Xiao CiDian 1.0 now in the Android Market

Sunday, June 13th, 2010 | Android, News | No Comments

Just a quick note to let everyone know you can now download 小词典 from the Android Market place. I just installed it on my HTC Desire from the market place. It should run on any Android 2.1 device. I can’t wait for later this year when I get an Android tablet – good times :-D

Here is a movie of what it looks like (Nothing new if you’ve seen Xiao CiDian before).

To find it, just search the Andorid Market Place for “Xiao CiDian” or “Mandarin”

Happy studying!

I’ve made a lot of progress porting Xiao CiDian to Android. I had been too busy to work on the project, but sat down a few days ago and made it my priority (now that I use an Android phone and need the app myself). Here is a short movie showing the progress and a demo of the app

I still have some work to do, but as you can see most of the heavy backend lifting is done. I still need to get the UI sorted, and tighten things up a bit, but I should have a beta “soon”.
