Looks like from the forum and my own experience that Skritter has been a really messed up and a broken program for many since moving to 1.0 to 2.0. I read some of the stuff on Riddit about Skritter and share the same concerns and experiences.
I played around with the open source Skritter cousin called Inkstone and for what it does–it actually works circles around Skritter. I believe that’s only one person doing the work on it, while Skritter has a team.
On Riddit–the person from Skritter said that they were listening, but listening and doing is totally the opposite thing.
With that said, I have appreciated Skritter and have learned using it even with the problems and having to use legacy most of the time. I honestly don’t think Skritter is better than pencil and paper, but the tools make it a worthy investment and I’m sure we can all agree on that.
I hope that you guys can get this app out of beta and make it a tool for efficient and possible faster Chinese learning. But in a small community as the Chinese learning community–word of mouth is spread quickly…good or bad and Skritter isn’t doing to good these days and it’s from the end user experiences, which are creating a lot of frustrations instead of steady learning.
