Great! I've tried a lot of different methods for learning hiragana, but this has been the easiest so far. The only thing keeping it from 5 stars is some hiragana characters seem to be missing from the "write in romanji" section. Also when you exit the app in the middle of the write in section, the on screen keyboard stays up on the screen.
Good concept The writing activity is a great idea and the voices provide good reinforcement. The writing is quite fussy, though - a perfect character written a quarter inch right/left of what's expected is marked incorrect, which makes it hard to progress even when you know your stuff.
Great App This is a great app but I could only give it 4 stars because thete is no learning page. Every page starts with a test and takes for granted you already know the correct answer. You can and will learn this way but not as effectively, or quickly.
Excellent Love it! Quizes you by making you choose the hiragana that matches the sound from four "flash card" like characters. Then you have the option to type the romaji for the shown hiragana. Finally let's you practice drawing the hiragana, first starting with the character shown, then removing the lines but leaving the starting and ending points as a hint, then leaves only the starting points, and finally removes even that. Through somewhat forced practice you learn it and practice it until you get it right.
this is actually really good !! it helped me learn hiragana pretty easily, even though i messed up a couple times :)
Learning? It feels like a test before the lesson. Am I just supposed to guess the right one? People who don't know hiragana do NOT use this.
-Corrected the hiragana "mo" and "ya", and replaced the "ki" and "sa" with the handwritten versions
