Soo close to Being great!

First- it’s worth the $20 if you are serious about learning the characters. The random and repetitious game style that carries you progressively through the HSK levels is a welcomed change of pace to normal flash card systems. However there is room for improvement.

1)When you get a character wrong, it blocks it out for you. It would be better to maybe fade it out instead but leave the character visible so you can reflect/compare your mistake with the correct choice. <simple fix>

2) If it would give you the choice to recycle through the ones you have missed at the end of each block, that would be great!

3)To have an option where you can touch each character after you have been graded and see a detailed definition of that specific character/radical would probably be the last piece of the puzzle to make this a 5 Star app.



Great app! Just the right combination of fun and well timed recognition tools. Definitely a step ahead of the market. Quick suggestion - add character voice and stroke sketching features and this app will become even better and sell like hot cross buns!!!



I like this app to go along with my other Chinese studies. It could be better if there were a limit to how many wrong answers you could get before you just miss that one, and it tells you the right answer.
