If I highlight a word on my wife's ipad it automatically pops up with the definition at the bottom. Is there a similar way to do that on my nook hd+? I tried and didn't see any options for looking up the definition. Is the only method to open up the dictionary and type in the word or is there a more efficient way?

Thanks for your help!

Hi Andy

Is this using the Kindle app on her iPad? You don't get the popup you describe on the Logos app on the iPad.

In the Logos app on Android if you "long-press" a word, select "Info" from the popup menu and then "Bible Word Study" one of the sections there provides dictionary definitions (this only works when online)

It is because of the way the IOS devices implement the dictionary function.  The Logos app simply uses that, which is quite beneficial.  Unfortunately, the Android OS does not have the same functionality, so Logos has not found a way yet to implement a similar dictionary function.  The information came from Logos in a similar thread I started some time back.

Yes, it's actually in the Logos app. Thanks for the info on the Bible Word Study!

Ah, I see! Thanks for letting me know.
