Not bad, but...

This is good app with many katas. The major drawback is that the intermediate movements between the positions are not displayed. The app is also very pricy considering there are other good free apps out there for katas. I would recommend the authors to take example on the "hein godan" free app to display all intermediate steps in slow motion. If they implement something similar then the app will deserve 5 stars despite the steep price.
