I make constant use of the built in dictionary.I am reading quite a long book (The Shadow of the Wind)' and now that I am on page 270 out of aprox. 600, everytime I double tap a word to access its definition, it takes around 5 seconds for the dictionary book to show up. The weird thing is that it doesnt happen when I perform the same action on the first 100 pages of the book, for example - it is really way snappier then.Is it a bug or can I do something about it?
I've noticed that the dictionary in iBooks is not working, and this problem persists from Beta 1. Is there any specific reason why it has not been addressed yet, except for the fact that this is only a beta?
I want to know if the book reader feature in iPad has a dictionary. In other words, can I underline a word in a book and have it bring up its definition. If yes, can you provide a link to an official description that describes this feature? Also, if yes, is it included or an app?I've been doing a lot of browsing and have only found one iffy claim that it has a dict. The absence of touting this feature makes me wonder.Ideally I'd like to hear from someone that has used both a Kindle and the iPad's reader dictionary feature.
I've noticed when typing an email when a word is underlined in red you can tap on it and then a "replace" button appears that offers the correct spelling. However when reading email only the option to copy appears. Yet in Pages and iBooks you can tap a word and get the dictionary. Is Dictonary only available in certain apps at certain times?
I'm trying to learn Spanish and one activity I like doing on my PC is reading the web and using a pop up dictionary to translate new words - if I don't know a word I double click it and I get a small pop up translation.
Is this possible on ipad? I love the touch web browser it's amazing =).
My IPad 2 keeps autocorrecting the spelling of my name incorrectly and a few times I have missed it and created all sorts of confusion (what it is being changed to is nowhere near my real name). Does any know how I can either add my correct name spelling to the dictionary so I doesn't try to auto correct, or to address this another way as it's really frustrating.
On my mac there is a feature where if I was reading something and didn't know a word then I would right click on it and there will be a dictionary option.Just wondering if the Ipad has the same feature somehow for it's web browser or iBooks or the NYC or magazine apps?
When I try to type my name in most documents, it is auto corrected to "Mike Ethan" this is not close to my name and it is annoying to have to remove the autocorrection.. I found the instructions for removing a word from the dictionary but the instructions are incorrect as there is no field in the general page of Setting/keyboard corresponding to "modify dictionary".
I am picking up French, so I've downloaded some French books in iBooks to hone my reading skill (and to pick up some vocab).iBooks has dictionary lookup function, however, this doesn't seen to work for French words (duh!)Does anyone know a way to add French dictionary to iPad so that I can look up French words in iBooks?btw, I've tried setting the iPad in French keyboard and France region mode.
I'm just wondering if there is a dictionary included with the ipad similar to, or identical to the one that comes standard on macs? I'm trying to decide wether it is something(ipad) that I may want rather than an ipod touch.

I saw that selecting a word in a ibook, you can look up the dictionary for that word; is it possible to get to do the same for a word on a webpage? (I saw that, normally, selecting a word on a webpage you get only the "copy" function)
One disappointment for iPad has been that I am unable to find how the dictionary works, or if there is even a dictionary. On my Kindle, it wa as easy as putting the curser over any unfamiliar word. Is any such similar feature available for iBooks on iPad ?( I purchased The New Oxford american Dictionary on Amazon.com)
However, the user guide states that to see a definition, just tap the word. I had tapped, double tapped, tapped and held, etc, but no definition pops up in any word I have tried. This is the same in email, reading a Kindle book, reading an iBook book.
Is it possible to access the built-in dictionary on the iPad directly, without being in an app? When I want to look up a word, the only way I can figure out how to do it is start a draft email, type the word, then select and define.áSurely there is an easier way ...
I am writing this mail regarding to use of integrated dicitionary coming with ios 5 iná the app of ''pdf expert''.i have an ipad 2 with ios 5.1 (9B176) and bought app '' pdf expert'' to study my documents..when i need to look up a definition of a word by the use integrated dictionary on this applicaiton; i press the word and then a tab menu appears above the word with topics as ''note'', ''highlight'', '' underline'',''strikeout '', ''dictionary'' and ''copy''. hopefully i press dictionary but, always get the answer as ''no definition found''. this happens for all words.
purchased an ipad and want to use it in the same way as my ipod touch with my turkish dictionary from Langenscheid. But to use it I must be able to enter the special turkish characters. Is there a way as in the touch to enhance the existing apple kayboard with the special characters, so when you hold e.g. the "s" key, you get also the "┼č" for example?
do not know where to introduce the suggestions for improvement in the forum, but I think it would be very useful to implement the dictionary, which is now available in iBooks, safari and other Apps that they need.I think it's a very necessary feature when you surf the Internet and that brings Mac OS X built.
After reading Matthew's thread about the spacebar on the keyboard bugging him, it had dawned on me that there was no way to add custom words to the iPad's dictionary or set certain words to be replaced with other words, for example the word "ipad" will usually be auto corrected by the keyboard dictionary and changed to "iPad", however, if you type "ipads", the word is not auto corrected and the letter "p" in the word does not get capitalized nor is an apostrophe added into the word.
So, is there a hack that allows you to add custom words to the auto-correction dictionary or is there a hack that allows you to add certain words to be replaced by other words?
If such a hack does not exist, this hack could be made and put into Cydia by a dev and I would gladly pay for it (I hope a dev is reading this *wink*).
I have been googling like mad to find out how to change the default dictionary on my kindle for ipad app from English to French. I actually bought the Kindle French dictionary, but now find it entirely useless as I cannot use it in text reading mode!
Is there any way that I can change the default dictionary in the Kindle for iPad to the French dictionary? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
