Not ready for prime time yet - I just down loaded this program and have had a quick look. It over fills the screen with no ability to reduce its size so it goes off the bottom of the screen. In the Apps Store it shows a writing input, but I can't find this. Most of the menu items are greyed out and there is NO help. The program is nearly worthless at this point, but could be promising if you could get the whole window on the screen and if there was some help.

Decent Dictionary with a few problems - Overall this dictionary functions well for me and accomplishes its purpose. There are a few issues however that, if fixed, would greatly increase the quality of the app. The window size is not adjustable and fills most of my 15 inch screen, making the bottom edge difficult to view. The search results also seem to have little logical order when using English input. For example, when entering the word "fish" I get results such as "dwarfish," "selfish," and "bamboo fish trap" near the top of the results, yet I have to scroll fairly far down in order to find the actual Chinese word for the animal we call a fish. This can make searching through English input frustrating.
