NO SUBSCRIPTIONS; we offer additional dictionaries, graded readers, and other features as one-time purchases, but there are absolutely no subscriptions in our app. Pleco is the ultimate Chinese learning companion: an integrated dictionary / document reader / flashcard system with fullscreen handwriting input and live OCR, from a company that's been making the world's best mobile Chinese learning apps since 2001. Major features: ($ = paid add-on) • Amazing dictionaries. We offer two free built-in dictionaries: the popular open-source CC-CEDICT, with over 110,000 frequently-updated entries, and our own PLC dictionary, with 125,000 entries, parts of speech, and over 25,000 example sentences (with Pinyin). More than two dozen other dictionaries are available as free and paid ($) add-ons, including licensed titles from well-known publishers like Oxford, Longman, FLTRP, Tuttle, SLPH, and Commercial Press. • Powerful merged search: look up words by Chinese characters, Pinyin (spaces / tones optional), or English, with support for wildcards and full-text search. And no need to tediously flip between all of those dictionaries to find a word - just type in your search term and instantly get a combined, frequency-sorted result list. • Links and cross-references: easily look up character components, break down words into individual characters, look up lists of words containing a particular character, and search across all dictionaries for example sentences containing a word. • Gorgeous typography: see it for yourself in our screenshots - we think we're one of the best-looking Chinese dictionaries around. Alternate Kai/Song/Xing-style Chinese fonts are also available ($). • PRC/HK/Taiwan-friendly: every part of Pleco supports both traditional and simplified characters, headword pronunciations can be shown in Zhuyin as well as in Pinyin, and several dictionaries even support Cantonese. • Audio: Hear Mandarin and Cantonese for words and example sentences using iOS' free built-in text-to-speech system. We also offer add-ons ($) with native-speaker Mandarin and Cantonese recordings, plus higher-quality Mandarin text-to-speech options. • Document Reader: bring in text from the clipboard and tap on words in it to instantly look them up. Upgrade ($) adds support for tap-lookups in text, HTML, DOC, DOCX, PDF, and EPUB files. We also offer graded readings ($). • OCR: look up words simply by pointing your device's camera at them, or by tapping on them in a still image. ($) • Fullscreen handwriting: use your device's whole screen instead of just a little box. Extremely accurate and highly tolerant of stroke order mistakes. ($) • Flashcards: create a card from any dictionary entry with a single button tap, import premade word lists, use advanced memorization techniques like SRS, and study in a variety of modes including fill-in-the-blanks handwriting and tone drills. ($) • Stroke Order Diagrams: animations showing you how to draw each character; 500 characters for free, 28,000 in paid ($) version. • User dictionaries: create new dictionary entries right on your device as you encounter new words. ($) • Absolutely no ads.

  • Har brugt appen et par dage

    Af Fhjuihtt
    og det virker som en glimrende ordbog med mange definitioner og eksempelsætninger. Ingen reklamer! Desværre er det som standard ikke muligt at finde skriftstegn ved selv at tegne dem, det kræver et tilkøb.
  • Good but costs money

    Af dragedk
    I Like it but it would be Nice with more free stuff. Line stroke oder. Beside some stuff costs money it’s good but they could reduce the prices a bit.
  • A must have!

    Af Idhrendir
    I have started learning Chinese and Pleco plays a key role: multiple dictionaries, excellent flash card system!, handwriting recognition, etc. Definitely a must have.

    This application has no competition. If you are serious in studying Chinese, it would be stupid not to get it. The idea of the app is that it gives access to a number of dictionaries. Some of these dictionaries are free of charge. However, you will probably want to add one or more paid dictionaries. There is a large number of these, helpful for every level of Chinese. In addition to the dictionaries, there is a good flash card system (which costs some money) and a optical character recogniser system (which also costs money) and a few other helpful add ons. Anyhow, you should definitely try out the free version, which is already quite useful. After trying it out, it is quite likely that later you will want to buy some additional dictionaries and add ons. I did.
  • Great!

    Af Rettighed
    I love Pleco ! It's necessary to have this app when you're studying Chinese. How ever I think it is really stupid that those who have iPhone don't get everything included as those who has fx. Samsung and has to buy the expensive 'adds on'...
  • Best app ever

    Af Lykkefalk
    I've been using this app for over 6 years and still using it. No matter what your level is this app is worth downloading. Don't waste time looking for others, this is what you will need.
  • I love Pleco

    Af Bladselleri
    Pleco is simply 太棒了. It's got everything you need for a Chinese dictionary - easy input, nice example sentences and great handwriting input plus stroke order diagrams (you need to add the last two yourself though). However, the best thing is the flashcard system - it has really helped me practice words and characters in my everyday life and is great on the go. I can highly recommend Pleco to everyone who's learning Chinese.
