Improved searching of user words/notes is actually under development, so please look out for that in a future update.

hp needs etymology addon -- to identify root radical and decompose to character elements: phonetic and semantic. The only reason I go to pleco is to look up radical decomposition.

I was just playing around SmartHanzi app and initial use really like the EDHCC dictionary sections that categorize character elements.

Hi, thank you for your feedback. I'm aware of the SmartHanzi app and have seen occasional reference to the EDHCC dictionary, for example here.

Definitely etymology is something I'm interested in including, but I have a couple of other things to tackle first.

Feel free to email us if you would like to share more detailed feedback. Thanks again!

Please consider making an iOS app. I'm moving to iPhone and a lot of my friends who are learning Putonghua/Cantonese have iPhone. This is, honestly, the best Putonghua and Cantonese dictionary.

How about more options for anki support? Adding starred words is great but managing them is a bit of a pain. Creating decks based on tags would be much more awesome!

Hi and thank you for your suggestion! Yes, this comes up occasionally, so it's something I will look at. The original idea was that you can do everything with tags (because Anki has an option to filter decks by tags) so it seemed unnecessary. But for organisational purposes, I can see there is benefit.

Yes, I would love to have it on my Ipad actually. Would really help me to learn Cantonese faster. I live in Greece and started to talk to some people from China here. Most of them got Greece investment visa and are working and living here.

My suggestions (regarding the Dictionary Pro app):
* A toggle in Settings to enable automatic keyboard popup when using Android back navigation button from the search results page. Current functionality: navigating back from the results page takes us to the history list, but does not not pop the virtual keyboard up.
* Option to change the accent colour.

Thanks!

1. keyboard popup. I'll look into this. If I remember correctly, this becomes annoying because often you just want to back out of the app, and so this would add an extra tap. I'll try again though, and if it seems to work reasonably well, could add a setting.

2. accent colour: I try to keep the settings as simple as possible so only (what I feel are) the most useful toggles are included.
