Exactly what you ios excapees are looking for! Works like it does in iOS, in fact better! When highlighting a word in Play Books, the definition automatically comes up. It's great!
I would like a button to dismiss the pop-up Good app. However, I would rather have the pop-up dismissed by pressing or tapping it rather than by timer. Sometimes I need the pop-up up for a second and sometimes longer. Dismissal by press would work a lot better than timer for me. If this is implemented, I would rate this four or five stars.
What an Android user needs Well. This is a great response to iOS built in dictionary. This app is cool, helps you in a way that a built in dictionary would do. The only thing it needs imo is offline support just like on iOS. I wish Google also comes with a built in dictionary support on Android L.
Almost perfect Very useful app, specially when you consider that android doesn't have a built in dictionary. One problem with the app, there's no option to remove the time limit completely. I wish the pop up would just stay there until I close it manually.
Migration blues sorted On migrating back to android after using iphone for quite a while, i was missing a few iphone exclusive functionalities. Like the iphone dictionary which can be commanded at will, at any time. This dilemma has been sorted out for me to a certain extent by this app! I can now look up words from anywhere i can select a word and share it. It will mostly be usable on a browser or similar apps. Clever! Although i still wish that without rooting i could have the ability to look up words from anywhere in the phone
Much needed! An app I've been waiting for! Happy to find it. However, I would like the popup to be a real window that stays open until you click an X to close it. I'm not a fan of the toast popup that has the anxiety-inducing self-destruct timer.
