Ratings and Reviews
So many examples of calligraphy styles for each character. I use this app to help improve my Chinese penmanship, and it's incredibly helpful.
I also like how the name of each calligrapher is listed below their respective examples, allowing users to go online elsewhere to find more in-context samples of their calligraphy styles.
For both Chinese and English speaking user to learn Chinese Calligraphy this is one of the best app I have encountered.
I am impressed the amount of data they collected and the fact that you can search in English is very thoughtful.
Yunzhang is an incredible, comprehensive and free app. It is easy to use, and allows Western calligraphers to find images (in 5 different scripts), for words they would like to brush. It has quickly become one of my favorite apps.
