Word Tracer - Learn Chinese iPhone Edition
By Nanaimo Studio
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Word Tracer - Learn Chinese is an iPhone app that is designed for people who wish to learn to write Chinese characters properly through tracing and feedback provided through the device. Writing Chinese is one of the most challenging aspects of the language; this tool provides an effective means to facilitate learning by letting the users practice 1500 commonly used Chinese characters (Practice Mode) and testing themselves (Test Mode). Common phrases are also provided to allow the learner to see how the word is used in context. The app is developed using a game engine and meticulously designed to provide the best user experience and performance. Every character comes with pinyin (with actual voice recording), English meaning and common usages.

NOTE: Simplified Chinese (used in mainland China) is supported. Traditional Chinese (used in HK and Taiwan) is not supported. We think there is value in learning both. Since Traditional Chinese is more complicated for people starting out learning Chinese, it is a good idea to tackle that after you have mastered Simplified Chinese.
What's New in Version 1.4
Fix a crash bug in iOS 6 caused by orientation.
I saw this app on my friend's ipad and downloaded it myself. I have been looking for something like this. It is excellent to use to practice writing Chinese and it also has translation which helps expand the Chinese vocabulary. Highly recommend it!
Good Promise but unstable
The idea is good. But the app needs much more polish. Crashes quite a bit currently.
