You are looking for a way to add your favorite Dictionary data to Moon+ Reader so that you don’t have to exit the application every time you come across a strange, obscure word, or when you want to look up something on Wikipedia. If you are a new user, you should probably read why Moon+ Reader is the best e-book reader for Android here.

Adding your favortite Dictionary Data to Moon+ Reader can be a bit tricky if you are not used to these sort of things. Moon+ supports a lot of different dictionaries. You get to add any of the following universal dictionary applications like, ColorDict, GoldenDict, Fora, ABBYY Lingvo. However, for this tutorial i am going to take ColorDict, which is my favorite dictionary app for Moon+ Reader or any third-party integration.

Steps to add ColorDict Dictionary to Moon+ Reader.

1. Install the ColorDict application from Google Play. The developers who created Moon+ are the same people who created other cool Android applications like Note, ColorFlashLight Free, etc.

2. Now that you have installed the application, you need to install your favorite Dictionary Databases. You can find compatible Dictionary Databases on Google Play.I highly recommend “Wikipedia”,”English Thesaurus”, and “English Wordnet.” I myself found it really hard to find these thesaurus files on Google Play and the Internet. The thing is some of them can still be found on Google Play, but you wouldn’t know if they are the right ones.

I currently have 5 dictionary Databases on my Kindle Fire 2 and I have uploaded them here. Please download these files on or your computer and move them to your SD-Card or simply download the file directly on your mobile.

3. Make sure the unzipped files are in your SD card. Open each and every dictionary apk file with your favorite file manager. The dictionary data of the respective thesaurus will be extracted in a folder in your SD Card. Once the various dictionary data are extracted. Each of the Dictionaries will prompt to uninstall from the device, since they are not needed anymore. Now all the data needed by ColorDict is in your SD Card. The next step is to import all them to ColorDict.

4. Open the ColorDict application. The application will start indexing the data which we just extracted in step 3. If the indexing doesn’t start on its own, go to “Dicts” tab in the application, press the menu and press “reindex.

5. You will be able to see all the various dictionaries you imported. You can also move the dictionaries up or down in the list based on your preference.

6. Open Moon+ Reader and open a book. Long press on any word and choose “Dict.” If you did all the above 5 steps correctly you will be able to see the dictionary function working.
