The client wanted BookPro to serve as an offline dictionary for Android. It didn’t necessarily have to be a complex app--just the opposite, in fact. The client wanted a user-friendly program.
When designing BookPro, user-friendliness was kept in mind. It’s a small, simple application that busy users will find convenient, as they can quickly pull it out and look up a word without missing a beat.

- You can type a word into a search bar. A suggested drop down screen will appear showing other options for the word that you may have been searching for (i.e. if you type in ‘book’, it may show other options like ‘bookmark,’ ‘bookend,’ etc.). Once you select the word you wanted to search, it will show you the dictionary definition of the word. You can scroll up and down to view all of the definition.
- The user can scan the word using a native camera to access the dictionary definition of the word that is scanned. You can scroll up and down to view all of the definition.
