There seem to be a bug when your custom list is sufficiently large jumping between random cards will only cycle through a certain few of them, it seems impossible to get to the most of the cards through random button.

Cool- Awesome! I have always wanted to learn japanese! But then- I realised there was 3 japanese alphabets- I wanted to learn Hirigana, but I didn't know there was more than 1 alphabet! So, I downloaded an app telling me katakana! So I need to check the pronouncation on that app, then check back here to translate into hirigana! I love this app! :)

Vinod Vijay

Works elegantly The filtering and the layout are really nice. Don't see any specific issue I feel need to be changed yet. Great work!

Lynn Wieczorek

Needs More stroke order info. Stoke order is half the battle, the other half being memorization. This app needs to focus more on stroke direction and order to maximize its use.

Vishal Kumar

Dead app This app is jus like a dead man.. Wearing good not gonna help u at all.... It is a just notebook to write.. Nothing else..

De'Zsa Smith

Great app but the roumaji is awful and not recommended for learning Japanese. Please replace them with hiragana for the pronunciations. The font is white, so I can't see the font under "List of all." Please help :/ UPDATE: Been over a month and problem persists.

Regina Pertiwi

So complete, but I think if any quiz.about writing kanji thats better

Mike Hallowich Jr

Not a bad app It has stroke order when you hit the icon that almost looks like a camera, has helped me with recognizing hiragana pretty good, soon onto katakana

geet Kaur

I have a problem Because of the android 5.0 in my phone the font color in the app has changed, it shows white on white which makes it impossible to use. Please update the app now for android 5

Sven Schiff

Needs some work It would be good if we could adjust the size of the writing. It's big on a tablet. Also, at the time of writing this review, hiragana is misspelled hirakana in the app, which is very sloppy. Version 1.2.9

Ana Karine Leite Pereira

Yay! Thank you VERY much. I always wanted to learn japanese, and now I can. Is a good app! (^ω^)

Adria Madden

Awesomeness This has helped me so much! ♥

Aaron blackford

Good start Needs a grading system on your efforts otherwise seems a bit pointless.

Mimi Elf

Yeyyy~ Finally, I could practise while I'm learning ^_^

George Romero

Awesome! It has everything I want and more! Excellent learning tool. I'm happy I found this app. ?

Divyans Mahansaria

Very good app! A very good Japanese language learning material.

Supreme Toresheju Eghosa

Really good I ♥ it buy

Cynnia Holman

It won't even open Frankly, I would give this no stars if it were an option. Everytime I try to open the app it exits seconds later with a message stating "unfortunately the app has stopped working"

Mar Coo

Excellent Really gets you started learning to write & recognise the characters.

Philip Reyes

Needs update and lots of bugs

Elmo Tuwaidan

Found it!

Andrew Hallidie

Fantastic app! After aedict this is the best app for Japanese learners. Wish I'd thought of it :) great work devs. Most ppl would happily pay for an app as good as this.

Vassili Ivanovic Kovernickov

Loved it Loved it even im not japanese

Marshy Harris

I love this!! I'm trying to learn Japanese so I can read my favorite mangas in Japanese and I'm starting with hiragana first and I've already memorized all of them!! This was just for at least a week and using one hour a day, an hour! Other than this flash card app called Flashkana this is my most favorite and I think I love this app more than Flashkana!! I would definitely recommend this app!! ???????? ✌ -Marshy

Sterling Young

Has potential When practicing the handwriting, the sound sometimes doesn't play. Occasionally, you have to click the headphone button two or three times before the pronunciation will play, which gets really annoying. I also wish there was audio for the flash cards. Otherwise, it's pretty helpful.

Xander Ray

Just one problem I love this app! I study my kanji whenever I eat! I'll get insomnia from my smartphone because I was up all night on this app. There are maybe 2 problems. ...1. Allow the users to scroll down on the definitions. Some words flood what we can see due to it's many pronunciations. Therefore, I can't see what the kanji actually means...2. The voice speaker seems to be broken for me, but it doesn't matter too much for me because i can tell how it's pronounced for the most part. But no matter what..i love this app

Misaki Ohno

Yay! This will be very useful for my japanese classes. Thank you!

