Real nice app. Clicking on audio icon does crash the app. It would be awesome if all the words can be switched between traditional and simplified. In addition, if possible, please give the option for pinyin and also audio read aloud of the definitions.

The best Chinese dictionary app EVER. Nothing else compares to this. Offline support would be 100x more awesome.

This could've been the Best Translating Application available on the WinMo 7 Marketplace. The UI remains true to the WinMo 7 Metro Theme, Navigation through the menus is very straightforward. The response time is very fluid and snappy. And there are plenty of unique features implemented to make this Application Stand Out when compared to all the other Translating Apps. Yet I decided to give the App a 3/5* Rating (Combo Breaker... Sorry) because it lacks so much in Selection. As of right now there is only 1 language supported, which I find a little weird. I am really hoping the Developer has future plans to add much more language options... Soon. Yet, I am still going to recommend this App because I see how much potential this Application has. It is much more rich and filled with much more content then just a simple translation. When more languages are supported, this App will become a very useful tool that I can see myself utilizing frequently. PLEASE UPDATE! -Projekt-
