Chinese apps can try Ireading HD. My ds likes Xi You Ji. Comes in 4 parts. Think 1st part is free and subsequent ones have to pay.

I am just looking for free and fun Chinese Apps for upper primary children.
Yup, activated the international keyboard for handwriting input - just using fingers and so far so good.

Have been only using the Chinese dictionaries KTDict and Pleco....downloaded some Chinese Comics but ds not interested..............

Wonder if there are any fun Chinese games ? Like Angry Bird kind ?
