Review from Andre Kuah
Highly customizable dictionary. (Hint: At the outset, relocate the "settings" on the sidebar to the top just below the "dictionary"). This facilitates seeing the effect of any changes made. Many people do not realize that the 5th "silent" tone continues/"glides" from the pitch level where the previous syllable ends. It should not sound like 1st tone. I particularly like the floating screen reader function to find the meaning of any unfamiliar words on the web. Whole article can be copied onto the reader and words/phrases checked. Includes additional free dictionaries on Chinese tea/medical/Buddhist terms. Basic Cantonese/French/German dictionaries, also, come free. Those who wish to dive straightaway into strictly Chinese dictionary may download free add-ons from Taiwan MOE which differentiates Taiwan/China pronunciation (LAC). Pleco would be complete if it could facilitate a link to MOE's very authoritative Hokkien 閩南語 (available free website). If only I could lay my hands on the paid add-on. Someday, all dictionaries will be made this way!
The OCR used to be able to read the Chinese texts on wechat which was fantastic! But now there's no floating interfaces for the texts. It only has floating interfaces of the profile pictures and title... That doesn't really help me if I need to translate some words within the text. Could you please fix this so it translates the Chinese words with floating interface for the texts. Thank you.
Great basic anki support but, it'd be nice if there is options to include more field into anki card creation . At the moment it only allow 'hanzi simplified vocab', 'hanzi traditional voxab', and 'meaning'. Anyway to include 'source sentence' field when creating anki card during eReader reading as well? Since having context of the book I am reading helps retain the vocab more. I don't even mind if it's a paid feature
Super useful. I'm relying on it every day for my study and daily life.
Good to use if you are a Chinese with understanding of Chinese words.
The best Chinese dictionary app. Very handy! And shows 繁體字 also. <3
Love this app, really useful. Would be great if entries also had suggested synonyms 😄
3.2.54/5: Fix for a couple of bugs in the document reader.
Just launched: our first paid e-book offerings. "Chinese History: A New Manual" 5/e by Endymion Wilkinson (an essential reference for anything to do with Chinese history), plus two collections of graded readings, the "Graded Chinese Reader" series by Sinolingua plus "Selections from The Chairman's Bao" (graded-reading news articles).
