The Windows 8 consumer preview is out !
You can find a lot of information and download links on this page : http://preview.windows.com.
I am not used to speak about the apps I work on but this time I have too!
It’s several weeks now that I work on the ‘Larousse illustré’ version for Windows 8. You can now find it on the windows store (french version only).
It was a really nice experience with great people involved and I am lucky that my company (Infinite Square) let me be a part of such a great project !
Now, let’s speak about the app !
Our goal was to create the best user experience when using the dictionary and to provide the users a way to quickly find a word from anywhere.
The full definition of a word is displayed in an horizontal panning view. No need to wait for the data to load, no need to choose between sections : all is here, ready to be consumed by the user ! There is a lot of content available : definition, conjugaison, homonymes, synonymes, expressions, media, etc.
The app is, of course, fully integrated with the system and you can search from the charm. The app suggest you words and you are redirected directly to the chosen one !
I am really enthusiast to be able to share what I consider as a really great app with you all. These screen-shots are just a teaser and I really incite you to download windows 8 and then to try the app !
If you enjoy it, don’t hesitate to share it around to your friends !
Finally, I would like to thanks everyone with which I work(ed) on this project (David, Philippe, Vincent, Vivien, Florent, Patrice, Thomas, Simon, Noëmie, Daphné, etc.) 🙂
