Look Up Selected Word In A Dictionary
The ability to select a word and look it up in a dictionary is possible in BB10 using a third-party app and BB10's awesome Share function.

First, install English Dictionary 10 by TPSoft. Then, all you have to do is highlight a word in the text you're reading, and use the Share function to share it with the dictionary. BB10 will switch to the dictionary app, showing you the meaning of the word (or suggested words).

English Dictionary 10 also allows you to look up words in the Thesaurus the same way.

And when you want to go back to the text you were reading, just hit the Back button and you will be brought back to the text you were reading, and not to the homescreen.

There may be other dictionary apps that work the same way. I obviously didn't check them all. :-)

You are a wealth of knowledge Bartron!!
Downloaded and installed! I like that it's resident on my device and not a web-connected app.
