This is, by far, the best dictionary I have ever used. It also holds the title of first android app ever purchased since going android in 11/09.
Seems to be a fantastic tool
Love: offline + widget (has bugs) + ongoing development updates! Requests: 1. show Radicles offline 2. Example sentences offline
Superb app. Definitely worth the money.
This Chinese-English dictionary is truly a godsend!!! love that you can search by pinyin or by English definition w/o having to switch modes. Superb!!
Very useful app. It's worth money. Can you make audio button more accessible for quick navigation over long phrases?
Only app i ever paid for
Just Jack (*****)
