Much better than competitors which have seen, just try


Good but needs to be a tool for learning

It’s a great tool for writing and writing and writing Chinese characters. Sorry but it’s the only way to learn. I wish that characters you learn you could automatically add in a word list. I also wish when they break up multiple characters words you could easily learn what that character means and sounds like on its own.

"0110" "it's 01134" "01134" ,

App keeps glitching

Some things are not clickable after awhile after navigating the app such as the back button or learn button

Also it would be useful to add textbooks to my library so they’re easily accessible and I don’t have to go back to search for it every time

Developer Response ,

Some bugs have been fixed already, please upgrade the app. And we'll release a new version next week, hope you'll like the new Learning page.
