Adjusting animation speed & Pencil stylus support


Would be the perfect app for practicing the stroke order of hiragana if it featured compatibility with the Apple Pencil stylus as well as settings for the speed of the animated strokes.

Truly Testing, Not Just Tracing

So far, this is the only app I’ve found that prompts you to write the character *before* it shows you the strokes. It prompts you with the romaji character (spoken aloud also, optionally) and a blank sheet. You write the character, then click to see how close you were to the proper form. The other “testing” apps I’ve seen are really just practice — they show you the strokes and you simply trace on top of them.

Okay but...

This is a really great app for learning and memorizing hiragana! I love that you can scroll right through the letters without having to back to the main page every time you change letters, and the combination of hearing the letter and writing it yourself helps you really learn without cheating!! BUT.. The biggest problem is they are missing half of the alphabet!!! Like "bu" and "ji" for example and many many more! For this reason I'm giving this app 2 stars!!
