[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - OnDemandWorld is proud to announce the launch of a brand new app, Write Chinese Characters for iOS. This app forms an important part of the company's range of Chinese learning apps and enables students to perfect their written Chinese characters.
The app works by guiding users through the correct way to write Chinese characters, step-by-step. Then the user is invited to replicate what they have been shown by using their finger or a stylus to reproduce the appropriate characters on the screen.
An important feature is the ability to switch the application into quiz mode, which enables the student to then receive a rating for accurately they have managed to replicate the Chinese characters they have been shown. With over 750,000 people using its Chinese learning apps, Terence Lau, the app producer is confident Write Chinese Characters will find quickly a receptive fan-base.
Chinese characters are among the most complex in the world. Learning to write them is a challenge for almost any language student. However, with the regular cycle of guidance and feedback that our app enables, people can make much quicker progress in perfecting their written form.
As students improve their skills, they can look back on a record of progress that is automatically created as they continue to use the app. This makes it easy for them to share progress with a tutor and also to identify areas where they need to make consistent improvements.
Lau went on to set out the philosophy behind the application saying, "We believe in apps that are simple to use - but which serve a very practical purpose. In this case we have focused on producing an app that allows people to work on their Chinese literacy skills whenever they have a spare moment. In general, this is a key asset of the iPhone as a learning device - the user is never without the means to practice, whether they be in a classroom or a supermarket queue, their smart device and this app enables them to make good use of that time. We are very proud of the app and look forward to see how our users may engage with it."
