DianHua Dictionary is a Chinese English dictionary for the iPhone and iPod touch. Using data from the CC-CEDICT project, DianHua Dictionary provides search support for English, Mandarin Pinyin (with or without tones), Traditional Characters, Simplified Characters, and mixed searches consisting of any combination of the above.
Other features of DianHua Dictionary include:
- Search History: All search terms entered into the Search field are stored in your Search History. Touch any term in the list to see the results.
- Bookmarks: Arrange all of the words you are studying into a nested hierarchy of Folders.
- Writing Practice: Under the Study tab, you can practice typing or writing characters using any of the iPhone's Simplified or Traditional keyboards, including the character drawing keyboards. Choose whether you want to see Pinyin and/or English for the prompt and draw or type the appropriate Chinese character into the box provided.
- Flashcards: Select any combination of Traditional, Simplified, English, and Pinyin for the Front and Back of the cards and grade your confidence in your answer. If you choose to use the Difficulty sorting algorithm, more difficult words will be shown more often than words you tend to answer correctly.
- Numbers: Convert numeric entries to Simplified and/or Traditional variants including their Banking equivalents. Touch the audio icon to hear arbitrary numbers spoken.
- DianHuaDictionary.com: Search from your browser, sync between multiple devices, export, and import data.

This app has taken my learning of Chinese to a whole new level. I have been using it in conjunction with Google Translate for a free audio workaround, but I have been so happy with the free Dian Hua app I just gladly paid for the full audio version. Thank you for making and supporting such a fantastic tool!
Fast, simple, and now modern!
This is my go to Chinese dictionary and has been for years. Search is always good no matter which input, and references are clear. Offline functionality is key, means it works while traveling.
New update gives it iOS 7 and 8 compatibility plus support for both iPhone 5 and 6 screen sizes. Very glad to see it updated, was starting to think I'd need another app, but didn't want to switch, too used to DianHua. Thanks for the hard work!
