Will MIcrosoft Bookshelf Work With An Android Tablet?

Sunday, July 27th, 2014 by | Filed Under: Android, Quick Tips

Frank from Michigan writes:

Would it be possible to know if an Android tablet would support Microsoft Bookshelf 98 or Bookshelf 2000? I’m looking for something to use as a comprehensive Dictonary/Thesaurus/ Encylopedia set.

Frank, Microsoft Bookshelf isn’t going be compatible with an Android tablet, Windows and Android are two completely different operating systems. Fortunately, you’ll find a whole lot of options for reference apps over in the Google Play Store.

 When you think about it, the Microsoft Bookshelf was an early version of an app as we know them today.  You can also find eBook versions of these items, but the apps are interactive and usually searchable.

    Why didn’t you tell him about Type in a word and he instantly has every online dictionary with a definition of that word at his fingertips. No extra storage space required on his phone! Of course, this assumes he has an Internet-capable Android, but I’m thinking he couldn’t go to the Play Store if he didn’t. Perhaps I’m wrong there?
