Mandarin Pinyin & IPA Central


Snap It. Type It. Read It.

A typical Chinese person learns about 8000 characters during a lifetime. In this app, we include a database of 20000 characters (both traditional and simplified are well represented)! Out of these characters, about 2000 of them hold multiple pronunciations according to the meaning and situation. Having an accurate reference for the different pronunciation is certainly important. This app aims to address these cases better than many existing sources elsewhere. From Pinyin to IPA, we hope to satisfy a wide range of usages from beginner's speaker to advanced performer (singer). Version 1.1 or later comes with picture recognition.
