The “Pro” version of Dragon Scribe is released and ready for purchase from the App Store. This version adds “Native” difficulty level, which includes nearly 3,000 of the most common Chinese characters, complete with English translation for each. If you can master writing these, you’ll be proficient with 99% of the Chinese language, and Dragon Scribe Pro is a fun way to learn and practice.
If you’re interested in learning to write the Chinese language, this is the version you want! Check out screenshots here.

The free, “lite” version of Dragon Scribe is available for download from the App Store. This version only has the easiest difficulty, “Easy”, whereas the full version of Dragon Scribe has “Easy”, “Medium”, “Hard”, and “Expert”. Dragon Scribe Pro has all of these levels plus “Native” difficulty, which includes nearly 3,000 characters. All versions include English translation.
Sorry, I got lazy over the holidays and didn’t get ads in this version. Actually, I hate ads so that will probably never happen. But I have to pay rent like anyone else, so there is a popup suggesting you purchase the full Dragon Scribe that appears after playing the “lite” game 20 times. I’m not a big fan of nags, either, but this seemed like a decent compromise.
Anyhow, the Lite version is free and fun to play as a puzzle-matching game. It’ll also introduce you to the written Chinese language and to Dragon Scribe gameplay. Please tell your friends if you like it — you folks are, by far, my best advertisement — and consider dropping $.99 on the full version when you’re ready to step up to the challenge!

Dragon Scribe v1.1 is live and available on the App Store! It will, of course, also be pushed down auto-magically for all the v1.0 early-birds. This update has a few bug fixes and performance upgrades, blah blah blah… But the BEST thing about v1.1 is that it adds English translation! Just go into Settings and switch on “display English translations”. Now you’ll see the English translation every time you match a Chinese character. A lot of people have asked for this, and I can see why — it really adds a new dimension to the game. I really hope you like it, and I hope you tell your iPhone-having friends to download Dragon Scribe!
