iCED Chinese Dictionary presents a unique way to use a Chinese dictionary. After you've found the entry you were searching for, iCED will continue to search for compound or component entries to complement your search. Component entry dissection allows you to quickly understand the meaning of components in longer words or phrases. For example, if you look up 中华人民共和国, iCED will also look up 中华 and 人民共和国. You can then select the latter to break it up into 人民 and 共和国. When you get to single characters, iCED will look up compound entries starting with that character.

Ratings and Reviews

Love it !!!


useful when you just cant't remember how to write some particulars words. It even blows up the words to allow me (who need reading glasses) to see some complicated words .
Help me with the pronunciation as well !

Great App


I don't think their is a perfect english-Chinese dictionary avaible for the iPhone yet but this app is one of the best I've used so far. I especially love the option to find charcters using radicals.

Great free App!


This is my current "go to" dictionary. Its really the BEST of all the free English/Chinese dictionaries. The developer has done a good job of putting out a very user friendly dictionary.
