As advertised but 3 stars for me for these reasons: It need internet connection to work, you have to select the word ,then click the search button, then select the app to get the pop up window with translation. I am not a lazy guy but convenience and speed is the whole point of having pop up dictionary. This app does not serve that purpose.
At Last! I've been looking for an app that does this exact job for months! THANK YOU! It works really well, too. My only complaint is the part related with the definition fading out on its own. Would it be possible to change that so it's removed with a small x box/back button or something? If not, don't worry about it. ;) Thanks for the EXTREMELY useful application, guys. Your work is marvellous. ^__^
Not quite there yet As per previous reviews, can you make it skip the share step and put offline dictionary on the sd card...otherwise there's not much difference with just sharing a highlighted word with Google translate. Also I tried to look up some Chinese words but it didn't work. How can I fix this? Your long term goal should be to make this like Lingoes for Android.
Very nice and useful, but... The app is definitely has a very good idea behind it. But it should be better implemented on definitions. I. E. If I select "habits" the definition shouldn't be only "the plural of habit", but the definition of the singular name too! Hope this gets fixed so I can rate the app properly!
Good but... For some reason after finding a definition the pop up screen flickers then stabilizes. Any fix for this? Also a feature where maybe you double tap the definition to make it disappear so you can keep the display time extended but quickly dismiss the definition if wanted/needed would be awesome.
One thing missing On my iPhone I could type a word, select it, then look it up in the dictionary or have it spoken. This app only allows you to do that for already written text. If this one improvement could be implemented, I would gladly rate this app five stars. Other wise it suffices.
