Dictionary Bookmarklet in iPhone

Here’s a little known secret: bookmarklets work on your iPhone.

But wait, what are bookmarklets?

Bookmarklets are little pieces of Javascript code that can be saved as ordinary bookmarks in your web browser. They enhance your browsing experience by giving you super-instant access to useful tools and special functionality.

There are billions of them, and below are my favorites. These work wonderfully on a computer, but they’ll add an extra boost of functionality to your iPhone.

To use, just drag the links into Safari’s Bookmarks Bar and synch them to your iPhone via iTunes. Next, bring up the Bookmarks Bar folder on your iPhone and simply tap the bookmarklet you want to use.


1. Find in this page
This really should be built-in to the iPhone: the ability to find a word or phrase on the current page. Results are in bold and highlighted in yellow directly on page. (Now works in both Safari 2 and 3)

Find a word in iPhone Safari

Find a word in iPhone Safari, results

2. Open links in new window
Makes links appear in new windows when you tap on them. Read more here

3. Find similar sites
Gets a list of similar sites via similicio.us

4. Display all images

5. List all links
Takes all links from the current page and lists them in a new window


6. Dictionary

7. Thesaurus

8. Wikipedia

9. Translate to English
Translates the current page to English. (Google automagically detects the language)

Out & About

10. Movie times
Get movie listings and showtimes in your zip code

11. Rotten Tomatoes
No one wants to see a rotten movie. Check the reviews before you buy your tickets


12. YubNub
This is my personal favorite. It let’s you rapidly access over 10,500 search services and tools via shortcut commands. Read more here.

13. IMDB
Look up your favorite movie, celebrity, or tv show

14. AllMusic
Look up your favorite music artist or band

15. Amazon

Thanks goes to Sean for pointing this feature out to me.

Update (July 18, 2007): Looks like a few folks are having problems with the Find in this page bookmarklet. I’ve now replaced it with an alternative version based on a bookmarklet by slayeroffice. This version will also tell you the number of results found. Please let me know how this works for you.

Update (July 19, 2007): The Find in this page bookmarklet now works in both Safari 2 and 3. It looks like it was an issue with URL encoding.

Do you have a favorite bookmarklet? Go ahead, plug it in the comments!

    Can someone write a bookmarklet that functions as a simple text macro?

    i.e. when I’m in a web form, I’d like to enter my address with one bookmarklet click. Or a sig line for forum posts.

    We don’t have copy & paste, so we need this. It should be the simplest bookmarklet imaginable, if you know Javascript.


  • Kim

    gravatarJul 19, 2007
    4:22 am

    More info on that simple text macro bookmarklet to be clear — the text to be entered would be stored within the bookmarklet Javascript itself — you’d need one bookmarklet per text macro.

    Not elegant, but without cut & paste, we need all the help we can get….

  • Kim

    gravatarJul 19, 2007

    Or — maybe the bookmarklet could store a number of text macros, and let you select which one to use by using some kind of menu. Now that would really be cool!

    Hi, is it possible the issue is Windows or more specifically, Safari on Windows for some users?

    I’m using Safari on Windows XP on my iMac* and while I can get all the bookmarklets to work from within the webpage, as soon as I drag them up into the bookmarks bar they no longer work, except for yubnub, which gives me the old %20 in place of spaces thing. Since they don’t work as bookmarks, it makes sense they won’t work as synced bookmarks.

    Oddly, on the iPhone, when I load the page into Safari, the “Find in this page” bookmarklet does not work. The others work fine. Again, this is from within the browser. From within the bookmarks menu on the iPhone, none of them work.

    • Yes, that’s Safari for Windows.. on Windows XP.. on an iMac.. Don’t ask. :)

    Can anyone find a way to get this into the iphone without using itunes and bookmark syncing?

So far I have not been able to get this to work.

    For the YubNub bookmarklet: There’s a YubNub command called ‘fon.’ Say you are browsing the web, and your friend wants to give you a phone number. Call up YubNub, and just type ‘fon [number goes here]’ and hit ok. A link will appear that you just click to call! You could just hit the home button and quickly switch over to the keypad, but I guess this is good if you’re a big YubNubber.

    google’s define: javascript:Qr=prompt(‘Definition%20for’,”);if(Qr)location.href=’http://www.google.com/search?q=define:’+escape(Qr)

    these will jump directly to google’s first result for the given pages, which i find a bit quicker than going through, for example, wikipedia’s search results.

