K-T dictionary

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.

Best value of ALL language study apps

I can't IMAGINE a more useful app for Chinese study. Versatile, comprehensive, and practically free...! What more could you ask? It saved me in Taiwan for the year I was there, and brought my vocab up a huge notch.
