Can we write kana? (Probably more)

The app is indeed phenomenal, but I feel like there is something missing. I feel like you should put kana as in letting us write it. I am also concerned about the pronunciation. There are combination that don’t include a pronunciation. For example: 十 makes the sound ジュウ。Yet it can't be pronounced. And also, the syncing. The syncing is very irritating! The further you progress to the app the more frequent the syncing is! (This will go with the Chinese app with the pronunciation and the syncing)

Developer Response ,

Kana handwriting is available on the iOS beta app! Here's a link where you can sign up:

The beta also includes thousands of audio additions and updates as well. It's also much better with syncing! :)

Please let us know what you think if you give it a try at

Skritter Japanese crashes immediately when opening - UPDATED - Issue resolved

Skritter Japanese crashes immediately when opening in my iPhone 6S on iOS 12. Uninstalling and reinstalling the app does t solve the issue. I e also tried power cycling my phone and performing a soft reset but the issue persists.

UPDATED: Issue resolves with latest update. Giving 4 out of 5 stars because I love the app and the excellent customer service but find the plans to be extremely expensive.

Great App

This is a great app and I feel like I would learn a lot if I could afford to subscribe! $15 is just too expensive, sadly. Wish there were more subscription options.
