Definitely agree. Google should have it by now.

Yes, app has definitely been abandoned. Tragic.

Yep, consider the app abandoned. I've made an edit. I've dug around for weeks, and, unfortunately, been unable to come up with a method to make this work on custom UIs or even slightly modified ROMs.

The app works reasonably fine on standard AOSP; perhaps there's a more unified, unmodified codebase in Lollipop, which I will dig into when and if Xposed is ported.

That said, the app is open source - feel free to dig around and see if you can spot anything. I'm certainly no genius, and I'm sure there's someone more experienced than me who may want to contribute a patch for their ROM.

Cheers, thank you for your time, and sorry for the uncertainty about the whole thing.

A Working Alternative for All Android Versions
Just download and install this and copy the text like normal. 3 icons will appear and just click on Aa and you will be given the definitions in a nice overlay. This was on the official app store and taken down for some unknown reason.

You could consider just monitoring the clipboard like mime-o does. Officially it is not hosted anywhere that is easily accessible on Android.

Why don't you add the "define" button to the action bar with the copy,cut,paste options ?
See my app Native Clip Board (thread) (github)
currently it could make the action bar crowded if someone uses both apps but I'm looking into fixing that.
