CUP puts dictionary app on Amazon Underground

Cambridge University Press has made its Cambridge English Pronouncing Dictionary available as an app through Amazon’s Underground.

Android users can download the app version of the dictionary free on Underground, Amazon’s new mobile shopping experience.

The app is the first to be put out by a book publisher through Underground.

Mila Rendle, head of consumer at Cambridge University Press, said: “We are delighted to be a part of Underground and to be the first university press experimenting with this new approach to distribution of mobile apps.  In the context of education and learning, being able to reach a wide audience with free content is an exciting development and one that fits our purpose of furthering the University’s mission by disseminating knowledge in the pursuit of education, learning and research.”

The app version of the Cambridge English Pronouncing Dictionary contains over 215,000 audio pronunciations of words, names and phrases.
