Find an App

Fist of all, Android's app ecosystem offers you numerous dictionary apps, but in this case it's not the dictionary you want, but the pop-up dictionary which will offer you the meanings within the page. Thus there are several apps, but Popup Dictionary and WordLookup are two best ones. Take any one of these.

Downloading the App

Lets say you want WordLookup app to be installed in the device. Now Go ahead to the Google Play Store and download the app.

In-App Settings

Once you download the app, tap the auto-created app widget, which will lead you to settings, where you can set a Pop-up display length, number of definitions shown and also toggle text-to-speech. Almost all these functions are self-explanatory.


Unlike most of the dictionary apps where you have to come outside your reading page, copy the new word, and open the dictionary app separately and paste it, you don't have to do this with the new app. All you need to do is highlight the new word. Go to the share button at the top and tap WordLookup. The meaning will appear at the bottom of the display for the pre-set duration.

Usage and benefits of the App

The app comes with a number of functions, the best one is the option which will allow you to choose the number of definitions you need. You can demand any number of definitions. Also the duration of the pop-up dictionary on the screen can be controlled to any length of time. You can make it read the definition as well. Compared to all the other dictionaries, it is pretty cool and user friendly as well.
