Is it good?

The Chairman's Bao Ltd. has put efforts and engineered a sophisticated chinese app. What makes it successful? It is very easy to use for such a solid education app with built-in mandarin features. Well, as a top-performing app with an overall rating of 4.46 I can only add what people who have tried it are saying.

This app is amazing! Yes, there are small bugs that need to be fixed and it needs to have auto repeat(which it doesn’t have currently). Also sometimes there is problems with the subscription system , which sometimes will not allow access to content right away(when you first start your subscription) Even with some small annoying bugs , the app is hands down the best study tool on the market! And completely worth the subscription cost! If you are serious about learning Chinese , your money is best spent here! New content is added constantly, sometimes I’ll finish a lesson and then find that new articles have just been posted! The ability to filter by HSK level is genius. It helps you maintain that all important “flow” , so that the articles are not too hard or too easy- this “sweet spot” will help you improve very quickly. This app best pairs with formal study of the language and is not really for absolute beginners. If you are looking for some phrases to say while traveling in China - this is not the app for you. The articles are from real current Chinese news and blog posts and such -rewritten to match hsk level. Plus the app includes blog posts written in English that will help “fill in the gaps” on your knowledge of culture and society. The learning tools are great and easy to use, each article includes a vocabulary quiz and several learning activities! Customer service is very fast!
I’ve been studying Mandarin for 4 years, I’ve bought all the books and downloaded all the apps, and this one is by far the best. It makes learning Mandarin fun because I feel like I’m doing what I’ve always wanted to do, which is read a Chinese newspaper! You can highlight words you don’t know and it’ll translate it, they even have an audio recording of how it’s supposed to sound. This app is the best.
