iRef.app: A comprehensive reference application for your iPhone

Today, the boys of i (dot) g are pleased to announce the Beta release of a full suite of Reference searching web applications for your iPhone. This suite incorporates the three most widely used Reference searches on the Internet today. The web applications we are releasing today will transform the way you use those sites on your iPhone, both today and in the future.

  • iWiki.app brings the imense information of the ever popular Wikipedia to your iPhone
  • iWord.app puts the American Heritage Dictionary right at your fingertips
  • iwUrd.app is your other "dictionary" application, designed with your street cred in mind. Stay up to date with definitions from the Urban Dictionary
  • iRef.app brings it all together into one small application that envelopes all three reference searches. All of the applications use a simple, clean, and intuitive interface that makes navigation and searching easy for any user.


These web apps have all been optimized for EDGE network so loading times are not a concern.

These are just samples of some of the innovative, straight-forward and simple to use iPhone web applications that you can expect from us going forward.

Stay tuned!

Urban Dictionary Search Integration is LIVE

After a FULL evening of coding we have whipped up and pushed live the first version of the Urban Dictionary search capabilities.

First off a disclaimer for those who are not aware of what Urban Dictionary is...

From urbandictionary.com -

"Urban Dictionary is a slang dictionary with your definitions. Define your world."
"Urban Dictionary is not appropriate for all audiences. "

That said, the boys of i (dot) g are not responsible for your 12 year old finding out the definition of "shrimping"... and no, I'm not talking Forest Gump here.

Improvements include:

  • Added core search functionality for Urban Dictionary (currently grabs the first page of results - to be expanded in future releases)
  • Made the reference source you select "sticky" (this means that it remembers that you just searched Urban Dictionary)
  • Began Synonym search development for the Dictionary search (it works, we just have to format the data and push it live for you)

Short list for tonights long work, but as we've said these releases will keep coming fast and furious so keep an "i" on us (excuse the pun).

Goodnight and Cheers,

the boys of i (dot) g
