Wildcard Search for Finding Related Words
A nifty feature of Pin Pin Chinese is the ability to find words related to a given character you are learning or looking up. Just type or paste in the character and you can see loads of related words based on that character. This is incredibly useful for learning associations and getting a greater feel for a character's meaning and use.
Thanks Pin Pin!
