I love the iOS app but one feature I would really like to see would be the ability to highlight a word or phrase in a text and then search for it with a single button, just as one can in the desktop version. At the moment one has to copy a word from the instant details box and then paste it into the search bar, which is a bit fiddly. Even if one could search directly by touching something in the instant details box that would make things a bit easier.

Best wishes

Chris

It's implemented in 1.4, but could you add option to long-tap any word in the popup window and choose module for amplification? For example, I long-tap in Gal 4:4 on "time", get popup window which explains me that it's Greek word chronos. Now, I'd like to lookup χρόνος in NIDNTT. Tapping on Keynumber button opens Greek Keys. Maybe I'm ignorant here, but I don't see straight path to NIDNTT. Maybe there could be third button which shows top Greek Tool?

You can long tap on chronos in Greek keys and amplify to the entry in the first Greek tool it finds.

…and from there touch the module name to switch the search text to a different tool.

But, this requires a few extra steps. We're planning to support amplify to a specific resource, but might not be in the next release.
