Writing Apps Wanted

17 Jun 2011

I’m getting ready to do a review of iPad apps that teach writing Chinese characters. I’ve got a few to review already, but I’m very open to additional suggestions. It’s hard to find everything in the App Store.

If you’re a developer with a paid app that teaches Chinese writing, your chances of getting reviewed are much higher if you email me a promo code. 🙂

Have a good weekend!

June 24th UPDATE: Thank you for the replies I’ve gotten by comments and by email. This week has been busy, but the post will come out next week.

    the game from trainchinese is also good, unfortunately pleco has limitation, and skritter has been not released yet.
    On pc there is the marvelous free open-source app called pingrid:

    Please write me if you discover other apps since I am really interested in them.

  3. Looking forward to your “results” John, I have an iPhone here and the school district I work for is going to distribute free iPads to all teachers this fall…and I really need writing apps so I can stop wasting so much time that could have been used to practice writing hanzi.
