I am learning Chinese Mandarin, I find the app is simple to understand meaning for words. One thing I would like to see is when I try to copy a word, it also copy the characters. For example: it will put the pinyin mixed together with the characters. That is frustrating!! Or perhaps there is a way to separate the two when I am copying??

Thank you for your review. The Copy button only copies the Chinese characters. It sounds like you are using the Share button instead?

This app is just what I was looking for. I'm perfectly happy using the 注音符號 keyboard that's built in to Android, but what about the times when I don't know the pronunciation of the character? Simple: I use the Hanping Chinese Dictionary pad to draw the character and, voila, I have the character's pronunciation and definition. I also really appreciate that this app lets me work in the traditional characters, rather than the simplified Orwellian Newspeak characters.
