Hanping Chinese Dictionary Pro/Lite/Cantonese 5.0 released

  • 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)
