Fantastic app

This is my favorite kanji study app. Clean, easy to use and highly customizable, this has everything I need for study. The custom study lists also let me target study for specific textbooks which has saved me mountains of time.

Worth the money

I enjoy using this app. I think it's good for kanji recognition, not so much for being able to reproduce kanji on paper, but it definitely has improved my reading ability. One issue: some of the characters seem to be missing important readings, and I don't know why that is. The character 為 for instance does not include the reading 「ため」, which I would think is one of the most common readings? This app is otherwise so useful, it would be great if they could improve this issue.

Used for Over 10 Years

I love this App. I have had it for over ten years and it is the best time killer. I use it to most to learn kanji characters and the stroke orders, as well as vocabulary. Great supplement to anyone looking to study Japanese.
