Hope this is appropriate here. I've got a Kindle to use at home and have downloaded K4PC to read while on lunch at work.
Right now my K4PC is showing that it's version 1.2.1 version. On Amazon's K4PC page, it shows that I can use a dictionary to look up definitions. I've tried sending my Oxford American Dictionary to my app, but keep getting the error message "We were unable to download The Oxford American Dictionary. Please try again later."
I guess what I want to know is if I have the latest version/update. If not, how do I update it? If so, do I keep trying to download the dictionary? It makes sense that I need it to look up a word. Right now, when I highlight a word, I don't even see an option to look it up. It's not grayed out, it's just not there.

I am using version 1.3.0. The Oxford American was automatically downloaded by K4PC, but it took a few minutes to kick in.
I think all you need to do is go to the K4PC page and click download now.

I think maybe you need to download again, jcarson. I was using version 1.2.0 and had the option selected for K4PC to update automatically when new versions come out, but it hadn't updated, so I just downloaded it again from http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.htm...cId=1000426311 and when I installed that, turned out to be version 1.3.0 with dictionary lookup. It appears not to be optional which dictionary to use, though I might be wrong there, but I can't find any option to replace the supplied dictionary with an alternative (comes with the New Oxford American Dictionary - first time you highlight a word inside a book after installing the new version, it downloads the dictionary from somewhere on Amazon's servers).
Hope that helps.
