  4. Hello,
    A very interesting top but I want a dictionary app that can do:
    -runs in background
    -if I have a word selected in a document, website, etc.., the app automatically “lookup” the selected word in dictionary and display the results (Kindle style)

    Any suggestions?

    Thank you

    • Woww Prakash; what an awesome need you have founded out, interesting! B-)

      I actually have not come across such a dictionary for Android, and I personally feel that, it would be difficult to find such a dictionary, as there is no left click option, where in u can, select the word -> left click -> lookup dictionary! 😀 But there could be some alternate way, difficult to think for at the moment!

      Also I don’t remember any desktop dictionary, which does like this; ofcourse there are built in dictionaries in MS – Office, which provide the treasures, but for other documents like PDF files and web pages, I have not seen any such dictionary software!

      Do you know any desktop dictionary app which performs in this way? If yes, please share the details here, I will love to give it a try for sure! 🙂

    Hi Zainil, Hope your are doing great.

    You listing about these dictionary is good. I have used the wordweb. It quite good and has lots of word that I could find. The free version don’t has a voice speech. But in paid version, one can listen the pronousation of the word too. That’s the awesome feature of this dictionary.

    I will try the other dictionary too. Thanks for sharing it