Suyanti Djemiran

I love it I don't know why 'cos I just love to learn more about other languages and this is one of them

Natalie Wu

Ty for the reply!^-^


Great, but... Would be perfect if the flashcards could be randomized.

Durrani Ismail

One of the best app to practice Japanese handwriting.

I Lowe

Great app but internet access required This is a terrific app. The only reason I gave it a 4 instead of 5 is because I prefer to be offline when using my apps. You can write the katakana over the model and then have it show a blank screen, write it again and then have the model reappear right on topof with you wrote to see your accuracy. The app also plays sounds. This way you can hear how to pronounce each character. You can choose "random" to help you memorize the characters in no particular order.

Mary Ann Zuniega

Love it It helps me a lot I know to speak some Japanese and now to write in Japanese

Brenda Rodriguez

:D useful. It does help improve skills on Japanese handwriting.

Veronika Stepova

Very good! Please, make setting the thickness of the line by the user. V1.2.6

Aleksey Tkd

very good!!! nice!!! thank you!!! very good!!! nice!!! thank you!!!

Thai Danh

Quality Learning App I enjoy using this app on my commute to work. It's simple to pick up and easy to use. I probably learned all my JP5 kanji just from this app. Highly recommended.

Ais Aida

Great I learning hiragana now but there is nowhere to write it easily. This app being so helpful...! ;)


why is the font white in "list of all"?? please fix it.....

Angelie Panugan

Great app! Its a great a app for learning japanese,but some words like Owari which means end,the way u write it on kanji is somehow wrong I've searched it on the net and found it different.Also it will be nice if you can search up the words rather than scrolling it,cause it really takes time to scroll down alot of words.Thanks I really like your app

Rebecca Powell

Great This is great, but the flash card section seems to be uncompleted because there is a function to reverse the cards, but it's just blank

Hannah Moore

Ok. Wish it showed step by step.

Jacob Stephens

Helpful It's a very good app that will help you practice writing and retaining which character is which because of the flash cards. However, I wish that you could make more of your own lists so you don't have to uncheck all of the characters in your list to try and pick out certain characters to study a certain section of a script.

Brian Donnelly

Excellent study tool! This is a great app. Just want to point out that you have two hiragana listed as zu. One is actually Tzu and the other Zu.

Lion Couple

Jessell Aguisanda

Great app! Would love to have a customizable, hand-written quiz to one's capacity. But other than that, I love this app! I always use it to study new Kanji and previously learned ones.

Alex Gibbs

Great app, too many ads. Would gladly pay for an ad free version.

Fandango Arts

Devs pls Devs... Really, please. This is one of best japanese apps, but leave the big font of the previous updates. Tablets are big for something! Don't make our eyes bleed, Christ!! It was so perfect!!!!!

Arif Wijaya

I really like this apss, very useful, it helps me learn kanji every where every time. Thanks.

Richard Furuya

Good app for review I like the stroke animation, but it would be better if there was a speed control to slow down for re-drawing the kanji. Also the dictionary definitions have changed in the games. Please change it back.

Derek Ryan

Like it but There ia no way to return to the main menu, no matter what i do (short of reinstalling) im stuck on hand writing

David Hwang

Apprecitate your efforts Thank you, i have been looking for this type of app to learn writing of Japanese. Thank you again.

Kawaii Sofiena

I really like it! I'ts very useful!! But....what is the meaning of JLPT?

Artesa Dushi

Good but not the one i wanted

Andi Rohmadi

Thank you ,since I realize there is bahasa indonesia

Shikha Shah

Nice but..... Its very useful but its is not arranged properly like English alphabets Abc have a order but in this the Japanese alphabet are not arranged in a sequence any time any alphabet comes it should be fixed but rest all is just wonderful pls fix it

Abdurhman Alharbi

Nice app Grid view please.

