I'm Justin. I've lived in Japan since 2002 and I'm married to my Japanese wife (lovingly called "Spellchecker"). I've taken the JLPT tests up to L1 and I'm still going. I speak, read and write Japanese fluently and I'm an overactive developer who really should relax a little more.
What's New in Version 3.71
- iOS9 changes.
- Minor fixes.
Nice app except for the flash card randomisation
This is a nice app: very useful for learning, remembering and practising stroke order of Kana.
However, I think the flash card randomisation could be improved. For a relatively small set of characters that needs repeated re-learning, the app presents the flash cards in a consistent (and thus, predictable) order. This means that the learner could remember the order instead of the character to get it right the next time. This is despite the fact that I have chosen Auto Randomisation in the settings.
Unless this is expected from the SRS algorithm, the character picked from the set should be chosen with a call to arc4random_uniform with the current set size as the upper bound.
Nonetheless, overall, a very useful app.
