Fits my needs great - & quite useful!

I've been using this app & another (big-name) dictionary both for a while; not daily, but as needed. I've enjoyed that I don't have to be online to use it, and I've loved for some unfamiliar words, how the Advanced English Dictionary also can give some history of the meaning(s) on the word.

Recently, that other dictionary slipped in ads (not very subtle ones, either), &I went from free to charging to get back the ease of use that I expect in my apps. That one is now *gone*, and this AED app is my undisputed king of my dictionary apps. AED is an excellent dictionary app!

Totally awesome dictionary app! I love it!

Advanced English dictionary & Thesaurus app doesn’t require internet connection, and audio pronunciation works offline. This app has concise definition, and excellent thesaurus with word links. Its word search engine is excellent with very smart word suggestions when I don’t know how to spell the word.

This app is an awesome dictionary. I have been using this app both online and offline. I love it! Thank you!

Excellent Reference Source-Highly Recommended!

In that I read and write quite a bit, the use of a dictionary, thesaurus and finding proper antonyms and synonyms is a must. It is difficult to find the definitions of and use of words that are either rarely or no longer in use. The Advanced English Dictionary & Thesaurus fulfills this need in my endeavors. I most highly recommend this reference source.
