Simply amazing 這個東西太棒了!


I downloaded this app because I hated pleco. I didn't find it as user friendly as my friends did, perhaps I used it wrong. This app, however, has almost never failed me (there are phrases here and there that it doesn't pick up, but that's happened like twice in the year I've used it). You can search with pinyin, English, or character (simplified or traditional) and the app will give you multiple results. It even works as a pretty decent translator, because the person you're showing the results to will look at the list and realize what you're talking about based on context. What I love most about this app, though, is the fact that it displays both traditional and simplified so I can see both. I started learning mandarin using simplified characters, (so the app defaulted to simplified with traditional in parentheses) but this summer I decided to start using traditional. Within less than a day the app automatically switched its settings, giving traditional the priority. It still shows simplified in parentheses which is helpful to me because I can make sure I've found the right character based on my knowledge of simplified. Stop reading this and download the app!



It translate good but i would like it to have a turning ability. I find it easier to view things when device is longer horizontally than vertically.
