Ratings and Reviews

Basically need to buy the whole thing


The April bus really simple and easy to understand. I like how it has a lot of at of both the hiragana and katakana letters for you to study, but the only quiz you can actually take without paying is the monograph everyone else is locked and has to be bought. It's hardly free. From the quiz I did take its a simple "multiple choice" quiz like it shows in the picture and could probably be very helpful if it used the whole alphabet. Over all you won't get much out of it without buying the extended versions for 2.99.

Great for learning Hiragana & Katakana

This is a simple and easy to use App!

Study then take a timed quiz. It’s great!

Awesome, well done, and a bargain!


Does exactly what it says. Let's me easily practice my Kana anywhere. It's not overloaded with useless features, ads, or distracting graphics. Being able to sync my progress on my iPhone and iPad is great too. And it contains all of the hiragana and katakana characters unlike a lot of other apps.
