My Go-To for Handwriting Practice

I’ve tried Skritter + Noodle. While these apps have fancy bells and whistles such as spaced repetition and self testing, Strokes Order is my new go-to for handwriting practice. It has a no-nonsense interface which shows you your actual handwriting strokes instead of an idealized ’perfect’ character that the fancy apps render. This is superior design choice-as knowing where you fall short while writing a character gives you honest feedback and motivation for improvement. The developer is also very responsive. The previous version had a blocky background font for Traditional characters in the handwriting practice mode. I wrote the developer a quick note, and Viola - font background preferences for handwriting practice has now been implemented. Excellent!

Free version is basically unusable after the update

I was fine with the occasional ad, but now every time you open the app you get 2 ads for every character. The app and these ads also prevents you from listening from audio on another app which is extremely frustrating if I’m trying to study chinese. I don’t know if buying the pro version would even help with preventing my audio from another app from turning off because the ads are just that prevalent. Is the sound turning off due to the ad or because I switched to a different character? Unclear.

I really truly regret updating to the latest version. The app is great in terms of UX, but there are plenty of online resources that provide the same thing for free — and ad free. I liked the idea of donating “a cup of coffee” to the developers, but who would bother doing that now?

Developer Response ,

If you think those free resources are better,dont waste your time to use this app.Update Pro Version you will get better experience.
