Ratings and Reviews

Not correct Pinyin


This App has lots of useful phrases. And it's free which is very generous of the creators. But I have to give it 1-star because it does NOT use the correct, standard and official Chinese romanization of Mandarin - Pinyin. I am an English speaker trying to learn Mandarin and part of that is learning Pinyin (which all other language tools use) - and which this app doesn't help with. Even if the creators do not like Pinyin - they could still have it as an option. So I'm really sorry to give this 1-star, but with this issue the app is worthless to me.



Very good app, considering it's FREE! Has all the basics you need, it's not a whole dictionary but will diff help you in sticky situations.
It does however need a button that says do you speak English as I find this is the most common thing I ask :(


Koonara wines

Couldn't find a way to use this once. No audio on most words you need. If your hoping to use it for travel forget it. Even lingopal was more help. I'm hardly going to buy the full version when the free one was less than helpful.
