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.
Fixed compatibility issues for iOS 9 and improved performance.
Ratings and Reviews
Useful for someones who want to learn Chinese language, like me. Very appreciate who provide this apps.
I cannot believe this is free!!
Omg I love how they provided this quality education at cost free unlike those other money greedy companies out there that charges you and still you learn very little at the end. In fact this app is better than majority of the paid apps out there for learning Chinese.
Although there is one better app out there for writing Chinese in terms of fun, this app beats that one not from the fun engagement factor but from the learning factor, this app basically has everything you need to learn the Chinese language except sentence / grammar structure and only has 1500 words, if this app had 3000 character you basically learn the to be proficient in Chinese assuming you know how to build sentences with the words and phases you learn from this app. Really hope they update it to 3000 characters soon. For now 1500 words will get me to start simple conversations with Chinese people.
Easy to use
Very nice organization and easy to use app althoigh it would help if there'swas a quick guide to exactly what all the buttons do without having to press them first. The graphics are easy on the eyea and the stroke order easy to follow. Speaking as a heritage speaker, their audio and translation/word info is very accurate as well. Like it a lot:). Would be nice to have the option of hiding the meaning so i quiz on that too
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