    You can get bookmarks on your phone without syncing. You need to be able to publish a link on a web page. You just add something like http://google.com/ to the beginning in an href. Then Safari will let you bookmark it normally. Then you just edit the bookmark and remove http://google.com/.

    This makes it a link in your email. Click on the link on your phone and bookmark it. Then edit your bookmark and delete http://google.com/ and replace with javascript:

    Works great. Thanks for the idea

    If the HTML survives the post, here’s an iPhone bookmarklet that allows you to take notes on an iPhone or iPod touch. You’ll need to get it served from a web site to get the initial download. After that, press the save changes link and you have a bookmarklet. The page and content are self-replicating, so when you type in new stuff and press save changes, the resulting bookmarklet contains the new text. Thus, you can take notes as bookmarklets – great for meetings!.

    Save Changes

    window.onload=g(); function f() { var e=document.getElementById('x'); document.body.a=escape(e.value.replace(/"/g,'')); var s = ""; s = s + ''+ document.body.innerHTML + ''; document.getElementById('y').href='data:text/html,' + s; e.style.backgroundColor='yellow'; } function g() { var e=document.getElementById('x'); if (document.body.getAttribute('a') != null) e.value= document.body.getAttribute('a'); }

    On the iPhone click on the link. Bookmark the page. Go to bookmarks and tap “edit”. Find the bookmark. Tap on it so you can edit the name and URL. Name it what you want. Delete the beginning of the URL so that it starts with “javascript”.

    Been trying to find and test the Grady Morgan Install Bookmarklet page for a couple of days now, which is difficult given that the http://iphone.gradymorgan.com site is down. It occurred to me to check archive.org, and lo, it turned up some results: http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://iphone.gradymorgan.com

    I think the Wayback Machine scripts cause some issues with the bookmarklet scripts (can’t try it while at work), so I will tweak and upload to my own site in the next day or so and report back with progress.

    Send an email to your iphone with a link in the following format:

    Oddly, on the iPhone, when I load the page into Safari, the –œFind in this page– bookmarklet does not work. The others work fine. Again, this is from within the browser. From within the bookmarks menu on the iPhone, none of them work.

    Have you ever found a long webpage (or maybe too many if you’re on Wikipedia) that you want to read but have no time at the moment, and 5 minutes later when you’re bored on a 45min bus ride and want to read it, but you have no wifi?

    Instapaper (http://www.instapaper.com/ you have to register an account there) lets you download webpages for offline viewing via a nifty bookmarklet. There’s an app (both a free and a paid version) available in the AppStore. It comes with a bookmarklet that

    1) saves the webpage you’re viewing on the online Instapaper facility 2) the app then downloads your saved pages for offline viewing 3) You can also read your saved pages at any internet-enabled computer by accessing Instapaper.com and logging into your account.

    @Shaun: If your iPhone is jailbroken, you can install Clippy Scroll from Cydia and it lets you scroll to the bottom of page in Safari.

    If anyone is interested I’ve mad an updated version of the bookmarklet. The major change is it effectively supports a find next. When you run the bookmarklet a second time on the same page it pre-populates the last search and if you click find again without updating the search term it will move to the next occurrence in the document. This is handy for long documents where it can be difficult to find other search terms.

    There are also some fixes to do with multiple finds. With the old bookmarklet if you did a search for Help and then a search for Helping it wouldn’t be able to find Helping because of the way it splits up the words when it does the first find. This version also unhighlights old searches when a new search is done.

