Yes, both are included. You can download either, or both.
This product is a nice addition even for young learners to recognize the sound and semantic components.
Looking forward to more entries and feature additions. There's a good chance that I will spend more money than I should ^^
Just to note: While I have not used the Outlier dictionary a lot, I do look and I am starting to guess character pronunciations based on the little I have learned from the Outlier dictionary so far.
I read on Outlier's blog that update 1.1 is nearly here. Does Pleco have any news on this front?
Just that update 1.1 is nearly here
Data sent to Pleco. It was a bigger update than we even realized.
Announcement here, along with details about all the new stuff in this release.
Just wondering, is the long term plan to keep this is a standalone dictionary? Or are there plans to install it as an add-on that will integrate with the "CHARS" tab?
Normally, I look in the dictionary listings for definitions, and click on the CHARS tab to find out more about a character.
Long-term plan is to integrate it - actually the plan is that the tabs themselves will be customizable in 4.0 or 4.1.
It's out! Here's a screen shot:
More screen shots and info about this release available here.
Better and better!...
[edit:] I was about to ask why I couldn't see the coloring, but then I read your update notes.
Update your copy of Pleco folks! Don't be dumb like me and wonder why you are not seeing everything.
not to nitpick but: ancient forms, red/black simplified characters and stroke order doesn't look nearly as crisp or clean on andorid
They look clean here - what brand / model of phone + version of Android is this?
ARChon Custom Runtime 2.1.0 - x86_6441.4410.238.0 // Pleco Chinese Dictionary 3.2.23
Archon + Pleco 3.2.47, not so bad: anyway ARChon is not Android (perhaps it's similar to Chromium OS, but I'm not an expert...)
My nexus5x & Android 7.1.2 has a better image.
Ah, yes, probably some combination of the lower resolution of (most) desktop screens + ARChon not shipping with a very good image scaling algorithm. We're thinking about adding support for embedded vector images (SVGs) in our 4.0 update, which might render better.
Just a suggestion. In entries like 高, to add this piece of information: "高 gāo is a sound component in 膏 搞 稿 敲 (among other characters)".
That sort of thing will be in the Essentials and Expert Editions. Check out the "System" tab in the entries for 立, 各, and 尚 in our demo for an idea of what that may look like (though the actual implementation may be different).
How do I buy this?
I have looked everywhere in the 'Add Ons' section but I can't find it...
How much is it in £ Pounds? I want the Expert edition.
Only the Mini Edition is currently available in Pleco. The Essentials and Expert Editions can be pre-ordered through our website. If you pre-order, you'll get the current version plus updates until your chosen version is complete.