H A Aslan

lovin' the new designs ☺ but i wish you can choose to change the list view into grid view, it's kinda hard you know to scroll and scroll and scroll just to find the exact word/character you want to practice on. other than that this app have been a huge help in my japanese language learning, thanks!

Sukhbir Singh Shah

Very nice app Very nice app helped me alot best app to learn Japanese must download easy n simple just loved it

Tashi Sherpa

This app is great, especially with the list of kanji it provides. One minor flaw is that readings are in romaji (this is fine for kana, but not kanji). Another minor flaw is that when reading (kunyomi, onyomi) which is which are not given. The major flaw though, is that it is awkward to navigate to the kanji you would like to practice handwriting. It takes too long, and I've found this has stopped me using this app. A search function would also be great.

Linh Ta

Great app Great app. But i detect a bug, i cant logout from writing mode. So i must re-install this app. Update 12/09/2015: Other bug: when i switch view mode then this app auto reset last sẹtting. Follow step: 1. Hand writing at mode vertical screen. 2. Change setting. 3. Switch screen to horirontal screen. => bug at step 3. Setting at step 2 will be reset to default.

De'Zsa Smith

Great app but The roumaji is not recommended for learning Japanese. Please replace them with hiragana for the pronunciations. UPDATE: Awesome redesign! But we still lack furigana/hiragana pronunciations. Please add an option to change between roumaji and hiragana.

Carmina Granado

Quite helpful One of the best apps to learn the proper strokes of Japanese characters. Great UI, however the UXD (user experience design) needs some improvement. I'm looking forward to your next update. Thank you devs, for your wonderful contribution!

Michael Norwood

Great app Thank you for making this app.

Amel Ichinose

Thank you for this amazing app :)

shayden conrad de ocampo

Amazing Just wow!!!

Blessy Chio

Could be better I really like that this app shows the stroke order for each character, and the search feature is helpful as well especially for kanji. But I think this could be better if you could provide examples of the kanji being used in a sentence.

Glenn Uzamaki

Excellent I think this app is great because what's the use you know how to speak Japanese without understanding the words of it.

Sophie Fisher

OMG I always wanted to learn Japanese to beat my frenemies in a comp and know I will learn how to write in Japanese !!!!!!!! OMG so great

Sara Gaffney

Great for learning I was able to use every function of this app to learn Japanese easily and quickly. The fact that it offers flash cards, lists, and handwriting practice is very helpful.

Adrianna Martin

Great, but a few suggestions The step-by-step animations and the organization of the kanji are great. The only suggestions I have are that my list could hold more kanji, the reading could also be shown in kana (or there could be an option to switch back and forth), and a list of common paired kanji with reading explanations would be exceptionally helpful.

Zaria Whitaker

Good game It helps me alot

Jeffrey Molinari

One thing Great app. just one problem. I'm unsure what some of the features do. Such as the checkmark you can hit to mark red. That's all it means to me. 'i marked it red' What does it do? does it serve a purpose? I think it's time you created a proper manual or tutorial within the app.

Sherilyn Espiritu

Great App ! A big help for us to learn more . ??

Soham Vaidya

Good but This is a good app but its speaker is not working and i unistall it

bhawani shanker

Awesome!!!!!!!! Amazing app to study Japanese...........

Jaylee James

Great practice app This is super helpful in refreshing my knowledge of Japanese alphabets. It's a bit annoying to switch between romaji and hiragana/katakana easily which makes it slow and frustrating as a way to quiz yourself. Also I can't seem to get the audio to work at all.

Lisa Longenecker

Too hard to understand the robotic voice I think it would help if they used a human voice example of how the letters sound. The robotic voice makes it too hard to differentiate between was sound goes to each character.

Sanarker Subramaniam

Pretty good app makes it easier to write hiragana, katakana and kanji

Peter Homfray

Just good It works. Shows strokes, sounds, and english.

Mishu Mishu

Loved it

Derek Ryan

Like it but There ia no way to return to the main menu, no matter what i do (short of reinstalling) im stuck on hand writing
