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.

I paid for the pro version, but there is still so many basic words and phrases that are unavailable because they want me to purchase an even more expensive upgrade. Like I just want a simple translation of a beginner level phrase.. I just find myself using Google translate more and more often. If you are into in app purchases, pricey add-ons, and costly upgrades, then this app is for you... *Update: Now there is a ridiculous amount of content behind a pay-wall, even after paying for pro version.

I'm sorry you are still upset enough to lower your rating further, even though since your last review I made significant improvements to the Pro version. I do wish you would email me to discuss, but for some reason you choose not to. The Pro version comes with a 30-day refund policy. Kind regards, Mark support@hanping.app

A wonderful app. You can enter English or Chinese and it easily brings up the opposite language. Ability to add words and sentences to AnkiDroid for extra practice. Add-ons available.
