Great for daily drills Ignore the last user. They are the lazy ones not seeing that one section is for writing romaji and another is for the actual kana, plus wo and wa is not missing. I recommend this app for people who already a basic grasp at kana. This app helps your brain to recognize them faster which is essential for building better reading comprehension.
Writing is way too sensitive I completed the hiragana counterpart of this app and I really liked it. This app is great as well except for the writing test. It is WAY too sensitive. I can't even write a character that is shown and for some reason it just skips entire lines and assumes you did it correctly. Really strange. The hiragana app's written tests work fine. I can film it if requested as trouble shooting feedback.
Most Helpful Review App Contrary to how the unpopular reviews say it assumes you already know the characters, what the app does is introduce you to a small set of characters until you decide you are full comfortable with them, and then u may select others. You learn by repetition: seeing the characters, or writing them in romanji. Always been my favorite app :)
Wonderful! Not only does this app do a good job of teaching the kana, it also teaches stroke order which is something my Japanese teacher hasn't focused much on. My only complaint is the lack of a mute option.
Overall great The exercises I feel are very effective, and are simple to answer because of the great clarity in design. I'd like to point out, however, that for the exercise of "Choose the katakana", under the "Vowels, k & s", ソ does not ever come up; and if it does, not frequently enough. In the other two exercises, it seems to show up just fine.
Tsu, Du, and Zu On the Hiragana version of the app, it tells me that tsu with a double-slash (ten-ten) is pronounced "du." In the Katakana version, it tells me that tsu with a ten-ten is pronounced "zu." Can you please just make up your mind, because that isn't helping me learn. Other than that mishap, the app is fun and does help improve my kana remembering skills. Thank you!
