“If I could only keep one app on my iPod, this would be it without a doubt. Skritter will change your life!”
― Wendy Werneth, UN Translator, Switzerland
“Learning to write Chinese characters has never been so fun. From writing zero to 2000+ characters in six months!”
― Brian Jackson, Economist, Alaska
“An absolutely amazing app. While it’s gorgeous (never had this much fun using an iPhone until now), it also makes me want to actually study whenever I have downtime.”
― Greg Bell, Master’s Student, Taiwan
“It has completely changed how I study. You won't find me cooped up inside anymore. You'll find me at the wetlands surrounding the city, using my iPod to Skritter and chatting with the people strolling on the path. Or I'll be at the local dumpling joint, the owner's kids grabbing my iPod to play with the app and "teach" me how to write correctly.”
― Alex Louis, Volunteer, China

Skritter is the best App on iOS
From web app to beta to launch this App has been my one stop Chinese study shop. I'll never forget how to write a single character again! I went from being embarrassed about how few characters I could write to knowing almost 4000 in less than a year, and I couldn't have done it without Skritter. This is the perfect tool for the Chinese student in all of us. Check out the app and see how everyone should be learning to write Chinese.
The most remarkable thing about this app is that all the reviews were written by one person. At first it was weird to realize that the first couple were by the same "user", then it became puzzling, and finally I found it pretty hilarious and I gave up reading the reviews at all because they were useless, being a collection of writing by either the developer or his/her cousin. If the reviews hadn't been so obviously fake, I might have actually tried the app, but as it is, I only downloaded it in order to point out to prospective users that these reviews are worthless, and this probably means that the app is as empty as the fictional characters who wrote these reviews. Try letting the app sell itself on merit!
This app is good for learning traditional Chinese. Hard to find apps for traditional Chinese as many apps only teach simple Chinese. Good for practicing character strokes and there are many leasons. I hope the rate of learning isn't too fast. The app will be useful for those who gave a basis of a little Chinese.
Unfortunately the description says it's a paid app. Better if you can buy the lessons individually instead.
