Must get this app if learning Chinese

This is a must-get-app if you're learning Chinese. The app has matured a lot over past 4 years.

My only struggle is trying to see the tiny digits on the graphs and hopefully one day we can zoom into the graphs.

Maybe a few other motivational features can be implemented to encourage learners to keep pushing themselves

Pricey but worth it

Pretty much packages everything you need to get started or maintain regular maintenance of your vocab. Support has also been super helpful replying to any questions promptly, been using the app for ages.

Developer Response ,

Thanks, Oliver! We might have mentioned this via support email, however there's a new version of the app called Skritter: Write Chinese which is a separate download in the App Store. We recommend using the new version instead-- it's much more powerful and you should like it even more! Thanks again for your review. :)

Love this app

Absolutely love this app for my study. There is a huge selection of textbooks to choose from and you can find pretty much any of the main ones. It's great for stroke order, tone recognition, character recognition and in general is a great cognitive tool to use for your study. I wish they would have a few sales every now and then on their subscriptions and a dialogue narrative would be really useful too. Also, some voice recognition to the app would be awesome but not sure if it would be possible
