iCED Chinese Dictionary presents a unique way to use a Chinese dictionary. After you've found the entry you were searching for, iCED will continue to search for compound or component entries to complement your search. Component entry dissection allows you to quickly understand the meaning of components in longer words or phrases. For example, if you look up 中华人民共和国, iCED will also look up 中华 and 人民共和国. You can then select the latter to break it up into 人民 and 共和国. When you get to single characters, iCED will look up compound entries starting with that character.

No Radical index button on keyboard tab

I am on iPad (2017) and my version is 3.6.1. The only issue I encountered is that I do not see the radical index button on top of the keyboard pad. It does display flawlessly on my older 1st gen iPad with version 3.4.1. I also see it in the sample pictures in the App Store. Do you think it is due to a specific setting within the app or is it a software related issue that has to be fixed by the developer?

Keeps on spitting me out

When I start the program on my iPhone Xr it just kicks me back to the home screen. Must be a glitch for this version
