EncycloClip for iPad and iPhone for iOS

By Flash Sheridan Free

Developer's Description

EncycloClip for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch is a faceless app which searches the online version of the Encyclopdia Britannica for the contents of your clipboard. To use it, select and copy some text (for instance in an eBook, web page, or your own notes); then launch EncycloClip from your home screen.

It is possible to do this manually from Safari by visiting the i.eb.com website, but it sometimes presents a Search dialog which generally does not allow pasting text. EncycloClip reduces the minimum tap count for a lookup to two from eight (or six if you have added i.eb.com to your Home Screen), and eliminates an unnecessary web request. EncycloClip is is neither endorsed by nor affiliated with Encyclopdia Britannica; it merely facilitates access to their web site. Encyclopdia Britannica has also licensed an offline version of their Concise Encyclopdia, but that has fewer and shorter articles.
