Fantastic little app

(Updated) Exactly what I was looking for to practice writing characters. The best on the App Store for that purpose. I love that it has 3 font choices so you can see what variants of the characters look like. The aesthetics are also nice, clean, and relaxing.

Thank you for adding the features I requested below! This is now an absolutely killer app and gets an unreserved 5 stars from me! :)

[What would really sell me would be the option to show or hide the background guide character so I could try writing without it and then see how close I got. It would also be nice to have an optional grid overlay.]

There are no audio files, but I already have other apps for that and was just looking for a way to practice writing.
