    Great review. I have to agree with much of what is said here as when using Hack Chinese it is very motivating to see the stats and to actually feel the confidence of knowing the characters and the stats backing this up. From knowing a handful of characters I am making great progress finally in the daunting learning of characters.

      Hi Simon, glad you enjoyed the read and agreed with my points!

      It's increasingly boosting my confidence. Hoping to see perhaps a rolled out update with example sentences included as I think that'd be a great addition also.

      What other apps are you using Simon?

    I really like this as well. I have already tried out Ninchanese for a few years, but I'm just not motivated by it anymore (probably got too bored of the same look). Seeing stats might motivate me too. The price is the only thing that keeps me back. There's no real alternative to HackChinese, is there?

      Hi Renuren - thanks for the comment and your thoughts.

      Yes it is indeed motivating :)

      I've never found an app as solid as Hack Chinese. The fact I've been using is for over 6 months now and still use it everyday says a lot. There is a cost, but I think it's very much a worthwhile investment.

      Of course if we find further apps that have the same impact, you'll find it on our website sometime soon!

      Happy studying!

      Hi J, I do indeed. In fact (no word of a lie) I've missed just one day of study with Hack after over 200 days.

      I have screenshots to prove that also!!

    Thank you for this review. While Hack Chinese is great, I highly suggest you review TOFU Learn, which I think is so much better than Hack Chinese. It combines everything good about Hack Chinese, Skritter, and Anki into one. You can import Anki decks, it automatically links made card decks to Forvo for native pronunciation, it has FREE HANDWRITING, a dashboard for stats, ability to copy and paste from excel, spaced repetition, hard word review mode, and so so much more. Plus, while Hack Chinese is $12 a month, TOFU Learn is FREE! Please check it out. Thank you!

        "free" is not the only thing unfortunately... tofu learn is not an app i would personally be motivated using...
