Fun app for learning HSK or high-use words

This is a very user-friendly app that runs natively on both iPad and iPhone, making it both more pleasant to use and more accessible for people with visual impairment than iPhone-only apps. There are a variety of activities to learn the words, so it’s not repetitive and boring like purely flash card apps. I love the way the developers included details like color coding for the tones to help remember them with the word. Both mainland and traditional Chinese are available as well as one of my favorite features - a simplified vs. traditional character comparison game - great for folks who want to learn both like I do. The pro version is expensive but I waited for a push notification with a discount and am really enjoying the extra features. I still wish I didn’t have to pay for all the HSK levels separately though. The free version has a lot of functionality for those who don’t want to pay. Highly recommend for those who want to practice HSK vocab in a way that’s more fun and less tedious than other methods. There’s so many different things to do here to keep you motivated and seeing the words in these different contexts really helps with memory.

Amazing Source

This app is honestly underrated. I heard about it from a youtuber that i watch when studying myself. i looked it up and honestly fell in love. most of the features are available for free with some exceptions for the lessons and other items. it genuinely is worth it and if you can afford the pro version please go for it. it genuinely is one of the most helpful apps i’ve used and it’s so nice because the pronunciations don’t appear to be done by an AI. it sounds like a genuine person speaking which is awesome because no one wants to sound like a robot. i’d say my main issue is that there’s no like real progress done with the lessons. you can basically just go through whichever lesson you want and in any order and i find that it makes it hard to really follow anything. especially since once you start getting to the game section of the app, it will just show you random vocab with no real progression or unlocking new words or anything like that. i find it overwhelming so in terms of actually learning the characters i would recommend a different source and then heading towards the game section. other than that this app is 10/10!

Hi and thank you for your great review! We love your feedback, and we also want to improve lessons section with some exercise to train and probe that you have learned this lesson. Some great news will arrive soon to the iOS version about hanzi writing. Keep learning!

Phenomenal, thorough HSK1 lessons

There’s alot on this app, and it’s a good thing. The enormous varieties of games/quiz formats mean I can test and learn characters in many different contexts, which helps me learn them a lot better. (Though I use Duolingo a lot to supplement, it’s very easy to fall into pattern recognition with their lessons and not learn the material as solidly.) Free content is sufficient, but I happily paid the one time $18 (thank you for not making it subscription!!), well worth it for the dozens of study materials/lessons, quizzes/games, well structured dictionary, and easy to use and appealing design. Incredibly thorough educational material that’s well written and tested. Look forward to graduating to HSK2 next so I can opt for the next app!
