There are no clear instructions. No obvious method for choosing either the correct hiragana sound or English definition for a displayed Kanji character, or to write the correct Kanji for either the English word or Hiragana spelling. You choose the card deck based on lesson number from the books. Then, start the deck. It shows the English meaning, the hiragana spelling, and a blank where the Kanji will go. You tap on the blank, and the Kanji appears. How does this help learn Kanji? How is this a "flash card"? If I want to just see Kanji characters, their meaning, and pronunciation, I can look in the Genki textbooks. A flash card app is supposed to give the student a way to input an answer - either the sound or definition of a Kanji, or the Kanji for a sound and/or definition. This app seems to offer neither. Or, if it does, does not make it clear how to do this.
Convenient, helpful, easy Awesome app. I've used all of the Genki apps for iPhone and have been waiting for them all to be released for Android, so I'm just waiting for the conjugation app. I used to use these on the subway on my way to and from class and they helped so much. There are some free flash card apps out there if you can't afford these, but I'd definitely recommend spending the money for these as the quality and convenience of a companion app that goes with your textbook is worth it.
This app is very helpful to me as I am a student using the Genki 2 textbook currently. This assures I'm learning the kanji that I need for school, rather than other kanji not relevant to me at this time. My only complaint is that I can't hide the English words in Reading mode, and I know that sometimes I am just translating the word instead of actually remembering the kanji reading. I would love to have a mechanism to hide/unhide the English word, the same way you can hide/unhide the hiragana reading. I do love being able to flip the card over and see different readings ad well as the stroke order and mnemonic pictures though :) I definitely will continue to use this app, but I hope to see it update in the future
Very useful If you don't remember the stroke order or need to look back at the previous kanjis in the genki chapter, this app is the app for you. quickest access.
Reading and drawing options for "man" (ten thousand) from set 3 is not working. Causes app to crash.
Very bad value for the money. The app doesn't do much and is expensive.
