The Kangxi Dictionary (1716: 康熙字典 Kāngxī zìdiǎn) was the standard Chinese dictionary during the 18th and 19th centuries. The Kangxi Emperor of the Manchu Qing Dynasty ordered its compilation in 1710 and it was published in 1716. The dictionary is named after the Emperor's era name.

The dictionary contains more than 47, 000 characters (including obscure, variant, rare, and archaic characters) but less than a quarter of these characters are now in common use.

3/5 stars

there are some problems...

1. There are a lot of disfigured characters like square "□" in definitions.

is this only my case??

2. As you can see up in iphone screenshot, stroke orders(筆順) are all incorrect, actually not related to the referent character at all.

give me the fix please~

Works on iPad at least

Would be nice if it worked on my 3G phone. Cannot get to the content pages. Contacted the developers and they blame the iPhone OS. Hope they fix it because it works great in my iPad.
