KanjiBox is an offline Japanese studying application. It provides an efficient yet fun way to practice all aspects of Japanese (kana, kanji, vocab, reading, writing...) through drills, quizzes and flash cards, while providing engaging feedback through progress charts, scores and game-like "achievements" for each Japanese level.

KanjiDraw and KanaDraw add-ons harvest the full power of your device's touchscreen to guide you through proper Japanese handwriting, while detailed animated cards tell you everything you need to know on each kanji.

KanjiBox is particularly well suited for standardized test preparation (JLPT, Kanji Kentei, Ninja Academy etc.) but works great as a personal study tool too.

(check the link, below, for a video showing some of the features in action)

Main features:
• Six training levels: JLPT N5 to JLPT N1, plus an extra "Sensei" level.
• Adaptative learning: focuses on your weak points and uses spaced repetition (SRS) techniques to help you learn faster.
• Live stats: let you measure your current level and gauge your progress.
• Online scoreboards and GameCenter achievements: compete globally against all KanjiBox users!
• Additional modules help you train your handwriting on kana and kanji using the touchscreen.
• Custom Study Sets let you pick your own set of vocabulary words or kanji to focus on.

• Over 6,000 kanji.
• Over 34,000 vocabulary words.
• Hiragana and katakana.

• Drill mode helps you train on kanji, vocabulary, word reading and kana.
• Quiz mode lets you log high scores and compete against friends.
• Study mode gives you customisable sets of flashcards.

Customer Reviews

Kanji study is fun

Briefly, this app on both iPad and iPhone has helped me learn more kanji than the laundry list of other apps and books that I've purchased. I like the new additions. I look forward to watching this app grow. KanjiDraw and KanaDraw are easily worth the money as are the new grammar sets. My only small niggle is that the design could use a touch up, but that is literally only cosmetic. The core is what counts and that's quite good.

Great app for kanji practice

This is a great app for people who have some experience with Japanese and also have the Imiwa app installed. There is great integration between the two, and with the recent updates this app has really become a polished learning environment. (Also updates are much more frequent than other Japanese apps.)

The Best Kanji Review App

Since this app has so much packed into it, it is hard to cover all it does well. But I use it regularly to test myself on kanji recognition and kanji readings. The experience is flawless and the tests and drills are challenging. Don't hesitate to buy this app.
