Awesome content, small problems

I absolutely love this app and recommend it to anyone looking to learn Chinese characters. It has mnemonics for not only the meaning, but the pronunciation and tone. Good quality audio for the characters. There’re also lots of example sentences and vocabulary words with audio. However, it needs some polishing to get 5 stars. The audio for example sentences is occasionally mismatched or transcribed incorrectly. There’s also no way to access the main menu without pushing the back button a million times. It would also be nice if you could turn on a reminder to review past characters. The review is often problematic though because some characters have multiple readings, so you can select a falsely “wrong” answer. That said, these are pretty minor flaws given how great the rest of the app is. I remember the characters I learn using this with almost zero repetition necessary!!!!

Good app - too few characters for advanced learning

The mnemonics are definitely good, the illustrations are solid, but this strategy I find is too slow to do for every character. Where I really need this is for the harder characters with similar appearances. While I like the system, it was missing too many characters to be of large utility.

If you read this after a while though I’d definitely see if the number of characters expands. I would definitely recommend.

Not quite the Mandarin wani kani...

For those familiar with what a spectacular character learning app looks like (aka wani kani) this is noticeably lower quality. Can’t log into a free trial account across multiple devices, no automatic spaced repetition prompting including all covered characters, no vocabulary in spaced repetitions, no regular timing for spaced repetitions, the stories are over-complicated (the “heroes” should be the main characters, not random children, angels, truckers etc, this would make the tone, pronunciation and character much easier to remember and straightforward). Users should also have to type in the spelling rather than use multiple choice, this is much better for memorization. For a free trial maybe this is fine but if people are paying money to use this, the spaced repetition needs to be much more rigorous.
