About this app

Research Centre for Humanities Computing, CUHK has developed a well-known web application "Chinese Character Database" ( Which stores a huge and complete database of phonological data of over 13k chinese characters.

It is a useful and nice website, however we may encounter some difficulties on using this web application on our mobile devices.

So I wrote this little application, which is just provide a simple interface to access this web application.

You can also hear the cantonese pronunciation with this application.

The last version was fine. After I updated the app, I can't see the Chinese character I just typed. It is actually there because if I tried to select it in the box fir searching, I can see it being high-lighted. Searching function works fine but on the result page, I can't see the buttons for different init/tone. When I tapp the box where the button is supposed to be, again, it works. So, I believe there's some problems displaying the character in the search box and the buttons.

中文大學又把第三方訪問給擋掉了,最新版本 (1.48+) 應可解決 看不字查詢字或多音的問題,要等有空再看看,好像在舊版 Android 系統上版型顏色都跟新版系統不同 明明他們一直都不弄 android / iOS app 現在還擋其他人使用,唉

The app is good but the pronunciation has not been working for many months after an update. The sound appears to be crackling and screaming at you. Please fix. Thanks in advance.

The old version is better. Now the new one doesn't show the chinese characters in the SAME INIT & FIN, SAME FIN & TONE for reference. That is why I gave a 2-star rating to this upgraded version. Developerd please put back those functions in the app.
