Learn Chinese with


HanZi Reader is an app for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad that can help you learn to read Chinese characters by the touch of your finger. As you slide your finger across the screen, the dictionary entry for the touched word is instantly displayed for you to see, and the Chinese word pops up above your finger so that your finger never obscures the word you’re reading.

HanZi Reader is very fast. There is no waiting for the app to find your entry in a dictionary as it’s pre-loaded before the screen is displayed. Your reading flow is never impeded by waiting, so you’re really able to get a feel for the meaning and grammar of the text, as well as become familiar with the characters by continued exposure to them.

HanZi Reader uses the CC-CEDICT dictionary with over 112,000 entires.
