I use Hanping Chinese Pro as it supports pinyin, english and handwriting. For around $10US it's a very reasonable investment. This software also speaks the words in Chinese.

For scanning text I use Scan doc. ww. xmscan.com - again a small cost. With both of these apps there is a free version which is quite functional. In Hanping Chinese Pro it gives you a few more functions such as marking favourite words and speaking. Support for Hanping is very good.

A bit off-topic, but could be very useful...

It's a paid app, though, so it's a pain to get it in China

In Market, search for "MarketEnabler" (quotes and capitalisation not important, but not having the space is). It's a free app by "rac". This allows you to trick Google into thinking you are in a different country (or a different network) and so get access to paid apps.

Pleco has just been released for androids - available on Android Market. Come on, download quickly, the handwriting recognition is only available till 30 June. I haven't tested it myself (I installed Hanping recently), it's downloading while I'm typing.

Ok, started. Looks very good!
