Description

Radical - Simplified Chinese presents a whole new way of learning Chinese characters fast and effectively, while adjusting to your unique skills. Flashcards have been in use since at least 1834. Why is it that, with a handheld device as powerful as an iPhone, we're still using technology nearly 180 years old? Learning has advanced since the 19th century, and with Radical, we'll bring the advances to you. Specifically: 1. Radical tracks how quickly you learn, using a sophisticated cognitive model based on the world-renowned public research of Sebastian Leitner (the Leitner system), Piotr Wozniak (the researcher behind SuperMemo), and Paul Pimsleur (of the Pimsleur language learning system) to maximize your learning potential and minimize your memorization time. 2. You are the one who writes; we keep track of the bookkeeping for you. This is an app about doing - from day one, you are actively writing Chinese characters using the iPhone's recognizer, building in a leveled progression outlined by the government of the People's Republic of China (more than 2600 characters!). Kinesthetic learners and those who believe in learning-by-doing will rejoice by being intimately involved in the learning experience, not just flipping through a few cards. You will be able to SMS with 1.4 billion new people! 3. Radical has a number of stroke animations, showing you the rules and correct way to form characters. 4. Game-based learning lets you actively compete against how much Radical has tracked that you're ready for - providing a rest from a boring stack of cards you just "need to know". 5. Customize your learning experience by adding just the characters that are important to you - if you need to order a mocha, we've even added the pinyin to make typing it in easy. Learning a new writing system as challenging as Chinese is hard. Have a look at the screenshots and break the code of written Chinese today, wherever you are! New releases with better cognitive models, more animated strokes, and games will be included for free to current buyers in future 1.x upgrades.
