Customer Reviews

Beautiful- extremely helpful.

Overall, this app is amazing. It helps you with stroke order, how to pronounce things, and it even gives out kanji! However, there are a few things I would like to point out.

First off, many people talk about this, and I will as well; the "shuffled" mode on flashcards is not very... Well, shuffled.
Also, if there could be an explanation for the kunyomi and onyomi for kanji, it is confusing with the many ways of saying one word or phrase. If there could be an help menu for that, that explains that whole section would be great.

iOS 8 compatibility update

I have what I hope is a small request. I recently downloaded the "Japanese Alphabet" app and was impressed and thrurowly enjoying it, that is until the iOS 8 Update. Ever since Apple released it the flash cards have not been working, the app freezes everytime I try to use that function. I have tried deleting and reinstalling the app, I tried a hard reboot of the phone and restoring my iPhone 5s and still the same problem. So my request is for an iOS 8 comparability update, thanks.

not random

Please add a 100% random option to flash cards.. I don't care about the srs, I only use this for overall review. For a paid app we should have more control. I only want to see the missed cards at the end...

The apps still worth it as a reference and the example compounds for kanji are great. And it's nice to have the kanji in sorted groups.

It would be even nicer if there was a flash card option for ALL kanji... and maybe only test 25-50 at a time. AND RANDOM
