Chinesebrowser™ is seemlessly integrated with Pīnyīncidian. When the Android App is not installed, Chinesebrowser™ automatically route a lookup to the online version otherwise it will load the App. Both versions are exactly the same in terms of look and behaviour, the difference being in speed of lookup and is dependent on your internet connection to our website. And of course, the Android App version will not incur mobile data charges.

Users of Pīnyīncidian will find that both the online version ( and the mobile App (offline) version look and behave EXACTLY the same. The user interface is designed to be intuitive and web-like. After a search, exploration simply involve touch/clicking around. Advanced searches, such as searching in a specific field, is also very web-like and is specified in the search field.
