Best one I’ve used

Most apps that I’ve used for kana don’t have a writing feature so that you can practice drawing the kana, and even if they do, the system is so strict that it will count your answer wrong because it cannot read the answer correctly. With this app, it allows you to check your answer yourself, this way you won’t get the answer wrong due to a programming error. Therefore, this app is my first choice for learning kana.
