Effective way to learn kanji that’s worth the money!

I normally don’t write reviews or even buy phone apps, but I’m so impressed at the effectiveness of this kanji app. I’ve tried other kanji apps and found them to be way too complicated to use that I wasn’t motivated to study with them every day.

This app really just gets to the point with reading, writing, and understanding the meaning of a word, and I can quickly use this to review words I’ve gone over in the app. It’s a very simple interface, but this flashcard style of learning works way better than anything else I’ve ever used. The way the words are grouped is very effective for learning too, with lessons in chunks of 4 words. The improvement in my Japanese comprehension has been night and day since starting this app, and I can’t wait to finish all the lessons in this app. This is such a daily staple to my daily routine now and I look forward to reviewing and learning new lessons every day.

With any small app, there are slight bugs with pronunciation in some words and there are features I think could improve the app. However, the developer is very responsive to messages, so I’m glad I invested in this app knowing it’ll be well-maintained. Thank you!

App that has great potential

This app is easy to use for a beginner. I would love to see more advance function like having both ON and KUN pronunciation. I only have on particular problem with reviewing practice. Most of the times, I only need to review one or two words out of four but going over everything from the beginning is kinda annoying. If somehow the user could pick words from different categories that they need to review into a group or folder and review them at once. For this current format, if I have 10 words from 10 different categories, I will end up redoing 40 words, which might be good for memorizing, but going over those 30 extra words that I already knew would likely make me give up. It would be so much more efficient, and less likely to be frustrated with the repetition, if I could just select the words that I need to review.

Was great at first.....

I bought this because the layout was super simple and it was very easy to use. The only problem is that whoever made this does NOT know proper stroke order with kanji. I would say 3/10 kanji have wrong stroke order.....which to me says that even if I get every question/stroke order right, I would only get a 70% at best when taking an actual test that has correct stroke orders on it. I graduated with a degree in Japanese Studies, and have been living in Japan for 6+ years now, and I can tell you this app was clearly not doubled-checked by a Japanese person of any kind it seems. I have brought it to many of my Japanese friends and coworkers and they have said the same thing.

The app was most likely created by someone who is British, or from that neck of the woods. I say that because the words used when labeling kanji are obviously from someone who uses those “proper” words. That wasn’t a problem at all to be honest (in fact it was very interesting to hear the British version of those words), but it shows to me that they were more focused on fancy words instead of an app that helps me with the stroke order of kanji. Which if you ever talk to a Japanese professor, they will tell you stroke order is essential! I feel like I got duped into buying an app that has amazing potential, but falls flat. Needs at least another year of restructuring! Do not recommend!

Developer Response ,

Thank you for the feedback! I worked very closely with a native Japanese speaker to create the content for this app and have had other native Japanese speakers spot check the data. So I am confident that the stroke orders are correct. But please email me at with any characters that you feel have incorrect stroke orders and I will verify them again.
