Nice app

The new version seems to load faster than the old one, but at the expense of a cheesy UI and not being able to scroll through all forms at once. Oh well, can't have it all I guess. Content is still outstanding, so five stars still.

Those reviewers wanting explanations of certain terms ought to do the reading themselves before complaining about the app. 'Signific' is not exactly an obscure, specialized term. It's pretty basic, something anyone learning about etymology should already be familiar with.

Good app for study Chinese character.

First, thank you for you years work. I am a Chinese but I would rather writing in English so that more English speaking people can see it.
It is really a awesome app for learning and understanding Chinese characters. You can find the changes and simplifying of Chinese characters with time flow. If you are interested in Chinese culture, this app will help you a lot to understand the structure, relation and meaning of Chinese characters

If this App had inbuilt images...

100,000 characters... If each one had a sum of 10kb in images, 10kb x 100,000 = at least 1Gb required. Well done, I hope you get enough funding to keep the website running, it is a precious work, congratulations.
