    Default Word Definitions like iOS?

    Is there an app that will allow me to highlight a word while browsing the web and get its definition similar to how iOS does? I found and installed iknow Dictionary for Dolphin Browser but I would need to copy and paste into it for my definition.

    A plugin for a browser may help... I was personally going to suggest Dolphin but since that didn't work for you maybe try copying the word into a new tab Google define word search...? It's at least save you the time taken to open up a new app....

    That only works within that specific browser. It's not universal like iOS

    You can install an app called Wordlookup or ColorDict from the play store then highlight the word and select "share" from the text menu and share to any dictionary you install. No it as sleek as iPhone but it does the job.

    I have been looking for a definition app for a long time in Android.
    Maybe Define Now is a free app in the Android Market that may help you.

    ME TOO I have discovered I love the android clipboard, and swipe, but Not having a define option in my emails, notes, texts, and when reading books, is a deal breaker for me. This makes IOS way better in my usage styles. :/
