Interestingly, you can even change that duration too; for example, by default Fora Dictionary suggests words based on your input after one second and you can change that duration from the settings menu to a much smaller number like 50 milliseconds to get instant suggestions. When you type the exact right spellings of your required word, the dictionary shows the meaning and other details of that word.
However, when you write inaccurate spellings and Fora Dictionary could find the exact match; it shows some advanced options to expand the search criteria. The Fuzzy Search feature is advanced search function that searches all the words matching with the word you type. When you select the fuzzy search, it asks you to select the package.

Another great feature is using other sources for search; for example if your desired word doesn’t match, you can search it on Google, Wikipedia, Wiktionary and other applications. You can even add more applications like Yahoo and Bing to search from. Fora Dictionary is definitely a must-have app on every Android device.
