Reviews of DianHua Dictionary

  • Stopped working on my phone

    Love this app! No longer opens upon (or shortly after) installing iOS 14. Please fix!
  • Not updating

    DianHua audio doesn’t work. Please update
  • Awesome app!

    This app has taken my learning of Chinese to a whole new level. I have been using it in conjunction with Google Translate for a free audio workaround, but I have been so happy with the free Dian Hua app I just gladly paid for the full audio version. Thank you for making and supporting such a fantastic tool!
