Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Kanji Study is a Japanese kanji study app that allows you to focus on subsets of the JLPT kanji and drill them for optimal retention. Although there are many great Japanese study apps out there, none quite had the kanji characters organized and presented in a way that I thought was ideal, so I created Kanji Study.
The idea is to break down the many kanji into smaller subsets, drill those kanji and assign each a rating based on how well you know them, eventually allowing you to just review those that are less familiar.
For each kanji, there are readings, definitions, stroke order animations, examples and more.
You can tag kanji to quickly look them up later and even shuffle the sets of kanji while studying.
The beginner level of kanji is provided free of charge. If you find this app helpful and wish to support me, please consider purchasing the one time upgrade at a nominal charge.
Enjoy and good luck studying!

Great Until In-App Purchase
This app was working well for the first few months. I decided to buy the in-app purchase. Ever since, it has been crashing upon opening. I have deleted and reinstalled it, soft rebooted my iPhone (power and home button), and downloaded it from my Mac and transferred it via iTunes. None of these three methods have worked. I would like to get the app to work, with the in-app purchase, as soon as possible. Thank you!
I love this app, and just within having it for 2 weeks I had already memorized 103 kanji symbols and their meaning. I just wish it had more of a fun-type game sort of thing to help better remember the readings. Other than that it's a great app!
I am currently trying to learn Japanese and using every available resource I can, so I'm confident with myself saying; if you're trying to do the same, this is a great app to have.
