Good, but not as good as the website

Good first release, but doesn't contain all the features from the website (e.g. characters by frequency), which I kind of expected, given that the website is free and this is paid. It works just as a reference/dictionary to look up characters.

Can't wait until this changes. Will make sure to update the review.

Developer Response ,

Hi Jaka,

thanks for the review & feedback. You're totally correct, there's a few things missing still in this first release. I hope to add the lists & frequency info into the next release (right after I get the Android version out there).

It's important for me that the app has a great experience, if not a better experience in the long run. Hoping to explore some mobile specific features in the future too.

Thanks in advance for the patience. Happy learning!

P.S. - If you have any other feedback/ideas/thoughts, I'm happy to listen!

Not currently useable...

Was very excited for this app as Hanizcraft is a very high quality resource. Unfortunately the iPad version does not appear to be usable, as the app refuses to rotate into horizontal positon, making it very impractical for studying. Additionally it seems to be missing many of the key features of the website, such as frequency data for the hanzi. I am looking forward to updates for the app.

Almost perfect for iPad

This app does exactly what I need it to, in terms of functionality. I find the app easier to access than the website when I’m jumping between other apps like Pleco and Anki. My only request - please add landscape support for iPad. Thank you!
