Within just a couple of seconds of launching this Chinese OCR app, and without even touching the screen, you can be viewing word-by-word definitions of a complete line of Chinese text. The auto-snapshot feature means you won't have to keep awkwardly trying to position your camera.
* Works with both our Mandarin (Hanping Chinese Dictionary, free & paid apps) and Cantonese (Hanping Cantonese Dictionary, paid app only) dictionary apps
* Designed for reading regular Chinese text (like in a book). It is not intended for reading things like shop signs, food labels or other images using stylized text, so please bear this in mind before purchasing.
* Works much better on text printed on paper than on text on computer screens. However, works really well on screenshots
* Designed for students learning Mandarin Chinese. Some Cantonese characters may not be recognized
* Having trouble focusing the camera? Try holding it further away from the text
* Details on how to get this paid app (living in China?): http://goo.gl/YGonR

There are two View modes:
1. Live View
The screen shows the live camera preview and the app continuously scans it for Chinese. As words are recognized, the corresponding dictionary entries are displayed.
Live View has two sub-modes:
a) Auto: the camera is continuously refocused and a snapshot is automatically taken as soon as the characters are recognized.
b) Manual: you control when to focus and whether to use flash (if your device supports it). You also choose when to snapshot the preview image.
2. Image View
Works with still images which are either snapshots of the camera preview or existing images (e.g. photos) you already have on your Android device.
Please use the forum (see below) to report any bugs or suggestions.

Learn Chinese with Bruce, welcome to Travel in Chinese.
In 2009, as a destination expert of TripAdvisor.com, Bruce Shaw(Nick name:Qingdao_aborigines) made videos for travellers who can't speak Chinese at all. You also could access those videos at http://www.youtube.com/swfcom. Even more, Bruce Shaw created http://www.abuchinese.com to help people who want to learn Chinese.
This is the PRO edition of Travel in Chinese. It is very easy to use, launch the app, click on the screen; you could hear the Bruce's voice with highlight displaying. Hope that could help you when you in China! You could access our facebook page, twitter us, and watch the our videos on Youtube via the icon in the APP. I will continue to publish new version, achieve new requirements. Just try it.
Any feedback please have me know. Also I could answer your questions on Learning Chinese or your destinations of China. You even can make your customized APP!!!
