What's New in Version 1.8.9
See a new kanji and not sure how to write it? The handwriting recognition can now recognize kanji written in any stroke order.
(Writing kanji in the correct stroke order is still very important for learning Japanese.)
If you like Midori, would you mind rating us on the App Store? It helps us a lot. Thank you!
I really like this app better than most others out there. You can disable/enable different features for the flash cards so they appear as you want them to. Being able to draw the kanji is very helpful too.
The only feature that would make the app perfect is being able to choose a folder and practicing flash cards from all subfolders. Right now you can only practice one set of vocab at a time, but it'd be great to be able to mix them up.
If you study Japanese and have an iOS device, you need this app
Midori is essential for Japanese language students. If you're wondering whether or not you need this app, the answer is "yes". Its value far exceeds its modest price. Finally, the developer is the most responsive I've ever had the pleasure of interacting with; he takes great pains to make Midori as comprehensive and polished as possible.
This app is great for learning, and reference. I used it successfully several times to quickly look up key words and build sentences when I was in Japan. You can enter a word in English and are presented with options - and pronunciations. This is really nice if you suspect that you know what a sign says, but want to validate.
