Staying in China is a difficult thing for a newcomer, especially if you have money that is mediocre. As someone who has recently graduated from college and they should be careful in spending money, I have 12 applications that I use or I wish I knew from the first time being in China. May your journey in index apk
Waygo are translators who specialized vocabulary storing food and transportation. You just have to point your iPhone camera into text Mandarin, arrange the text in the box provided, and when the application is to recognize letters, the box will change color to orange and you will get the correct translation. Waygo not claim to be a comprehensive dictionary. You will only get the translation in the form of a few words, not a full definition – but it was enough to know what you ordered or where you should go. For the purpose of food and transport, this app is much better than regular dictionary application. It also does not require an internet connection to work.
You can also translate a few words or sentences at a time, which saves time when you read the menu, be it western cuisines as well as Chinese cuisine. You’ll get 100 free earlier translations (each sentence is counted as one translation). After that, you can only get 10 free translations per day. If 10 is not enough, then you can upgrade this service by paying USD 18 (USD 200,000). Waygo promised to release a version of Android, but there is no clear information when the Android version will be available.
If you do not speak Mandarin, the bus ride is an activity that is almost impossible to do in China. Unlike the subway system, bus guide in China all Chinese (no English at all), and stop at all the name is not shown. Applications that locate a nearby public bus could be a very valuable guide. Pandabus, available in English and Mandarin, using your phone’s GPS search and show all the buses in the area where you are, to where the buses are of interest, and how often the buses are in operation.
Unfortunately, the bus tracker in real-time is not available in this app. But you can at least know how long you have to wait. This app works on more than 300 cities in China and available on iOS and Android for free.
Didi Dache And Kuaide Dache
I wonder which one is better app. But, I usually use when Didi was in North China and South China Kuaide in. This application will search for the nearest taxi driver who also use the application. There are some minor differences between these two applications, but the process is more or less the same: enter how many ‘bonus’ could you give to the driver (in Beijing maximum RMP 5) to get her to pick you, where you are, how long you want wait, and so on. After the driver agreed to pick you, this app will send information such taxi cab so you know where you ordered. This application also allows you to provide an assessment to the driver based on performance and response time. Both of these applications are available on iOS and Android, but unfortunately still in Mandarin.
Baidu Maps and Google Maps
User interface Baidu Maps is only available in Mandarin. But, based on my experience, the map is more up-to-date compared to Google Maps. If you want to look have a name in English, Baidu usually still will provide relevant results. The application also works well if the user uses the spelling alphabet / Mandarin Pinyin to enter a name. For me, Baidu Maps GPS is more reliable than the property of Google Maps. Baidu Maps available on Android andiOS .
Google Maps is my second choice after Baidu Maps. Although not as detailed and as up-to-date Baidu Maps, interface , street names, and famous places are available in the alphabet.Google Maps is currently available on iOS and Android .
There are many applications a map of the city and the subway are available in China, and you can see if any city map to look it up on Google. For Shanghai, Guangzhou, and Beijing, I recommend ExploreMetro app for iOS and Android , which has navigation cities and subway a clear and complete with service providers, a train, and a road map for the area around the station. Subway lines do exist in Baidu Maps and Google Maps. But, one separate map can certainly make your navigation more clearly.
Pleco or Hanping
Got a pocket dictionary is a good thing, and pleco and Hanping is the right choice for it.Features available for free on this application is limited, but the handwriting recognition via a camera and handwriting input can be obtained for a price. But those features are more detailed than Google Translate (see below) if you are looking for relevant words. You can search for a word in the English language, spelling Mandarin alphabet / Pinyin, or the Chinese language, and you’ll get a list of results and the results of the approach if possible you typed. Pleco available on Android and iOS, while Hanping only available on Android.
Despite often poor translation, Google Translate has a free character recognition available on your smartphone camera. You stay photographing writing Mandarin, mark what you want to translate using your finger, and you will get your desired translation. But you will not get the details like the other dictionary applications. Google processes the entire text you enter and do not separate each character one by one. However, this application is still doing his job. Keep in mind that you need an internet connection to use this application. Google Translate is available on Android and iOS .
We recently made an article about the new ticket booking application from the railway ministry. Applications are bad, and removed from the ministry web page a few hours after launch, and until now has not reappeared. So, as an alternative, I suggest you use China Trains from Travel China Guide. Find and book your train tickets like the way you book your ticket, and asked the Chinese team Trains deliver your tickets directly. Unfortunately, the ticket can be fairly expensive. This app is available on iOS and Android . To be honest, maybe you better buy tickets directly at one of the stores that provide, or directly at the train station.
Initially I was hesitant to enter this application because it is completely Chinese. But, I think you need to know this app. TouchChina create a map that has a voice guidance for more than 100 tourist sites throughout China. You can download this application in full, or to install guides for each location separately. This application work offline and have professional voice guidance. This app unfortunately does not use GPS to monitor your location on the map.But, you can still figure out the situation around and position yourself.
