By far the best cantonese input Love how it works, you can simply type in english and it would show you the chinese word you are looking for so you don't have to waste your time to look up the word in dictionary. Great apps that i dont mind to pay for using it and it's just even better cause this is FREE.

Excellent! [新增] 在KitKat 尤其 CM 11 的4.4.4 上成日都窒窒下,好似就嚟hang 機噉。可否研究改善吓?謝謝![1/2013] Please let users edit the related phrases database also! ;) 最新版本 0.11.0 的鍵盤作了些修改,我個人覺得比之前的好!按鍵敏感度調教反而沒什麼用處,我需要把它設定為高 (high) 變回以前一樣。
