Not working.

This used to be the best tool I had for writing kanji, but it does not work on the iPad Pro, which is now my primary iOS device.

Excellent Chinese Input Tool

When I use Pages app, I use the built-in Chinese keyboard. But it's Chinese handwriting recognition is super slow. 蒙恬筆 is much faster and has two Chinese input box - one on the left and the other on the right. You begin input from left, once entered you can immediately enter the 2nd letter on the right box. It's really cool. It also automatically enter the letter you wrote without having to pick a possible list of letters. Of course, if what you wrote did not match exactly the software, then you have to pick one from the list.
It's really worth the money.

Meet Expectation and More!

I have been using chinese input device for my PC and writing using the finger on the iPad is a seamless transition.
Great interface to the native iPad email system and now I can send email with chinese characters to my chinese friends. There is predictive phrase recognition at the sidebar if needed to speed up sentence writing. Has both simplified and traditional chinese input. Great if you need chinese input capability on your iPad. Thanks to Penpower.
