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.

Can't satisfy the real need! Your idea is brilliant! But your app still can't deliver it. I believe that the people who need this app is someone that want to learn English in the most fast and comfortable way. We just need select the word and colordict appear instantly (no need to tap copy if possible). And we also need an option to enable and disable that function for other using purpose. We should make it floating like apple virtual home button so that when we tap it the search box will appear for fast searching. :) Have a good day :D
