Send To Dictionary


Look up words in a dictionary from a browser or other apps instantly without copy-paste like a real natively integrated dictionary app.

Now two ways to use!
1. Send/share the selected word(s) to Send To Dictionary.
2. (NEW) Clipboard text lookup - copy text from anywhere and select Send To Dictionary from the Notification Bar. Meaning it can now work with apps like iSilo and other apps that don't have send/share function!

A dictionary helper app that sends/share any word to ColorDict or GoldenDict for instant lookup.
Useful when reading in an app that does not support dictionary lookup directly for example, a web browser.
Since this app depends on ColorDict or GoldenDict (offline/online dictionary tools), Internet connection is not required and is very customizable.

REQUIRES and currently supports: ColorDict and GoldenDict

Thanks to Oldřich for letting me know this app works with GoldenDict too.

PERMISSION REQUIRED: Run at Startup - To be able to automatically run on boot when clipboard lookup is enabled.

Recent changes:
1.1.2
Fixed help button (replaced text with icon)
String improvements for clarity
Minor improvements on notification shortcut

1.1.1
Clipboard text lookup - Now accepts copied text from notification shortcut (for apps that don't support share/send)
Holo UI enabled if supported by device

1.0.7:
Minor improvements.
