Hanping Chinese Dictionary Lite 4.0 released

February 19th, 2015

Happy Chinese New Year!

To celebrate, this major update brings Chinese handwriting recognition and syllable-by-syllable audio (of a real native Chinese speaker) as well as a UI overhaul (Material Design).

  • Chinese Handwriting Recognition (Android 4.1 JellyBean and higher)
  • Syllable-by-syllable Audio (over 2000 recordings from a real native Mandarin speaker) (Android 4.1 JellyBean and higher)
  • Material design
  • Added Navigation Drawer – Settings, Add-ons, Backup/Restore etc screens are now available via top-left “hamburger” menu (on the Details screen, simply swipe from the left)
  • Better tabs – swipe left and right on the main Search screen to switch between History, Starred lists and predefined Lists
  • User-friendly naming for predefined lists (e.g. “Common Characters 1″ instead of “chars1″)
  • Heads-up Clipboard notifications (Android 5 Lollipop only)
  • Fixed history bug – using some IMEs would lead to lots of “random” words appearing in the history
  • Fixed copy/paste bug on search box – long-press on text inside search box now correctly brings up top contextual bar containing copy, paste etc buttons

Hanping Chinese Dictionary Pro 4.0.3 released

February 18th, 2015

  • Re-enabled English TTS (only applicable if ABC English-Chinese Dictionary add-on installed)
  • Much faster lookups for Hanping Chinese Camera

Hanping Chinese Camera 2.0 released

February 16th, 2015

This update brings a UI refresh of Material Design goodness and is currently being rolled out to all devices running Android 4.4 (KitKat) and higher.  The rollout may take a few days to complete.

  • Improved recognition
  • Material Design and redesigned action barn – even more user-friendly :)
  • Navigation Drawer
  • Better support for high-res images – now (on most newer devices) you can work with up to 16 megapixels. This is great when you are working with a page containing a lot of text, such as a large menu
  • Updated sample images – now there are two sets; one for Simplified characters and one for Traditional characters. The set shown depends on your Simp/Trad setting in Chinese Settings screen
  • Image Mode: added button (pen icon) to launch image editor (e.g. Android’s Photos app) – note: if you are viewing an auto-snapshot, first use save button (disk icon) to save the new image to your photo library
  • Image Mode: Moved text direction button out of action bar (because most people don’t use it). Overflow menu (top-right three dots icon) now has a “Show Direction”) item. Use that to show a text direction icon in the top-left corner of the window.
  • Live Mode: Flash button moved up into action bar (so easier to access). Macro button removed, because it didn’t work on many devices anyway.
  • Live Mode: Manual mode button (M icon) much simpler: now, it simply stops automatic refocusing and auto-snapshot. To focus, touch the window. To snapshot (i.e. use current preview in Image mode), use the shutter button (center-left icon)
  • Some bug fixes
