YiXue Chinese Dictionary is a fast Chinese/English dictionary and learning assistant for Windows Phone with smart flashcards, handwriting recognition, stroke order diagrams, example sentences and a strong focus on making it easier to learn Chinese.
It includes flashcard decks for all HSK and TOCFL levels, 20'000 example sentences, and lets you create your own study lists, practice your handwriting, and listen to the pronunciation of each character. It also has plenty of quizzes and games to help you memorize new vocabulary faster and more efficiently.
You'll quickly notice that YiXue does everything it can to make learning easier: search results are sorted by frequency, definitions include links to most frequent compounds (for example 易 links to 容易), example sentences are listed from easiest to hardest, and in games words that you know well pop up less often than others. It shows large characters so you can write on the screen with your finger, and displays radicals to help you remember new characters — and it even includes 2700 stroke order diagrams in case you're not sure how to write a simplified character!
You can reach me by mail directly from the app's home screen for questions, comments, or feature requests. Happy learning!
