Highly recommend

This app has many features that make it worthwhile. Various settings allow a user to customize to their needs. One of the options is choosing the book one is studying from. I am using a JLPT book and this app allows me extra practice. The JLPT option in the app is also well fleshed out, going beyond JLPT kanji so that there is over 3000 kanji to study. The other thing I love about this app is the accuracy in tacking my writing. Whether I use my Apple pencil or a finger, the app accurately tracks what I’m writing. The most important thing is that I also want to use the app. The interface is clean and its simplicity encourages me to open it up and study.

Pair with WaniKani for Ultimate Power

For the low price of nothing your could get a better kanji script practice app than any of the subscription apps out there. I just hope this app continues to get updates. I would love to be able to sync between my devices.

Very helpful

I'm early in my journey into learning japanese and this has been really helpful so far! I just wish I could see what I was actually writing- as it stands you can only see your actual lines if you mess up. All other times it just auto-traces the pre-written character which is useful at times but it would be nice if there was an option to switch the tracing off or at least to see what you actually drew after you get it correct

Developer Response ,

The ability to see what you've actually drawn for the current stroke has been added in v0.21 ("Snap to Kanji" in the settings)!
