I can't say enough good things about this app. It's hands down the best kanji app I've ever tried! It has incredible depth of functionality. I'm still discovering cool mechanics it offers. And even the graphic design is nice! I love being able to track my progress, both in frequeny/duration of study, and a self-applied star rating for how familiar I am with the kanji. Each kanji has example words and sentences. The ability to add notes to flash cards has also really helped my self study. The developer is quick to respond to emails as well.10/10! Love it!
I have been a long practicioner of the Japanese language, but at university kanji was not supported enough in the latter part of my study with regular testing. I am a quite lazy person in some ways and I need regular testing to push me. This app does not test me after some time, but with the daily reminders it pushes me to do at least 10 minutes a day. That could be anything from studying to testing and being quite strict about it. If you want to study kanji even remotely and you're not a bookie like me, then this app is easily worth double the price.
I'm quite fond of this app. The testing options and stroke order guidance is unmatched in any other apps I've used. A recent update has prevented me from using the app however. None of the Kanji appear anymore.
I wanted to be able to have study cards allow me to control what displays on back. I can keep Romaji off (great) AND the Definition! I need to study readings, not meanings. I asked for that setting for flipping the cards in DRILL mode. Note: the app will be 40+ MB after install. Great app now. A fave on My desktop. And getting better with each release. Bravo !
Edit: I bought the full version. It's worth it. The app is very comprehensive, but to get the full use of it, you must be willing to tweak around a bit because there are a lot of hidden features. Pro tip: check out the settings and play around once you're less overwhelmed by the entirety of kanji that you have to learn.
Fantastic app, was hesitant to buy this over a book but it's so convenient and incredibly well done. I tried other free flash card apps but nothing compares to this.
