Uh, hello?

I've had this app to learn Japanese katakana and hiragana for years now and there have not been updates since 2015! What the heck, people! What happened? I have to find a different app just to practice writing.... please come back and finish your app! :c

No writing practice

I downloaded this hoping to practice writing hiragana. There’s a menu item for writing practice, but when you tap it it says “Writing practice coming soon.” Since the app was last updated three years ago, I’m guessing “soon” means “never.”

I suppose it’s still useful for learning the kana, but I’ve found other apps I like better for that.

Very helpful app

I like how I'm able to select which characters to practice. This app is very helpful for learning the correct pronunciations. Can't wait until the writing practice becomes available too.
