JLPT Study FREE, Kanji and Vocabulary Japanese Proficiency Level N5
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
This if the FREE version of JLPT Study, Level 1-5 Japanese Language Proficiency, containing all of level N5 Kanji (103) and all the roughly 650 words in the level N5 list.
This application will help you study the vocabulary for the Japanese Language Proficiency Tests (JLPT).
The JLPT (日本語能力試験 nihongo nōryoku shiken) is a standardized test for evaluating the Japanese language proficiency for non-japanese.
The study mode is based on interval as this will effectively reinforce your long term memory of the words.
The interval study will increase the time until next study for a word for each time the word is marked as known. If a word is not known, its score will be reduced and you will have to study it more often until its score has been restored. This makes you focus on words not yet memorized.
As each level contains quite a lot of words, the study set (number of words) can be limited. From the selected set, only the words valid for study (according to the chosen study mode) can be studied. Add more words if the number of due words is zero but you still want to move on.
Each time you start a new study, the selected words will be randomized. After the study session is over, you will see how many words you knew and also where you are in your goal to complete the level.
* Interval study
* Full set of compounds for each kanji
* Set study order to English, Japanese or random
* Customize study speed
* Include Kanji in Vocab when possible
* Include Romaji in Vocab when possible
* Focus study on Kanji / Hiragana connection in Vocab
* Quick review (scroll list)
If you do not yet know furigana (hiragana and katakana), make sure to learn it. Very important for studying Japanese. However, until you have mastered furigana there is an option to display romanji spelling.
Remember, even if your goal is not to pass the JLPT, you still can learn tons of new Japanese words to use in your everyday life.
Have fun and keep studying.

Simple, easy to use
I'm currently studying in Japan for a year as an exchange student. I mostly downloaded this app as a supplement to my other studies. I've found it very useful! My two complaints are that there is no option to hide multiple choice (often i choose the right answer by guess or process of elimination) and that when studying kanji, it doesn't give the japanese pronunciation for the base word or words, just the extra examples.
Given that you can read hiragana and katakana, I'd definitely recommend this app to anyone looking to beef up for an exam or just wants to flesh out their Japanese vocabulary.
I think this is good supplementary review software. I used it just to remember the English rough definitions of 103 kanji.
