“I came across Dr. Moku's Hiragana Mnemonics. Thirty minutes later I had memorized all 46 hiragana. - Mark Frauenfelder founder of BoingBoing.net

Mnemonics are memory tricks that use humor or a memorable personal connection to help you fix and break associations so your brain has no choice but to remember.
Each screen presents a Hiragana character along with a mnemonic clue and audio clip. Read the clue, listen to the clip and move on to the next one. The alternating bold colors will 'reset' your brain so you start fresh with each symbol, allowing you to learn auto-magically.
Learning Japanese may seem like an impossible task but with Dr. Moku you will be amazed at your ability to learn and recall.
**This Free version contains all above features but has a limited number of Hiragana screens, the full version covers the entire syllabary **
What's New in Version 2.1
- Fixed a glitch in AutoPlay mode
It was really helpful. I memorized all the ones they gave us in 10 mins! It's enjoyable too! I think it will be worth it when I buy the real one. If you are reading this to decide whether to get it or not, I think it's worth a try!
I tried this app to see if I wanted to buy the full version for Hiragana, and then eventually Katakana. I am VERY impressed! The visuals stick, and after a few rounds of practice you learn 25% of Hiragana! Off to buy the full version!
Can't get anywhere free
It only lets u study a quarter of the letters for free, not worth the time to download unless you are looking to pay
