This app as well as the online course provided by the Japan Foundation have restored my hope in learning Japanese. I was feeling extremely overwhelmed when I sat down and came across all of the resources available but this app and the course have made it all so clear and easy to understand. I am just now starting my path of learning Japanese but am so excited and looking forward to how much I will learn!

Works like a Charm

My 65 year old brain was able to to learn all 46 characters within 7 days with the aid this App. Some memory hints did not help me and I made up my own, but generally speaking this system is highly effective and works for me. Thank you to the developers for this effective tool.

Love this app

This is a great app. I’ve tried memorizing with no success until this app. The creative pictures really help. My one issue is the tiny type in history and directions on how to use the app.
