    "Chinese Characters Are A Tap Away"

    THE VERDICT

    Google Pinyin is a new way to add a Chinese keyboard to your mobile device. It has a number of functions that will assist you in getting the language right. With several screen interface optimization options, there is some usefulness here.

    THE PROS

    If you are looking for an alternate Chinese language function keyboard, Google Pinyin is an option. It provides the full QWERTY experience for Chinese characters. It also provides Latin translation and full swipe and gesture typing functions.

    THE CONS

    There are some problems with the manually set language option defaulting upon reentering the app. It's got limited mass appeal. It updates quite a bit and slows down the device. Some words were grouped by category and not usage.
