Kanji Study is a Japanese kanji study app that allows you to focus on subsets of the JLPT kanji and drill them for optimal retention. Although there are many great Japanese study apps out there, none quite had the kanji characters organized and presented in a way that I thought was ideal, so I created Kanji Study.

The idea is to break down the many kanji into smaller subsets, drill those kanji and assign each a rating based on how well you know them, eventually allowing you to just review those that are less familiar.

For each kanji, there are readings, definitions, stroke order animations, examples and more.

You can tag kanji to quickly look them up later and even shuffle the sets of kanji while studying.

The beginner level of kanji is provided free of charge. If you find this app helpful and wish to support me, please consider purchasing the one time upgrade at a nominal charge.

Enjoy and good luck studying!

Great app with one minor problem

This app is an extremely convenient way to learn different Kanji with the various usage examples, frequency, and readings. However, the app will occasionally crash when switching between the info of a character back to the button screen. This is not inconvenient enough to stop me from using the app because of how well the app works though!

Just flashcards, that’s it

I like this app, it is well made, I have no problems. I bought the in app purchase too. It works great. One thing I wish this app had though is tracing. Quiz-esque things on flash cards instead of JUST flashcards. Please add things like:
Quiz mode, asks you what a kanji is and you have to pick the right answer
Trace mode, practice drawing the kanji by tracing lines on screen
These would make this app amazing truly.

its pretty good

tried a few others cause anki is too expensive this was the best outta the ones i tried. it does well by hiding the meaning and allowing you to input your level of comfortability with each kanji. Im using it as a supplement to my other tools havent really had a problem
