It would be very nice to be able to tap and hold on a word and have the option to do a dictionary lookup (in the order of preferred dictionaries/lexicons from L4). Currently the only options when tapping and holding are Bible Search and Bible Word Study Report.

I would like to create a third option that would generate a report similar to the L4 information window when I hover over a word. 

I make regular use of a workaround, where I will run a Bible Word Study on a word that I don't know the definition of, and as long as the word isn't found in the Bible, the only output from the Word Study report is the definition. The formatting is not optimal as the entire definition is often not shown and only one entry is displayed.

Yes, I too use the dictionary lookup all the time in L4.  I miss it a lot when using the iPhone App.

YES!!!  That would be immensely helpful!  I hope it is not too difficult to program?

And it wouldn't help making an English dictionary available too.  The Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary, Tenth Edition is supposed to be one of the 3000 books to be available on the iPhone as posted by Dan 3 months ago, but somehow it hadn't made it into the iPhone yet.   Stick out tongue
