    As a long-time learner of Japanese and wanting to increase my vocabulary, I felt like this would be a good way to increase my hearing and reading vocab. What I wish is I could get a more immersive option. Seeing an English word spelled out kind of yanks me out of learning and stuffs me into decoding.. which isn't the worst problem (intransitive and transitive can be a big deal), but I kinda want to be able to learn a little more outside of the context of English. I know for many words that's more difficult for verbals, but for things like nominals it could easily be represented with pictures; image association instead of decoding English equivalents would, I think, help the process tremendously for more visual learners.

    Super short review Good 1) app does not time you per question so you can take your time, understand all the options and pick the best one (and write them down physically as well) 2) the app does a decent job of repeating the most commonly mistaken questions 3) clean simple easy 4) sneakily forces new kanji on you (good for those who are moving slower than they really need to) Bad 1) could use more modes such as a timed mode 2) NEEDS distinction between transitive and intransitive verbs and their answers as a few questions N3 and up (i presume not just N3) have both the transitive and intransitive verb as an option but no distinction between the two (often having the exact same english equivalent) 3) could use some polish for the pronunciation 4) has a strange delay from time to time when selecting an option in menus (could just be my device) 5) could use a safe mode where an answer must be pressed twice to be selected as I’ve bumped the wrong answer with my fat thumbs several times (i personally hate touch screens) But I recommend this over every other app I have used
  • Good App, some annoying bugs

    I really enjoy the learning format of this app and paid money to unlock the full app, however some kanji cause the app to crash and cannot progress further. Also some readings are incorrect and sometimes answers do not show up and leave a blank space. Needs support options.
  • Wonderful!

    I really recommend this app, it’s tremendously helped me learn Kanji. Very user-friendly as well. A feature I love is how it adds to the Kanji dictionary which characters you’ve learned! Maybe one thing to fix, some characters have no pronunciation, and show up blank during a review, but that is not enough for less than five stars ✨ Thank you for this wonderful app ~

    This is the best Kanji study app I have found. The main downside is that it seems to be somewhat buggy as you go further. Quite often the sound will not play, and I find that the sound of the word is an important reinforcement for me. Also, sometimes there’s a bug where the correct answer is blank, and you just have to know to push where the button would have been. I find this frustrating since I use the app every day, but if you think about that, that means I’m still using the app every day. It really is a superb study tool.

    Great app that provides great instruction. This is an app that is perfect if you are on the go and don't have access to a computer or teacher. It's worth buying the lessons.
  • Lesson 9 of N5 needs to be fixed

    I love this app and it would be 5 stars however lesson 9, father, mother & Large hiragana shows up blank even in review. It also does not play a sound for these 3 kanji :/ if this gets fixed my review will be updated to 5 stars as other than that I love this app!
  • Love this, so helpful!

    I am so happy to have these apps! I am studying Japanese with Duolingo and when they introduce kanji they often neglect to provide pronunciation or a definition. And there is nowhere to complain about it! This app fills in those gaps for me. The kanji are introduced in a standard order in both so I can learn the kanji here when I am not clear about them in Duolingo. Also I use these apps on airplanes to study when there is no wifi and Duolingo is unavailable. My son learned a bunch of Japanese studying with me on our last flight. すごい!大好きです!

    I've been using the paid version for several months, from Level 5 up to Level 3. Overall, this app offers the best learning setup for me--simple, direct and not overly complicated with long explanations. However, like other users said, there's A LOT of room for improvement. 1. The app font should be normal computer type font or at least give users the option to switch. Currently, the calligraphic font means that you won't easily recognize the kanji in other contexts. 2. Each lesson usually introduces 4-5 kanji or combos. The app can get stuck alternating between only 2 (algorithm error?) so that you miss the other 2-3 when learning a new lesson. You can go back and review the lesson later but you won't see the learning lesson again. 3. Every time I attempt Level 3, Group 1, Lesson 51, the app crashes. 4. Designers should add a Review button per group and per level (not just for "needs review" and all kanji). 5. Dictionary should be searchable by English definitions. 6. The App Support link doesn't connect. Are the designers still in business? Anyway, I like the app, and I'd buy it again. BUT there are some serious issues that haven't been addressed.

    This app is good but it doesn't have stroke order and there can be a lot more things done to improve understanding of kanji such as using them in sentences. For now please add stroke order
