Send To Dictionary

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
New permission required to start automatically on boot (can be disabled)

1.0.8:
Hide the app when called from send/share.

1.0.7:
Minor improvements.

Love it I love this app but please add features like that of clip to dictionary(if word is selected in PDF or browser or anywhere it'll give option to search meaning), also feature to search from more installed dictionaries like that of quick search widget, last but not least, add floating window feature like icon floating on the screen.

Definitive Dictionary Assistant! 5-Stars for excellent execution. Once you have ColorDict and dictionary files installed, it makes it easy to search for a term: anytime & offline. A must have!

Could be better I like the ideas, but by default, goldendict allow user to look up a word using Send to option. So the first option is rather useless, option 2 seems interesting but how about just copy or select the word, this app activates dictionary automatically? Besides, goldendict does not show up properly
