pleasantly suprised !

i commonly forget the stroke order of kana characters and i mix them up often. i was looking for a good app that has me write the characters over and over to drill them in my brain. this app absolutely delivers ! very good price point for what is being offered and i really like the brush that is used. most apps just give you a monoline brush tool that makes everything you write look rather.. unpleasant. the brush in this app makes my writing look a lot better. i love that little detail. the AI isn't too strict from what i've seen, it has messed up a few times but i can't really be too upset about it, it's AI after all. and regardless, it performs well. i really appreciate this app !!

Developer Response ,

Thank you for the positive review!
I'm glad to read that the brush makes learning flow more pleasant; in terms of implementation, the calligraphic behavior has been somewhat tricky : )

Amazing but so annoying

I love this app, I’m taking Japanese 1 this semester and it’s helped me memorized things on the go. The only thing that just annoys me so much is the fact that if you don’t get the stroke order perfectly but know the character it resets your progress little by little. Then I just have that one stroke order stuck in my head slowly forgetting the one I previously memorized. Then there’s the fact that if you have different devices even if it’s linked to the same iTunes account it won’t save the progress to the other device. But those are my only complaints. You guys should make an app or section for kanji too, would definitely buy 😆!

Love this app! But.....

I really love this app. It’s super helpful, and you really get to know the Japanese characters by the time the test comes around. However.... I think it needs to be fix just a little bit for the character “hi” in hiragana... you have to be super accurate for it to mark what you did as correct. I haven’t been able to finish that section because it keeps repeating “hi” over and over again, and I can only get it super accurate so many times... and e more you get it wrong the more it undoes you’re progress, and I should only have three more to do till the exam, but I get it wrong once or twice and now I have 5 more to do... that character is super sensitive... please fix it! And hopefully no other characters are like that!
