About this app

Look up Mandarin Chinese words offline using English, Pinyin or Chinese characters (Hanzi) in a clean, intuitive, yet powerful interface.

Please report any bugs or suggestions to us via e-mail. Most emails we respond to within 12 hours (often 1 hour, sometimes 1 minute!).

This is the paid version of our old free version Hanping Lite. For the past 5 years, active development has been for this Pro app only. If you are coming from Lite, then these are the additional features to expect:

AnkiDroid Flashcards support (bulk export as well as auto-export when a Chinese word is starred/tagged) for studying using Anki flashcards (spaced repetition system)
Backup/Restore starred/tagged Chinese words, notes and history
★ Over 7,000 example sentence translations
★ 376 additional Hanzi Stroke Animations (839 total) - single-character headwords auto-animate. For multi-character headwords, use long-press

★ Stars and custom tags now also show in search results and word popups
★ Support for HSK 3.0 (as well as 2.0) and the ability to import predefined lists as custom tags. For example, this gives you more control over what, if any, HSK tags show next to each headword

Great app, have used it for years. The add-ons are very helpful, especially the photo translation function. The handwriting recognition is great if you want to work out characters quickly. The ability to link in with Ankidroid flashcards works really well and allows you to easily and quickly review characters. Really good support from the developer as well if needed.

Excellent. Allows you to focus on the "word" not the interface . Aethetically pleasing, best character draw recognition module. Connects to other web resources , Ankidroid's SR learning. Widgets for tagging words and phrases. Colorful, idiomatic examples of words/phrases usage . Active improvements. Responsive developer. It's powerful because it's fluid and simple. A short, small tag name on the individual widget itself can be a good idea. A very productive Chinese learning tool.

This app AND it's extensions are EASILY THE BEST CHINESE LEARNING RESOURCE YOU CAN USE!!! The ease of use and options that it offers FAR surpass even Pleco. I can't even begin to describe what an incredible resource this Dictionary is. The On Screen Chinese Translator extension where it provides the PINYIN as well as the Camera App Translator. It's just so incredibly good. The best part of the app in my opinion is actually the Export of Flashcards to Anki. I give it 10/5. Amazing work!!!
