Chinese Language Learning – Quick guide to native reading apps, services and platforms

I’ll like to share with you a really quick on my favourite reading apps, services and platforms that are easily accessible for oversea users.

For those looking to step into native novels and webnovels and want to give natives apps a try, you can try one of these three.

# My top recommendation

**微信读书 (**[**https://weread.qq.com/**](https://weread.qq.com/)**)**

* **Simple and clean UI**, with minimalist social features. One of the best native apps.
* WeChat (微信) is the only login method. **An account is required to access the locked content**, collect VIP membership days and credit/coins for purchasing chapters.
* The app can be downloaded directly from the [Apple App](https://apps.apple.com/cn/app/%E5%BE%AE%E4%BF%A1%E8%AF%BB%E4%B9%A6/id952059546) or [Google Play](https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tencent.weread&hl=zh&gl=US) store.
* **Lots of free published books, webnovels and audiobooks** (requires collecting free VIP membership days on the phone app)
* The website version can be **used with a browser popup dictionary**. See this guide: [https://heavenlypath.notion.site/What-is-and-how-to-use-it-with-a-popup-dictionary-08abeb4e0c354b29b8ac29b3e02ae750](https://heavenlypath.notion.site/What-is-and-how-to-use-it-with-a-popup-dictionary-08abeb4e0c354b29b8ac29b3e02ae750)

# I also like these apps

**晋江文学城 (**[**https://www.jjwxc.net/**](https://www.jjwxc.net/)**)**

* Lots of free and paid webnovels, mainly in the romance, boylove, strong female lead and non-romance categories.
* **Email address/telephone number and password login available**.
* **PayPal available** when toping up from the website, it’s a little more expensive than other methods.
* Topping up via **TaoBao is also available**, simply provide your JJID at checkout.
* The app can be downloaded directly via Apple App Store, and the Android APK can be downloaded from their site.
* Browser popup dictionary plugins works without any additional tools when reading via the website. **Perfect platform for reading webnovels if you require a Chinese → English popup dictionary.**

**起点中文网 (**[**https://www.qidian.com/**](https://www.qidian.com/)**) & 起点女生网 (**[https://www.qdmm.com/](https://www.qdmm.com/))

* **Login with telephone number and password available.** Works with oversea telephone numbers.
* **PayPal payment is available when topping up on Android or via the website**, it’s a little more expensive than other methods.
* The app can be downloaded directly via [Apple App](https://apps.apple.com/us/app/%E8%B5%B7%E7%82%B9%E8%AF%BB%E4%B9%A6-%E6%AD%A3%E7%89%88%E5%B0%8F%E8%AF%B4%E6%BC%AB%E7%94%BB%E9%98%85%E8%AF%BB%E4%B8%AD%E6%96%87%E7%BD%91/id534174796) store (called 起点读书), and the Android APK can be downloaded from their site.
* Browser popup dictionary plugins works without any additional tools when reading via the website. **Perfect platform for reading webnovels if you require a Chinese → English popup dictionary.**
* **The phone app has a lot of features**, and will take a while to get use to.
