Now what about opening that menu by default then. Thus the user needs one tap less. Or get the most used features separate icons, like Facebook got (which I don't use, so that's a waste of space in my case). What about switching between "dictionary/definition" and "translate" functionality? An icon next to the arrow (leading to the "edit" page) in the top/left would be cool. Or do I still need to close either, get back to the text, mark the word again, tap again to open the menu and select the other functionality? Or is it now possible to switch between them, keeping the marked word in the "clipboard"? I posted it in the request feature forum already, but I'd like to know if this was implemented? I noticed that they tend to give different results, sometimes complementing each other (f.e. one lacks a word the other got in its database). And is it possible to switch the marking to an adjacent word when I missed the right one with the first tap? Or do I need to tap X first and try again?
