Great app but could use some improvement

Really great subject matter, and when you click on words it shows the pinyin and word translation.

Would love to be able to have full sentence translation (unless that exists and the capability just isn’t easy to find) and the audio never works on my app so I can’t practice listening.

Kudos for great audio

There’s a lot of Chinese pop-ups to help aid in reading and understanding the Chinese words but this has audio that’s not like the usual automated robotic speak—it sounds natural and accurate. NOTE: another reviewer felt this aspect of the app was sub-par (paraphrasing), but if you’ve listened to other text-to-speech apps for Chinese, Decipher’s sounds more natural. I’m not a paying customer yet cuz I have a lot of things going on now so I don’t have that much time to spend with this app but like yet another reviewer said, I might pay to support the writers—just not quite yet...

Update: it's nice you can get messages following the comments section for each article especially if you have questions about language usage.

Great for Chinese Learners

I love the fact that these articles have HSK levels associated with them so you know beforehand what level difficulty you’re going to read. The ability to look up the words, listen to their pronunciation and add them to vocabulary decks is also pretty cool. I haven’t used the feature yet, but you can export vocabulary cards to Pleco. I may sign up for the premium features to support the authors, because the app is great and I’d like to get access to the archived articles. Great app!
