Seems well developed but expensive

10 letters is all you can learn with this app before you have to pay a minimum of $5. Being taught how to write the letters correctly is nice, but not quite that nice. I can do that elsewhere with only a little more effort but for free, instead.
If your willing to pay, it’s a pretty good app for learning the 2 Japanese syllabaries though.

High Expectations

It’s a good idea, but margin for messy writers isn’t high. I am writing the hirigana correctly but it’s not exactly the same as the robot so it makes me do it 10 times until it’s literally perfect lol
