1000 Kanji Flash Cards for Japanese

By Dependency

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


This app has great customer reviews and it is for learning basic Japanese Kanji.

•includes cards for the first 440 Japanese kanji
•learn an English meaning for each kanji
•onyomi and kunyomi readings for each kanji
•over 1500 keywords which use only these kanji
•more than 2000 cards all together
•users may choose which individual cards make up each deck

•get a card right and it's taken out, get it wrong and it's shuffled back in
•add cards 10 at a time as you work through the whole pack (in-app purchase)
•swipe for the next card
•swipe down if you get the card wrong (to shuffle it back in)
•go back if you need to recheck a card

Only the 1st Year decks (80 kanji and over 200 keyword cards) are free. 2nd and 3rd Year decks require an In-App purchase to drill. (But you can look at them to see what is included).

There is also an in-app purchase option which lets you just drill the last 10 cards of your deck - so you can learn those before adding them into the rest of your deck.
The same in-app purchase enables the "Just the Card" feature. If you rotate your device to landscape during a drill the card will resize to fill the screen. So it feels much more like you're doing a drill with a deck of flashcards in your hand.

Regular practice and review is the only way to build your kanji knowledge.

What's New in Version 1.9

In the previous version, to drill the "All" decks you had to purchase both the 2nd and 3rd year decks first.
We changed this so the "All" deck includes the free decks plus any which you have purchased.

Customer Reviews

Purchase items

At first I wasn't too impressed but as I continued my use, I think that interface is really smooth. The only thing that bugs me is that there isn't a 'purchase all' option. Perhaps change the "buy us coffee" to "please donate".

Could be improved

I downloaded this app hoping it would help me learn/remember/understand kanji a bit better. The problem with kanji is that reading them alone with English translations alone does not do this. For example 日 (nichi) means day but you can also use it for 日本 (Nippon) which means Japan or 日曜 (nichiyoubi) weekday. So it would be more helpful if they can include on-yomi and kun-yomi readings of kanji rather than just English definitions.

Shows promise, but needs Japanese pronunciation

The app description says that onyomi and kunyomi readings are provided, but they are not, and I don't see a way to turn them on.
