This is a really effective learning tool, though a few of the images could be revised to better represent the sound they're supposed to remind you of. I would also have liked the option to start making the quizzes longer once you are including more of the characters in the quiz.

This app is awesome! I've used dozens of these kinds of apps trying to memorize this stuff, but they're usually just very dry flash cards. This is still basically just flash cards, but it's really well designed and organized. The little pictures make it way easier to remember and it gives you a reminder of the answer if you guess wrong, which is something that's strangely hard to find.

It's very good! It capitalizes on the power of mnemonics, and it does so for free! However, I think some of the images could be changed to represent a sound that is closer to the pronunciation of the word. Also, the layering of a letter and an image sometimes seem too distorted to make for a good mnemonic. I think the images should be reviewed, but otherwise, it's a great app, and I'd highly recommend it!
