What's New

Version 4.6.2

◉ Several annoying crashes have been fixed.
◉ Some of you guys asked for the original flashcard system, yeah, here you are! We added back a much cleaner one to word list and character list page.

As you know, we introduced a SMART review system recently. With it you can greatly decrease your time spent reviewing and, what's more important, achieve a better learning result. Two major benefits of the new review system:
1. Tracks your memory strength for each word/character and reminds you the items you’re just about to forget.
2. Generates exercises intelligently so you only practice the items that you need to review.
We saw obvious gains across the board since it's released. Users are using HelloChinese more. So I strongly suggest you give the new system a fair chance and see how it goes.
