Not A Bad App But False Apple Watch Support


I’m a connoisseur of Chinese language programs targeted for foreigners learning Mandarin. This app is not bad and it offers Traditional Chinese character support (not always present in Chinese language software.)

Big Issue: where is your Apple Watch App? You previously had it but it disappeared some months ago. You advertised this compatibility when I purchased your app and you still advertise Apple Watch support now. What’s going on? A Chinese language app with Apple Watch support is unique. Claiming such compatibility and not providing it is false advertising.

Super learning app!!


I can't say enough good about this app! It makes learning easy and lets you choose how much you want to learn at your speed. The fact it slows down the words so you can get the correct pronunciation is awesome!! You can search for words also. To learn more isn't too bad of a cost either, very reasonable!! If I had more hands I would give this app more than two thumbs up!! Excellent app!!

Fantastic App Series

If your looking for a full formal language course or reference, this isn't it. If you're looking for a fun progressive introduction to rote learning basic phrases, polite noises, and essential words, I haven't seen any better apps than this. It's customizable to your pace and learning style, and - most important to any language learning - it challenges you daily.
