“If I could only keep one app on my iPod, this would be it without a doubt. Skritter will change your life!”
― Wendy Werneth, UN Translator, Switzerland

“Learning to write Chinese characters has never been so fun. From writing zero to 2000+ characters in six months!”
― Brian Jackson, Economist, Alaska

“An absolutely amazing app. While it’s gorgeous (never had this much fun using an iPhone until now), it also makes me want to actually study whenever I have downtime.”
― Greg Bell, Master’s Student, Taiwan

“It has completely changed how I study. You won't find me cooped up inside anymore. You'll find me at the wetlands surrounding the city, using my iPod to Skritter and chatting with the people strolling on the path. Or I'll be at the local dumpling joint, the owner's kids grabbing my iPod to play with the app and "teach" me how to write correctly.”
― Alex Louis, Volunteer, China
