Although I haven’t spent much time learning Chinese characters (I’m still relying on pinyin) I decided to install 5000 Chinese Audio Flashcards (also known as Flashcard Fu) on my iPhone 4. There are a couple of things I like about this little app.
First, it uses optimized learning. That just means that characters you have the most difficulty remembering are tested most often.
Second, Flashcard Fu has 5000 of the most frequently used characters. But the characters are divided into “decks” which means you can study the most important characters first, in bite-sized study intervals.
The 5000 Chinese Audio Flashcards app costs $2.99.
