Really good! This application is great for people learning kanji for the first time that are fluent in kana, or for those wanting to extend their vocabulary/review it. My only problem is that there is a bit of a bug when you scroll down, if you let go when scrolling through the words for kanji it often goes to the next page/kanji. However already in a day I've learnt all the basic kanji. - from a GCSE Japanese student who received an A in speaking
Good pacing Each stage builds on the one before, and reinforces skills. It would be nice to have to option of romanji, but it's good kana practice, so I suppose I'll just have to knuckle down to mastering kana first. One problem - some of the review text is too small for me to read. Please support zooming in the next upgrade.
I've learnt more Kanji from this app than any other! Thank you for creating an app I will always be able to come back to when I want to explore some new Kanji. The design is a little old fashioned but it's still no problem to learn with. I like it a lot and would recommend it to anyone who's progressed past katakana and wants to read more Japanese. Currently though there is a bug in the quiz JLPT 3 Group 1 Sub Group 9 that causes the app to freeze on a white screen. Not a big problem but is worth a fix I think!
Excellent, well thought out! Unlike some kanji apps this one provides indepth explanations and tips in narrative form, in addition to all the other bells and whistles like kanji animation, radicals, quizs and vocab. It builds on your knowledge smoothly. The radicals explanation Is particularly helpful. I would rate it one of the best for learners and refreshing. Thank you!
Never Initializes Used Kana on my Nexus 7 and it was fantastic, so I decided to buy Kanji to use on my brand new NVIDIA Shield (2015). But neither app finishes initializing. Whenever I start up either of them, the "Initializing application..." prompt comes up, disappears and then sends me to a blank page. I would love to get these working on my new tablet.
Has its flaws but still useful There are a few obvious mistakes, e.g. 最後 does not read さいしょう, and most of the subgroups 9 in the JLPT quizzes don't work. Looks like a bug. There are also a lot of cases where the meaning of the kanji isn't the same as that of the kun yomi word, so it would have been nice to have a test based on it too.
