Highlighting phrases on mobile

I am a new user and for the life of me I can’t figure out how to highlight a phrase on the iPhone app. Whenever I try it either swipes to the left or right screen. Tapping just tries to lingq the individual words. It is so intuitive on the desktop - just click and drag - am I missing something on the mobile version?

Using a stylus I select the first word of the phrase I want to highlight and then I swipe to the end of the phrase.

To highlight a phrase on the iOS app, just long press on any word and highlight option will appear.

Ah thanks. I was not pressing long enough.
