Apple iPhone web app provides the preferred Australian English spelling

For those with an Apple iPhone you can now use Word Check to check if you have spelt a word correctly and are using the preferred Australian English spelling. You can also add the web app to your home which makes Word Check incredibly convenient to use.

To add Word Check to your iPhone home page, open up Safari on the iPhone. Now go to the web page Now click on the forward icon and then select Add to Home Screen. Word Check will now be added to your home screen.

The advantage of using the web app over the normal Word Check page is it runs in the full window just like an app you download but there is no need to download anything. As the web app is upgraded you don't need to download anything as the next time you run Word Check by clicking on the icon on your home page you'll see the latest version of Word Check.

Word Check updated to provide spelling suggestions for misspelt words

Word Check provides the preferred Australian English spelling for words and until now provided the word was either found or not found. When a word is misspelt I've always wanted to provide a listed of suggestion words to help people using Word Check.

I've now completed an update to Word Check and now Word Check provides a list of suggested words which will often include the correct spelling of the word you've entered.

For the meaning or definition of words, I've now removed Wiktionary and provide links to a more authoritative resource. Using Word Check is still the best option to check words, as Word Check provides the preferred Australian English spelling. Spelling includes plurals and possessives, which are often not provided with many dictionaries, but often give us the most grief when it comes to spelling.

Please let me know if you find any problems. The dictionary is still evolving so if you find anything you feel needs to be reviewed, please don't hesitate to write to me and let me know.

Word Check is available via the main dictionary page and also directly at

Thank you,

Kelvin Eldridge
