Great App, but the voice sounds really weird I love all the features of this app. But the Cantonese male voice sounds like the version of the voice from " The Saw". It's really slow and very creepy. Can this be fixed?

Words are being cut off :( when I select a word, the intonations show up but then the word gets partially cut off on the right side. It's really distracting, please fix.

Such Great Help I study languages a lot and I find this program useful. It's the only Android app I know that annotates Chinese. I just paste in news articles and I'm able to quickly read without needing to look things up externally. So great!
