    Default Define

    Have you ever tried using the 'define' option?
    I tried it today via TapaTalk and the word would select and I could select define, but no results would show.

    What about you?

    I use it all the time. Have you downloaded a dictionary? When you ask for a "define", did it show a blank page? If so, tap "manage" in the bottom left corner. This should give you dictionary options.

    Does the "define" feature work elsewhere? Like in the Messages app? It works ok on my TapaTalk.

    I think what he is saying, on an app like freedly I can press and hold a word, and it will bring up the option to define, and will.
    On Tapatalk it will just stay blank.

    I see that. It would have to be entered in the text bar and done there. I had not noticed that before.
