Ratings and Reviews
A pretty good app to learn hiragana and katakana... But with few issues
I really like this app. The practice feature is great. And it helps you in the journey of learning Japanese... But there are a few issues with it. Sometimes it’s a little weird the pronunciation of every symbol. To explain this better it’s like a Japanese robot is talking, but it is barely understandable. Plus, when writing the kanas in the correct order,(with the practice feature in hard mode) the machine just gets exited and tells you it’s correct, even if you haven’t even finished to write it. This maybe a little confusing for some users (including me) and sometimes I just forget some details from the kanas that are very important to read ir properly. In conclusion, I think it is a great app to learn hiragana and katakana, but it can improve. Thank you for reading until the end and have a great day :)
Edit: nope, this is the best out there <3
Best yet kana practice found, look no further, this does the job splendidly
Wow, I’ve seen/used many apps offering kana practice but this one actually allows custom selections for targeting type of characters or personal choice to focus on. Very cool yet surprisingly lacking on many kana apps.
Furthermore several options to practice (ez multiple choice, a type romaji answer and even option to trace strokes free form) Very nice flexibility that isn’t typical. Ofcouse audio samples available too. It includes both katakana & hiragana with all variations. Plus you can’t beat the price.
Bravo on fantastic app, elegant in simplicity yet not lacking in features. Thanks much for your efforts. I appreciate & endorse your well crafted software.
Best learning app!
Not only does it provide the various Japanese alphabets. It tests you, and scores you on your progress. Tests are both reading, and writing. In just a few days I feel like I’ve learned more than I have in week. I am also thankful it provides an area for notes. I am a visual learner, so repetitive writing helps a lot as I learn each character individually. I also appreciate the other apps it offers to help further my language proficiency. I love learning languages, and enjoy individually learning them. But, this app has allowed me to learn quickly, and progress through it at a very enjoyable pace. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to learn Japanese.
