Pinyin Typist Icon Screenshot Pīnyīn Typist is the quickest, easiest, most natural, and most fun way to type exactly the Pīnyīn you want, with proper diacritical tone marks, on the iPhone, the iPod touch, and the iPad. It turns typing Pīnyīn from a pain into a pleasure.

With Pīnyīn Typist on your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, you can quickly and easily type real Pīnyīn text with tone marks to write down anything you hear or want to say in Mandarin, just about anytime the need arises or inspiration strikes. It even puts the tone marks over the right vowels for you. Pīnyīn Typist is thus a must-have app if you are learning or teaching Mandarin, or if sometimes you want or need to write down Mandarin expressions, but you or the one(s) you’re writing to don’t (or don’t want to have to) know all the Chinese characters involved. (THIS APP IS NOT AN ALTERNATIVE WAY TO TYPE CHINESE CHARACTERS—it supports the standard iOS ways of entering characters.)
