Tone color coding

I would like an option to display Characters in colors according to what tone they are except when tones are being hidden for test or review reasons. Best case would be user selectable colors with Pleco colors defaulted. I’d be ok with just Pleco colors. This feature should have an on off toggle as well for people that don’t want colors.

For some people the colors stick a lot better than the tone marks.

Agree with the usefulness of tone colors. All this was abailable in the Web 1.0 version (legacyskritter.com) but did not persist into any subsequent platform. This, and the larger font size, is why I still use the legacy version sometimes. Unfortunately the sample sentence audio function does not work any more there, so I also use the current web version too.

The Pleco integration works in the legacy app so you can go to info and click on Pleco and get the sound and sample sentences that way. It’s clunky but serviceable

Pleco is supported in all our mobile apps, but that isn’t super helpful for those that find tone colors useful while studying on Skritter. Adding tone color support into the new mobile apps as a toggle option is totally doable. Adding it to the feature list now!
