Hanping Chinese Dictionary (Free) 2.5.4 released!

May 6th, 2011
  • Fixed bug regarding list items not in dictionary. This bug appeared in 2.5.0-2.5.3. For example, bringing up the hsk6 list would show the same entry (報酬, 报仇,”bao4 chou5″) multiple times due to a caching bug. It was this entry because this was the first entry in hsk6 that does not appear in the dictionary (CC-CEDICT 2.1.1). All later list items not in the dictionary were showing as the “bao4 chou5″ also. However, clicking on them would bring the correct item up in the Word Details screen (so at least that worked).  Side note: CC-CEDICT does have this word but with a different tone on the second syllable.
  • Updated AdMob library

  1. the phonetic system bug i reported via twitter since 2.5.1 is still there. Changing the phonetic system from pinyin to pin1yin1 will not be saved. Upon reset the app will revert back to phonetic system pinyin

      Hi – I cannot reproduce this error. The steps I perform are:

      1. Run Hanping
      2. Menu button > Settings > Phonetic System > pin1yin1
      3. Back > Back > … to come out of the app
      4. Run Hanping again

      I see the Pinyin with tone numbers as expected.

      Are you seeing this on the Free or Pro version? Which device and Android version are you using?

    2.5.4 version is much slower retrieving from dictionary database than previous version; running Android 1.6 n Samsung Galaxy.

    Will try reloading 2.5.3 to see if this is better.

      Thanks for the report. There were no performance changes from 2.5.3 to 2.5.4 so I would be surprised if the two behave differently. If you can narrow this down to something like “searching for X on version 2.5.4 is much slower than on version Y”, that would be very helpful.
