Chinese sign reading trainer

I really want to make an iPhone app for practicing the writing of chinese signs, but programming the hand writing on the screen is a wee bit complicated, so I have opted for starting with a sign reading trainer. You get one chinese sign at a time (the most common first), and three possible pinyin transcriptions to choose from. The signs alternate, and if you read a sign correctly several times, you will see it less and less often. The program is modeled very much on the german noun trainer. I have not given up on making a sign writing trainer. This is really more needed, I think, since it is much more challenging to learn to write the signs than to read them. Stay tuned!

    Hi Frank,

    Thank you for your comment. I worry about making the program more complicated to use, but I will consider your idea for a coming version. It should bed doable

    Best regards, Christian
