Medium snapshot

Skritter is a piece of software (for your phone or computer) that allows you to practise writing Chinese characters by hand and offers you feedback on your writing (using a touch screen or writing tablet). Skritter is also a spaced repetition software, which means that it will give you the words you need with carefully calculated intervals to maximise your learning efficiency. Unlike any other software I know, Skritter is (mostly) able to tell you if you’re correct or not and will guide you through the standard stroke order and character composition if you forget how to write a character.
