I won't be updating!

I had updated the developers Kana LS app and the new interface is ugly and awkward. I was hoping he'd leave the kanji version alone. I will NOT be updating.

The original version is elegant, attractive and easy to use. If it ain't broke, don't fix it!!!

Best of all the kanji apps so far.

Ok so needs some work on setting up which kanjis to learn. Being able to divede the joyo kanji into whatever size groups the user would like would really help. The background needs to be user set to whatever color I really hate the black orange. Its almost insulting. Also there is not one app that just does the 212 radicals only grouping the kanjis by radicals would be useful knowing all the radicals should come first.

I been using this app for about one year now and it's great. This app saved me a lot of money from buying kanji textbooks.
