Ratings and Reviews

Fun way to learn Kanji!

Catman 63

I've been using this app primarily in practice mode, to match the Kanji with its meaning... It is a good way to familiarize you with the characters (but I would not recommend it as a substitute for writing the characters down repeatedly).

There are a few minor mistakes here and there, and sometimes the On-yomi meaning is listed first instead of the Kun-yomi... but these are minor, and I have really enjoyed using this app.

Also - the Kanji resource is a great way to see each year's worth of Kanji in one sitting. Great app, I highly recommend it!

It's a lot of fun and addictive

I love this app!
The graphics are beautiful and the game is very addictive. I've been playing with this game of a while now and it's amazing how fast you can learning the English for each character!

White every penny!



I've been using this for over a year now and it's the first review I've ever written for an App that I downloaded. I usually don't say anything, but this App REALLY ROCKS! Even after a year I still go back to it and... OH YES... I'm up to grade 5 and pushing with all the other grades.

AN AMAZING GAME - if you like to learn different languages or want to learn how to read and write Japanese IT'S A MUST!

The part where you can write on the iPad is just ... Wow

Okay, so I'm a little emotional. It's my favorite game and I find myself writing kanji on paper everyday while away from my iPad just to get better. I haven't noticed any problems with randomization like other users and I play it a lot. But, I do agree with other reviews that this game would be even better if you could match up the Japanese readings as well. Don't get me wrong, the English ones are really cool cuz they help me in 'guessing' the overall meaning with other Japanese Kanji around them! But there is so much that can be done with this App and it's super fun and challenging.

As it stands, this is an AMAZING App. I hope to find more Apps like this one. I'd say that for the price with this much detail, and getting to use it everyday, it's definitely worth it!
