  2. Do you have any plans to make a version of this for Windows on the PC? I'd pay to use it.

  3. Dear Michael,

    There are many Cantonese Romanization Systems in use daily, as described at
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Standard_Cantonese#Romanization.

    Our keyboard use the Hong Kong Government Cantonese Romanization convention http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hong_Kong_Government_Cantonese_Romanisation.

    Try the following online dictionary http://www.cantoneseinput.com/index.php and it uses a similar system.

    圈 is huen for us.
