Easy to use and the characters are so clear. a great free version. i am very interested in the pro version, but i am confused as to whether it can install to SD card or not. If not, how much space does it take? the audio files will take up a lot i would think? Fine work though+++

Hands down the best. I use it all the time to translate n learn Chinese from comic books n in class. It's fast n accurate.

Very good, especially considering its free. Only fault I can make would be they lack of a way to turn off instant searching as you type. Starting a new search as you type each letter can be a drag on the phone. An option to turn it off, or set it on say a 1- or 2-second delay would be useful. Content very good though.

I cannot praise this app enough. I've been in Taiwan nearly 3 years now, tried many translation programs and utilities and without question this one simple phone app has them all beat. I can use BoMoPoFo, Pinyin, or English to get where I want, quickly and smoothly. The only drawback, and this is a local matter, is that Taiwan's Android Network will not allow me to BUY the pro version (or any paid-for app) --- how dumb is that? I would be on that in a heart beat if I were able to.

The best one available. I wish it offered a "common phrases" in addition to the idioms to aid sentence construction.

its not a translator and it works perfectly fine when used as a dictionary

this dictionary is NOT BILINGUAL!!!! its a zh-en dict with a function to look up words in translated chinese entries. even as such its quite poor: no example sentences, minimal number of entries, inaccurate...

A good dictonary, user friendly but if can provideo with voice pronouncation for all wording, then will be a perfect dictonary.
