If you're studying Mandarin Chinese, this is the pinyin chart for you. It's the only pinyin chart for the iPad to make full use of zooming and panning controls to make pinyin study easy and enjoyable. The interface is simple, clean, and ad-free. Every pinyin syllable has audio associated, and toggling between the four different tones of Mandarin Chinese is easy.
More advanced students of Chinese will enjoy the pinyin chart's support for alternate phonetic representations of Mandarin Chinese. The app comes with support for the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) for free, but other romanization systems like Wade-Giles, as well as alternate representations like zhuyin (used in Taiwan) are available by in-app purchase.

What's New in Version 2.1.1
Can't save preferences
Bought this app for a reference to non-Pinyin AND pinyin transcription, but to get GR I have to re-enter that choice every single time I open the app. It never remembers. Irritating. Is there a better app out there for this? I paid for the add-ons, but I have to repeat my preferences every time. Wish it worked better.
Sounds still doesn't work on iPhone 6 Plus
This new update that reportedly 'fixes bugs' doesn't fix the sound problem for the iPhone 6 Plus 64gb running iOS 8.1.3. There is no sound when you select a pinyin to play! John and AllSet, this problem will cause you guys to lose customers in China! Please fix this asap!
This is a wonderful app! A must have for anyone who wants to be understood by Chinese listeners. I was really happy to find it.
I use it on my iPad.
