The writing experience is great. Feels pretty natural for a screen, although a stylus is a must to properly get a feel for the motions. Unfortunately, since a recent update, writing seems a bit off from where the stylus is on the screen. Also, while doing a writing exercise the app crashed completely. I still stand by the following, as it relates to a different bug. Developer response time is incredibly fast as well. I believe I saw a bug disappear within 24 hours of reporting it. 👏

Thanks for the review! Running into endless popups does sound ridiculous. We've had reports of this issue from a few people, but haven't been able to reproduce it on our end. Could you email team@skritter.com (you can use the Help button on the menu drawer) and let us know what settings you have on/off. We'd love to fix the problem!

I enjoy doing Skritter on both Japanese and Chinese! However, I have one problem with this app. When writing hiragana, you have to be ridiculously precise to register a single stroke. This really infuriated me, regardless of how precise I was, the stroke did not register. I really hope you fix this on the app. Thank you.

The beta app was just released as a non beta version (3.3.6) and it fixes this! If you'd like, we'd really appreciate what you think after giving it a go. :)

Really great for learning to write kana or kanji, or like me using writing and repeated testing to help promote vocab and grammar memorization. I like the custom flashcard and deck options a lot! Gives me lots of flexibility in my studying. Definitely works best with a stylus to than your finger simply because it more naturally mimics the feel of writing.
