What's New?

A brand new info screen

Accelerate your learning with the brand new info screen. Font size has been increased to make things easier to read. We've improved the mnemonic and definition editing experience, and you can drill into contained characters within words to learn more about their composition, write custom mnemonics, and more!

Additionally, you can now easily submit corrections for any issues character/word-level issues you might find in the app so we can fix them for you and everyone else! 

See hints while you study

Drawing a blank on some of the cards? Hints can help! Now you can see example sentences and mnemonics directly from the study cards. Just swipe right or left on the top part of any card to display these hints. In addition to showing you hints, we've also added a bunch of "popular mnemonics" that have been created by users in the Skritter community over the years. These should look familiar to anyone who's used the Skritter Chinese/ Skritter Japanese iOS apps, but these are brand new to Android!

The mnemonics that gets displayed will depend on what card you're on. When studying writing or tone cards (Chinese only) we'll show you the character-level mnemonic, and on definition and reading cards you'll see the word-level mnemonic. Did you know? You can create your own personal mnemonics by going to the info panel and tapping the edit pencil on the top-right of the screen!

Challenge yourself with a new writing mode

Looking for the ultimate challenge? Check out "rawest squigs" for a pen & paper writing experience. This writing mode has no hints and no automatic grading. Once you're done writing your character you can check your answer and give yourself a grade. Perfect for preparing for classroom quizzes, or anyone looking to truly master Chinese/Japanese handwriting. Access "rawest squigs" from the Study Settings screen, or from the Quick Settings drawer from any activity. Good luck! 

Note: "Rawest Squigs" is a working title. If you have any ideas of what to call this new writing mode, please be sure to drop us an email at team@skritter.com!
