Advanced English Dictionary (AED) from Cosmos Chong is just the right app for all those moments when you need to look up a certain word on the spot. While there are many Internet dictionaries out there, AED is much quicker and provides a lot more features; and with an interface very much in tune of that of Windows 8, it is a breeze to use.
AED has more than 400,000 entries, but the interface makes it easy to find what you’re looking for. Just type the word in the search box and a detailed meaning and description will come up. Not only are the explanations clear, but in many cases there are pictures as well.
As a dictionary AED does the job for Windows 8, but it can do a lot more too. You can paste from the clipboard, so there’s no need to type those long complex words, and definition data is stored locally so you can access the information anytime, which is one of its advantages over web-based dictionaries.
AED also has an extensive picture gallery and a fully supported pronunciation. You can also use the dictionary to find related words, useful if you’re writing something and don’t want to use the same phrases over and over. If you want to start a new search, you just type. The words are clickable, and there’s search Charm integrated too.
There are many dictionaries for Windows 8, but AED has a lot of features that make better than the others. It is feature packed but easy to use, making it ideal for casual and advanced users.
