons or dictionary bundles can only download and install the program update whenever one becomes available. And second, BDicty normally comes in two versions - free and commercial. Both of them allow opening any of the available dictionary lexicons, but the commercial version (whenever available) offers some extra features.

  • As of BDicty 3.1, a commercial version of it is still not available; to see if there is a newer BDicty version, please visit BDicty's home page for Zaurus

  • To install, first download the file (BDicty.ipk) and save it somewhere on your computer; then start Qtopia Desktop and click the Documents icon on the bar on the left. Drag the downloaded file and drop it in the Qtopia Desktop folder (the Z must be in its craddle and connected!). When the file is copied to the handheld, tap the document icon at the upper right corner of the Z to open the documents folder and you will see the package there.
