Measure Cards

Measure Cards


I wanted to build a simple iOS app to learn about iOS development, and build something that I felt would be useful to me when I was learning Chinese. Chinese measure words seemed like a great place to start, and with that this app was born!

Measure Cards is a simple iOS app that organizes Chinese measure words into nine high level categories. There are examples and example sentences for each measure word, tone colors for each, and options for phonetic system and character set.
