I love it! simple & nice.
However, it is not a offline dictionary. So, sometime it is not useful.

Do Not Download

This is a poor simplification of what a proper dictionary should be... Or at least of what previous incarnations of MS Word taught us to expect. The sample sentences are only random strings drawn from around he internet and there's a positively useless first page of "definitions" before you get anything that remotely resembles useful. Don't download; you'll be sorry you did.

Misleading and Disappointing!!!

When one enters a word for definition, this dictionary puts together, indiscrimatingly, a bunch of sentences as examples of usage. Many such sentences come from online sources where English is clearly not a native language. For instance, many examples cited come from various Chinese sources marred by glaring grammatical errors! It is very unfortunate that Bing puts forth this kind of shoddy product. It diminishes the reputation of Microsoft! As a dictionary, it is very, very misleading and should be taken off the web IMMEDIATELY!!!

UI Inconsistency

the app is great but it feels like it isn't part of the new Office because of its "old-fashioned" UI. to think that Microsoft made both, i expected to have some parallelism in the UI. but UI aside, the app is very helpful and efficient.

Bing gives very simple definitions, with some synonyms, however the given sentences that contain the word usage are taken from internet web pages with a reference note directing you to the page.
Often the sentences do not make sense and displays incorrect usage of the word. The sentences are not taken from proven academic sources and cannot be trusted.
