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.

This is a great app. The dictionary is comprehensive and easy to use. The most useful feature is the Hanzi stroke animation. Second most useful feature is the native pronunciation. This is the best Chinese/Mandarin/Hanzi app I've come across. I paid for the pro version and add-ons. Worth every penny.

Long term user of the app, bought all addons, super useful. 5 stars. -However the latest update is visually not helpfull. Please let me switch to list style for recent searches as before. -Font size way to big when pasting text -Clunky feeling now. Please let me go back to old behaviour, I'll even pay extra money if you let me go back.
