Zungzi is derived from the Chinese words 鐘 zung (clock) and 字 zi (word). It is a flashcard app to learn up to 5,000 Chinese words (from the official HSK list) on the Apple Watch.

This app does not require you to manually setup decks like you would in Anki, provides more efficient learning than Chineasy, and has a more advanced learning algorithm than Pleco.

Some of the key features of this app are:
- Spaced-repetition algorithm to repeat words that you attempt incorrectly more frequently than the words that you know well.
- Support for traditional and simplified Chinese
- Support for pinyin and jyutping romanisations
- Bookmark words so you can look them up in a dictionary later
- Choosing the order in which you want to learn words (including HSK levels 1 to 6)
- 5,000 example sentences to learn how a word is used in practice
- Text-to-speech in both Cantonese and Mandarin
- Statistics to track how many words you have learnt
- Watchface complications to learn new words while glancing at the time
- Daily notifications to remind you to do a bit of study

great idea and execution

very good idea to make this app, and it looks/works great! one suggestion, if possible, it would be great to adjust the font size. on my watch the English and Pinyin is very small. it would be great to be able to increase the size of that and maybe the hanzi too.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the feedback, note it was designed with the smaller watch in mind so I had to use smaller fonts to fit all the text in. I will experiment with the layout to see if I can make it larger.

Perfect for the Watch

Flashcards form a great tool to hone language skills and this app puts them on your wrist.
The app is beautiful and easy to use. Perfect for a couple of minutes to spare; perfect for the Watch. Highly recommended.

Learning Cantonese/Mandarin simultaneously

I love this app, I have learnt so many new words from using flashcards everyday. The best thing is it can display both translations so I can learn Cantonese and Mandarin together!
