Want to know How to Access iOS 5 Hidden Dictionary

iOS 5 have a great built-in dictionary that is easily accessible from Safari and other apps. Now if you find a word that you need to know what is the meaning you can easily launch the hidden dictionary of iOS 5.  Instead of downloading or launching a separate dictionary app, you can quickly access definitions directly from iOS.

IMG_0965  IMG_0966

Here’s to do it

  1. Select the word you want to define by double clicking it.
  2. Choose the define option.
  3. The built-in dictionary will do the rest, the information you will see in the dictionary is more than enough to impress you.

Note: This only works in apps where you can select the word by itself, and of course not if the word is in an image file.

Found this nice tip at Mactrast
