AHD Dictionary

From the NY Times:

Well, it goes to show, the line between the legacy media and the new media is not as finely drawn as some believe. That is particularly true in this instance, as Houghton Mifflin Harcourt begins a campaign to market the fifth edition of The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language.

Executives at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt say they do not believe they will sell as many print copies of the new dictionary as they did of previous editions. That is why there is a free companion Web site for the dictionary, at ahdictionary.com. That is also why the dictionary is being made available as an app and for e-readers. (The app is free with the purchase of the print dictionary and $24.99 if bought separately. The app is published by Enfour, to which Houghton Mifflin Harcourt has licensed the rights. The e-reader version, from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, has a suggested list price of $60.)
