This may have been answered many times but as i just unlocked my iphone, and installed summerboard and then a few new apps, i was trying to understand why some icons (eg the game tetris) will automatically show up in the icon list, but others like MERRIAM-WEBSTER DICTIONARY, shows that it has been installed in the installer.app list but does not show up as an icon?
Could anyone explain if i need to do something different or help me understand how to get this application up and running
Thanks in advance:

That dictionary is not an app in and of itself - it is an add-on for the weDict app. Install that and you're good to go.

I am just thrilled to have found this forum
after wading through pages of stuff from the iphone dev team - who have clearly worked very hard , i discovcered the modifymyiphone tutorial and have never looked back
Will try to install the app you talk of above

so i installed weDict v0.4
I also kept the Merriam-webster plugin but didnt do any configuration other than keep it in my installed list
When i test by putting in a word into the weDict app..i get "not found"
Do i need to manually put the merriam webster files in the directories maybe using something like cyberduck? or am i still missing something?

Restart the iPhone.

hhmm strange..well maybe strange for me as a non-programmer but thought i would relay for any other noob...
i tried to power iphone off and on..but still no dictionary database
so i unistalled merriam webster and reinstalled thinking maybe it needs to be put in after WeDic has been installed..
then switched off and back on
Presto its up and running
