This month celebrates Mountain Day in Japan (山の日), Father's day in Taiwan (8/8 which sounds like bàba), and at the end of the month, Ghost Festival (中元节).
In other news, our Stripe billing migration is live on the website and although we’ll continue to monitor things this month, we’re ready to start working on app updates once again!
Expect a patch update for the mobile apps soon, followed by our 3.5.0 update which will introduce our first in-app course! We’re super excited to roll this update out as soon as we can.
Speaking of courses, we’re looking for early beginners of Chinese character learning to take part in a small pilot program we’re working on. Check out the details on the Skritter forum.
This month we’ll also be kicking off the long-awaited progress-screen update on the new mobile apps. Lots of API work needs to happen before changes make their way to the progress screen, but it's going to be an amazing improvement when the project is done!
Finally, at the end of July, we also wrapped up some long-standing improvements to the Skritter Classroom client. Learn more about the changes on our blog.
If you’re interested in using Skritter at your program, be sure to have a teacher or administrator apply for a one-month institutional trial! Apply today.
We hope you all have a safe and productive August!
