A crucial app for learning Chinese

I’ve never written an app review before but was compelled to give TOFU Learn five stars. After incorporating it into my daily Mandarin studies and reviews, I’ve learned and retained at a much higher rate than before when I was using only Anki (which I still use in addition to TOFU). I believe this is thanks in large part to being able to write characters with my finger. Another app, Skritter, is based on writing with your finger as well, but requires a $15/month subscription (they offer yearly plans for less, but they’re still quite expensive). I’ve used Skritter before and it has some nice UI polish, but TOFU, even being free, has Skritter’s core functionality plus extra features, such as quick dictionary lookup to get comprehensive info on the character and the ability to add images for visual mnemonics. Importantly, importing Anki decks into TOFU is a breeze (Skritter doesn’t offer a simple way to do this). Even if Skritter were free, I’d prefer TOFU Learn.

Just what I wanted in a language study app/site!

I stumbled upon this site/app while searching for a WaniKani equivalent for traditional Chinese character studying and boy did it deliver! I’m very happy that it has traditional Chinese characters and also sets for studying other languages like Japanese and Spanish too! I think you can even make your own sets to study from, but so far I’ve just been using the user uploaded ones and they’ve done me well. Highly recommend for anyone looking for an SRS study system for multiple languages! :)

Addictive in a good way

Love this app. i stopped practicing written Chinese two years ago when my son was born. I'm always too busy or tired to study these days, but got Tofu a couple weeks ago and it has turned practice into something fun i can do on the go. Finally getting back into hsk5 again thanks to tofu.
