What's New in Version 2.1
Update Version 2.1

* Added gestures to flashcards (swipe left to previous card, swipe right to next card, tap card to flip)
* Fixed some animated stroke order diagrams
* Added improved bug reporting functionality
Please add compound meanings
This is a fantastic app, but it badly needs one update. When doing flashcards for the "readings", flipping the card does not have the translation of the kanji compound. So you have to hit 'flip card', then hit the little 'book' icon to pull up the details to see the translation, which takes a long time and kind of defeats the purpose of the flash cards. The book (Part 2, reading the Kanji) recommends reviewing based on compound, not character. Please update the app with this text!
A nice companion to the books
This app is very useful for on-the-go review of RTK material, especially stroke order and drawing practice. It easily gets 3 stars for having all the core info from the books with several lookup methods. Unfortunately the lack of any spaced repetition system makes the flash card function useless. Also you can't cross reference primitives by just tapping them, you have to drill all the way back to the top and search from there...the UI could be streamlined some. Even so, I use this app alongside the book and my desktop Mac flash cards and it's very helpful.
Useless without keyword to story
Guys. You must have at least LOOKED at Heisig's book. We have to review by lookin at the KEYWORD and trying to remember our STORY. If you have to click three or four times through some menus to get to the story, it's practically useless.
Look at the paper flash cards that Heisig put out before. The key part is that the KEYWORD is on the front and the STORY is on the back, with the actual kanji upside down or something so we can try to remember how to write it on our own.
Until there is a way to put the keyword on the front and the story on the back, I can't use this.
