Hey, I am living in Beijing studying Chinese. The free version of this app helped me "find" characters at a speed much faster than checking the dictionary. It has really sped up my learning process by allowing me to find out the meaning of characters much more easily. Specially the ones that I don't know the pronunciation of, I can just write them on the phone and the find them in the dictionary. I guess you can say the same thing of all the other chinese dictionaries in the app store, but I have found this one to be the fastest and most responsive so far. I bought the paid app just to show my support. Good Luck. :)

I used this app on the iPhone and it works great. However it does not work at all on the iPad. It keeps crashing. I emailed customer support and they said it is due to the latest upgrade iOS. However it has been over a month and I still can't use the app. ------------------------------------ The app is fantastic and extremely helpful for learning Chinese. I use this app everyday (since I am currently in china.) however, my 1 complaint is that there should be a way to just search in pinyin or just in English. Sometimes when looking for words there's just a huge list that takes a while to go through. Otherwise, this app is great.

This is an incredible App and an essential one for learning Chinese! One can access the dictionary by typing in English, Chinese, or Pinyin entries and then hear the pronunciation in Chinese. It's extremely easy to create customized flashcards and print them or print out lists. The reader feature is amazing, too. One can paste in Chinese and then "read" it word by word as as a whole text. And the OCR feature is extremely useful for inputting printing material and translating it word by word. It's now the only Chinese language App I turn to, and it has made my study of Chinese much less daunting.

Don't stop with just the free dictionary. You'll find the flashcard program well-worth the 4 bucks. The app has been updated a number of times and has improved every time. It used to crash a lot and ran somewhat slow. Clearly it has been optimized and now runs smoothly, even though it has more options and functions than before.

Since buying KT dict my test scores have improved dramatically. I now feel prepared going into each class. This application has helped me learn over 500 characters in only a couple of months. This application is a must have if you plan on studying mandarin.

This app is great! Use it more than my at home Chinese Dictionary. Up to date and accurate translations. Very handy when learning in class, on your own, and on the streets of China. It's a must have.

I love this app. I've learned tons of words with the flashcard trainer just by using it once a day. And the dictionary has had definitions of everything Ive thrown at it, including some helpful phrases. Get this. Has this company made a Spanish English dictionary?

This app has enabled me to learn more Mandarin in the past two months than I had in the previous two years. It's so convenient to be able to add flashcards directly from the dictionary. And I *especially* appreciate that the flashcards include characters, not just the pinyin romanizations. It makes it much easier to keep homonyms separate, even if you're not trying to learn to read Chinese. On the down side: the dictionary itself isn't wonderful. It's no worse than any other iPhone dictionary, but I wish the definitions had a little more to them. There's frequently more than one Mandarin result for the same English word or phrase, with no explanation as to which translation is better in what circumstance. But that's a common issue with most of the online dictionaries I've tried. One feature I would love to see is audio. I think that every little bit helps when you're trying to learn a language--if you can use your ears as well as your eyes it goes into your brain that much more effectively. Bottom line: this is the least expensive iPhone Chinese app I've tried, and in my opinion it is also the best. Thanks Klaus!
