"This is the best app I've found for studying Chinese hanzi with flash cards"
"If you want to study hanzi for the HSK, this is the app to get. Not to complex so you dont spend all your time trying to get it to work, but just enough depth so it does what you want it to. The app just gets out of the way, so you can focus on your studies. I have Flashcards Deluxe, but this is the one I keep coming back to!"

◆ Beautiful "Map" Interface
Your entire vocabulary is shown as one large map that you can freely scroll and zoom around in. Depending on your progress, each sticky is assigned a colour from red to green.
All the hanzi and vocabulary data required for the *new* HSK test (1-6) and TOCFL (aka TOP) tests are included. Freely mix and create your own decks with any content. Switch between simplified and traditional characters.
◆ Leitner Study Method + Calendar = Awesome
Just set a future date and let the scheduler tell you when and what to study, everyday.
In total, close to 10,000 audio pronunciation files (around 90% of all entries) by native speakers are included (Thanks to Shi Ying & Ermes Toninelli).
Includes a database of example sentences (traditional and simple characters) that are cross referenced with every sticky. Where available, example compounds are also displayed.

Ratings and Reviews
178 memorized in 5 hours
I don’t know if that’s fast or slow. But after struggling for years with Chinese, this level of success has me excited. Only 5 hours throughout 1 week on this app, I learned 178 Chinese Hanzi. On to HSK2. Compared to other flash card apps, this deserves 5 stars.
However, I did spend a lot of time flipping back and forth between StickyStudy and Pleco. For me, understanding which RADICALS compose the particular Hanzi character is huge! After I viewed some flash cards 14x and still couldn’t remember, I figured out to use Pleco to lookup the character’s radicals. Radicals tell the story, remember the story, and retention skyrockets. Radicals also often provide some hint as to pronunciation.
If StickyStudy included the individual radicals (+radical pinyin and definition) with each card...wow! I could fly twice as fast.
I absolutely love this app. It is an indispensable tool for me. It's one of the few SRS apps I've tried that really "gets it". Nice, simple, customizable SRS algorithm, lots of configuration options but not too many. the interface is professional and simple. The fact that you can edit the cards and create custom decks is also very useful. The developer did a great job! I was really disappointed when they discontinued the standalone version of StickyStudy since I’ve been using that for other languages such as Vietnamese - and my Chinese friends use it to learn English. So please bring it back. :-)
Best flash card app for Chinese hands down
This app is exceptional. It comes with cards for HSK L1-L6 and TOCFL L1-L4. If you’re a beginner and don’t know what that means, the TAOCFL set is 11,000+ cards. The cards are rendered in a bright, clean format, and each card has sound.
Even more amazing was how easily I could create my own card decks. If you do this yourself, note that the sounds are linked to the Pinyin number section and not the Pinyin tone section of the card.
Thank you to the developer for creating such an amazing app!
