I do wish iPad OS had a dictionary and thesaurus app like Mac OS has. I am probably going to grudgingly give money to Oxford. Sometimes I want to look up something that isn’t in an app I’m running on the device I’m using. That service doesn’t account for every use case for a curious person.

@hjalm I don't own an iPad, but on iOS I can use the built-in search to look up words. In Settings → General → Dictionary, I see the New Oxford American Dictionary, Oxford American Writer's Thesaurus, and more. Is that not a thing on iPadOS?

@sod I have been unable to locate matching settings in iPad OS.

@sod Correction. I was able to locate the settings. Still not an app I can launch when I see something in print or hear something in conversation. So, yes, I can launch Notepad, type a word, select it, and look it up…

@hjalm You should be able to use the built-in search, I think.

@sod It’s an excellent point and I haven’t used this feature enough. You are so right. I wasn’t thinking in those terms.
