Customer Reviews

Use It All The Time

Although I admit this app is a bit confusing at first, after you learn to use it you will never need another kana study aid. I am getting back into the swing of things after not studying Japanese for years and I was able to relearn Hiragana in a couple days with this app and I am picking up Katakana very quickly.

Best app!

Tip: swipe at the top to see Settings button that contains Help with directions. Intuitive with beautiful, clean, crisp interface. Excellent aid to the study of the Japanese language. Look no further. Highly recommended.

Great study method

Minimalist app that's really useful if you are just starting out with Japanese. Helped me to memorize hiragana. Three modes so you can also study quickly w/o having to type to advance.
