"After a half hour, I was blazing through each exercise: highly recommended for beginners". - The Huffington Post

“I came across Dr. Moku's Hiragana Mnemonics....Thirty minutes later I had memorized all Hiragana". -

Mnemonics are memory tricks that use humor or a memorable personal connection to help you fix and break associations so your brain has no choice but to remember.

Perfect for the complete beginner, young or old, this is the foolproof and definite way to master the first steps in learning Japanese.

Each screen presents a Katakana character along with a mnemonic clue and audio clip. Read the clue, listen to the clip and move on to the next one. The alternating bold colors will 'reset' your brain so you start fresh with each character. Then take a quiz! You will be amazed at your ability to recall Katakana after just a few minutes.

Great Beginners App

I love the app but my suggestion is please add the option of viewing the missed characters after the quiz.

Amazing app! I honestly learned Hiragana and katakana within an hour each. (One hour for Hiragana. Another hour for katakana). It was truly helpful and fun to learn.

They even have a small update that lets you play cross word puzzles so you can also practice your Japanese and some vocabulary (there isn’t much vocabulary but it does get you started on learning).

It is a great app, but

Don’t get me wrong. The connect is wonderful. It truly helps you to learn Japanese. However, the apps requires a lot maintenance. Simple things like screen rotation and multitasking are not really implemented (just to mention a few). I agree that taken this into account the app is expensive. But I feel like you are paying more for the concept behind it than the app development.
