    I tried to cram it all in the subject line. I'm looking for an app that would allow me to tap, or double tap, or something similar on a word while in message/mail/safari/twitter etc, to get a definition, similar to how the three finger double tap works in OS. Does this application exist? I'm jailbroken on a 4S running 5.1

    I have Action Menu and the Plus pack installed and it has the Define function.

    Works really really well.

    If you're on iOS5, it's already a built-in feature. Double tap or select the word you want and when the Cut/Copy/Paste menu comes up, there should also be a Define option (you may have to tap the > to see it).

    Thank you! I will check out those apps you listed doubletap. And wow Lazy Flip I did not realize that was a function native to IOS5. Haven't had my 4S for long. Thank you for including a screen shot. I did have to tap the arrow to see it.
