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.
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.
This is a great app to learn the proper placement of Chinese characters in a square grid, and it offers different style to choose from.
Some characters has more styles than others.
I also like the draw where I can practice the placement.
This is not the app to practice brush calligraphy, unless the app can sense the pressure of our finger as a brush.
It only allows searching one character at a time. It would be good to search multiple characters, like for a complete sentence, to save time.
