If you're studying Mandarin Chinese, this is the pinyin chart for you. It's the only pinyin chart for the iPad to make full use of zooming and panning controls to make pinyin study easy and enjoyable. The interface is simple, clean, and ad-free. Every pinyin syllable has audio associated, and toggling between the four different tones of Mandarin Chinese is easy.
More advanced students of Chinese will enjoy the pinyin chart's support for alternate phonetic representations of Mandarin Chinese. The app comes with support for the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) for free, but other romanization systems like Wade-Giles, as well as alternate representations like zhuyin (used in Taiwan) are available by in-app purchase.

Ratings and Reviews
It's a simple app that works well. The voice is clear. I like having the IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet) as an alternative to the Pinyin system which can be rather misleading to the English user at first (Pinyin, the official transliteration system in China, isn't designed for foreigners, after all, but for Chinese users, so /tɑʊ/ is written as dàu, making best use of unaltered Latin letters).
Very polished app for learning Pinyin
The best iPad apps do one thing, and do it very well. This is a great example. Touch-friendly controls, excellent quality audio and an intuitive and beautiful interface. If you need a Pinyin chart, why use anything else?
Good App but Update Needed
A great app but for me now it crashes. Needs an update
