Fixed bug in Chinese links within ABC-EC definitions – there used to be a problem when parsing complex pinyin (e.g. “ban4 zuo4/chang4”)
Note: Paid Audio and Dictionary add-ons are not available on Amazon Appstore version (and so 5.2 is only being released on Google Play Store).
This fixes a bug where the soft keyboard would close as soon as the popup window (showing the Chinese headword & definition) appeared. This made it difficult to read Chinese text in the soft keyboard itself (for example, the word suggestions).
We’ve teamed up with The Chairman’s Bao (TCB) (an online Chinese newspaper aimed at people learning Mandarin Chinese) to bring more example sentences to Hanping Pro! Although The Chairman’s Bao is aimed at people learning Simplified Mandarin, the example sentences in Hanping include both Simplified & Traditional characters. Naturally, both Pinyin and Zhuyin are also supported. Each sentence is shown with the English translation (Pro version only).
Click on the sentence to examine it in more detail:
Click on the TCB abbreviation (on the right) to launch the TCB app (or launch the Play Store app at the TCB page, if not already installed).
Long-click on the TCB abbreviation to open the TCB website. You will be taken straight to the corresponding article if you are logged in and are a TCB subscriber.
For more example sentences (ones curated specifically for language-learners) please consider purchasing one or both of our ABC add-ons.

This is a major update bringing a new beautiful font where 9501 characters can be animated!
Single-character headwords are auto-animated when the dictionary entry is shown. Tap on the character to animate again
Multi-character headwords can be animated by long-pressing on the appropriate character
If you don’t want animations to be auto-triggered, then change the Animation Mode to Plain or Numbered in Hanping’s Chinese Settings
839 animations already unlocked. A further 8662 characters can be unlocked via an in-app purchase
Hanping now has a new default font and the new animations match these perfectly (i.e. transitioning from characters to their animated forms is seamless). If you previously used a custom font, we recommend changing to the Default font (in Chinese Settings)
