Characters fall from the top of the screen - you have to tap them and draw them correctly to score points. Just don't let them reach the bottom, or - kaboom! Let five of them drop and the game is finished! But the learning continues; you can review everything that you saw, complete with stroke order diagrams and testing at your own pace. Characters you made the most mistakes on are highlighted at the top of the list.

✓ trainchinese Chinese Writer can test you on 5,300 Simplified and Traditional Chinese characters, and features stroke-order diagrams, English explanations and high quality audio recordings for every possible pronunciation of each one.

    Scrolling text is frustrating. Prefer a static definition with smaller text if necessary. Can it be a default option?

    It would be nice if the app was better integrated with the other apps. Still great!

    Some syllables are not pronounced (like lv ) and sometimes there are just black squares instead of characters.

    Please fix the bug when browsing for characters and typing in "guan". Whenever I do this the app exits.
