I live and work in North Central China and I've relied on Hanping Chinese to help me through some rough spots. My Chinese colleagues like it too. UPDATE 11/2016:. Four years later and it keeps getting better and I'm still loving Hanging Chinese Dictionary and the constant new ideas they create with product improvement.
Keeps getting better Don't even hesitate, just hit the purchase button already. This app is amazing. Truly invaluable to any Chinese learner, and is great as a study aid, helps out when messaging friends in Chinese and I can't quite remember what certain characters are, and as a general lookup tool. Pretty sure that it couldn't get any better than this :) (with every update it does get beter than this haha)
5 stars Excellent app, ever so committed developer. New version even better than before without becoming more complicated. 贊！
Animation Stroke Bug Animated Strokes don't work correctly. The animation is too fast to be useful. I tried the settings couldn't work. I tried installing another app that animate character strokes called StrokePad that app works correctly on the same device.
Best Chinese Dictionary I have been using this dictionary daily for over 4 years and it's been worth every dollar I have spent. I paid for the pro dictionary and the extra dlc dictionaries and content, and all are well worth the investment because of the ease of use and constant updating from the developer. It's a must have for living in China as a foreigner and studying Chinese. Even my Chinese friends say this is a great dictionary. The other products from the developer like the onscreen popup and camera are great tools too.
I've used this for 4 years on 3 phones, it's one of the best apps I own.
