Ratings and Reviews
This is not what it says it is
This dictionary will not search by pinyin, will not give you pinyin definitions along with Chinese characters, seems to have no useful function at all for helping me learn Mandarin. If you are looking for a Chinese (character and pinyin) to English dictionary, this isn't it.
