So easy to use, tone highlights, stroke, English, and pinyin input. Really easy to browse through similar vocab. I haven't found anything better.

Great to learn chinese, can draw a character to know what it means. Works like a charm.

Good stuff, can't wait to have the sound for some tricky words. Also, would be awesome to have the ability to categorize our starred item.

The best Chinese app. Functionality is great. I could copy sentences to clipboard, open hanping and get all the word info in sequence. Fantastic!

Best program with character recognition and ability to create multiple custom starred lists and pronounces word.

If it weren't for this application, I could not have studied Chinese at Middlebury College this past summer.

No person has ever appreciated an app more than I have this one. Worth it at ten times the price!

Very very good indeed!! At last I have found an app which recognizes my attempts at writing Hanzi!
