Wrong phonetics! Great app but has its flaws. Found some wrong phonetics linked to characters/definitions. Not something I would expect from paying app. No response to email either. Beware of learning wrong pronounciations!
Good but more features needed I downloaded app to drill my preschool kid for his spelling. I just tried and to my dismay found that 3 words (睛,雨,热) not found in app. Hope the vocab can be expanded. I would also like a custom list of words to learn n drill rather than going from set to set. That said, I do like the feature of tracing over the numbered strokes as this is how my son learns in school and he can practise easily on my tablet now. The drill mode is good too as he check the strokes and order are correct.
Great App - More Characters Please! This is hands down the most intuitive way to learn to write and remember Chinese characters. Good job, developers! I look forward to having access to a larger character set.
Slow response in Android 5 This app helped me with my Chinese writing, until I got a new phone. In Android 5 the app is very unresponsive. The drawing lines lag, and it frequently freezes, unlike in earlier Android versions. Please update this otherwise excellent app.
Not bad Needs a better way to browse characters and quickly edit the working set, but otherwise very useful and definitely worth the money.
Pretty solid 28 characters in each of 15 sets is 420 characters, (x2 as it also has traditional) and they have a bit of flair to them rather than simple lines. Rapid repetition of the characters is the idea here. Worth the money.
*Several phones have had the new framework opened up to them. Thanks, N!
*Stroke order corrections
*Fixed a bug where certain characters had no translations within search
*New way of storing and fetching sound files means smaller app size and greater flexibility
*New background images
*Fixed a bug where certain characters were searchable but not viewable
