This is a reading app that contains a number of lessons for beginner, intermediate and advanced students. Apart from the reading material, there is also recorded (not synthesised) audio. The app also has a built-in dictionary. The combination of these features makes it a valuable asset in your reading-practice arsenal. Of course, you could also use it for listening practice and read the text only after you have tried understanding the spoken audio.

Du Chinese is great. I have been using them for over a year at this point and I like that they are adding more multi-part stories, which allows for them to be more interesting but also repeated vocab. The quality of the older stories can very little bit, but their newer ones are getting better all the time. The audio quality that goes with each story can be a little on the rough side sometimes, but the readers themselves are phenomenal.
