Great except for one thing

The stroke recognition when you’re writing characters is really terrible, especially with dots and short strokes. You can go over a stroke exactly and it will shake indicating you’ve done it wrong. The parameters for a correct stroke are too narrow and it slows down my studying tremendously.

Thank you for your kind feedback!
We are already working on it. Will be fixed in the next releases 🤗


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.

pretty good with one issue

this app is really good and i only have one issue: when the pop up to buy premium appears on screen, there's no way to get rid of it, and if there is i guess it isn't visible enough 😭 i have to open the app and if the pop up takes too long to load in then there is a x to get rid of it and i have to tap it really fast but if the pop up loads in on time then i can't use the app.
i hope that made sense