    The block of code for the new bookmarklet is: javascript:void(l=%27%27);d=document.body;j=0;lrid=null;if(d.lastfind!=null&&d.lastfindrid!=null){l=d.lastfind;lrid=d.lastfindrid;}void(s=prompt(%27Find%20text:%27,l));if(s!=null&&s!=%27%27){if(s==l){j=d.lastfindindex+1;}else{b=d.innerHTML;if(lrid!=null){x=new%20RegExp(%27%3Cspan%20name=%22%27+lrid+%27%22%20id=%22%27+lrid+%27%22%20style=%22color:%20rgb\(0,%200,%200\);%20background-color:%20yellow;%20font-weight:%20bold;%22%3E([^%3C])%3C/span%3E%27,%20%27g%27);b=b.replace(x,%20%27$1%27);}d.lastfind=s;s=%27(%27+s+%27)%27;x=new%20RegExp(s,%27gi%27);rn=Math.floor(Math.random()100);rid=%27z%27+rn;d.lastfindrid=rid;b=b.replace(x,%27%3Cspan%20name=%22%27+rid+%27%22%20id=%22%27+rid+%27%22%20style=%22color:%20rgb(0,%200,%200);%20background-color:%20yellow;%20font-weight:%20bold;%22%3E$1%3C/span%3E%27);void(d.innerHTML=b);alert(%27Found%20%27+document.getElementsByName(rid).length+%27%20matches.%27);}d.lastfindindex=j;window.scrollTo(0,document.getElementsByName(rid)[j%document.getElementsByName(rid).length].offsetTop);}

    3.1 Update Seems to have broken consistent copy and paste functionality with bookmarklet input boxes. I have several bookmarklets on my iphone in Safari that pop up a javascript input box allowing me to input data. I used to be able to paste data into the input box when it popped up everytime and then hit ok, and it would run the script to calculate the url based on the data to view the next page. However, since the 3.1 update when I click into the box, the copy and paste function pops up 1 time after a phone reset and then will not pop up anymore to paste data into the input box and I am not sure why. Can anyone else confirm that behavior? The problem seems to manifest itself on the bookmarklets on this page. Just copy something to your iphone clipboard, run a bookmarklet and try to paste. The paste will come up the first time and then click ok and try to run the bookmarklet again or another bookmarklet and you will no longer be able to get the copy or paste options to come up in the javascript input box that pops up.

    A web browser called iNetDual is released in AppStore. It has nice features for bookmarklets such as bookmarking the bookmarklets directly, a simple bookmarklet editor, automatic bookmarklets, and a bookmark bar where you can put your favorite links and bookmarklets. It would be very nice if you would download iNetDual and check the features.

    I really and I must share this on this blog. I recent bought 2 iphones and started using them after staring at it for 3 weeks trying to figure out how and where to click or tap. Finally, i managed to get it working then I realised that the battery runs out very fast within half a day. I live in my briefcase, therefore this is not good. I stop by the mall, bought the external portable charger that I can put into my bag and brought it home to charge for 2 hrs it says. After charging, I inserted the external charger into my 3GS iphone. Suddenly, pop the sound came. I quickly immediately pull out the charger and there was a very strong burning smell coming from the charger and my iphone. Guys out there, beware when using your hp not necessary only iphone. Never ever buy a fake or non compatible charger. They really can burst. Thank god this is just a “POP” not “BOOM”

    If I may say something:

    The find in page plugin is – sorry for bing that harsh – crap. The very first thing I did was to open it and leave it blank. After this I did it again 3 times:

    1. The JS highlighted every string ‘null’ on the page (js construction fail.)

    2. Firefox died.

    3. The repsone of js was the unevaluated html of the page.

    Great work.

    To install without safari or iTunes:

    Mail the js to yourself. Open mail on your iPhone. Copy all js. Open mobile safari. Type http:// on adress bar and paste js as rest. Will give an error but save it to bookmarks. Edit the bookmark, erase the http:// part. Save.

    For anyone with an iPhone having trouble with the Find bookmarklet, you can do it this way without having to sync with your computer. First, copy the JavaScript below. Then just go to any website and save it as a Bookmark. Then go to your Bookmarks and find the Bookmark that you just saved and change it’s name to Find. Then in the box below the name click the x to delete the web address. After you’ve deleted the address just paste in the javascript that you copied from below. Then save it. I moved my Find to the top of my Bookmarks for easy access. This should work for any JavaScript Bookmarklet that you should come across. Good luck!

    I’m sorry but something is wrong with posting to this website. The JavaScript I just posted is not complete in my last post. I don’t know what this website’s problem is but it is not allowing the correct script to be posted. The JavaScript I tried to include in my last post had many lines of code that I copied from my own, working, ‘Find’ Bookmarklet. What ended up in my post is not a workable code. Very strange that this site is doing this.
