XDictionary does the same thing, but in a far less intrusive and much cleaner way.

Hi,

mine works in every application.
eg : you can open chrome,adobe reader,Office applications,Chat apps,etc
just open the application->click settings icon which enables the floating Icon->Open any other application which supports copying text (all app supports that) - > Copy the word you need to know about- > click on the floating icon and you will get the meaning.

Also XDictionary needs to root the device and install Xposed Module.But Mine DO NOT require ROOT.
