This is a great app that has already been extremely helpful to me only after using it for a few days. I would like to make one suggestion though. Like thousands of other people I’m learning Japanese via Duolingo, and Kanji Teacher is particularly helpful in overcoming one of the biggest drawbacks with that platform, especially in regards to Japanese (and probably Mandarin), namely the inability to practice writing kanjis & hiragana/katakana. However it seems that not all kanjis used in the duolingo curriculum are present in Kanji Teacher - or maybe they are, but sometimes under different keywords and hence very hard to find. It would be tremendously beneficial to double-check and make sure that the dictionary supports those kanjis so that a Duolingo student can integrate writing practice as they go along. As I said, some are already present, but unfortunately many seem not to be. Obviously I have no way of knowing how much effort it would be to make this happen, especially given that KT is a free program, but I think it would make for a perfect companion app to go with DLs massive platform.

First of all, this app is 100% free, which is great. It has all of the joyo kanji broken up by JLPT level. And it has Japanese vocab. You can test reading-vocab, or vocab-reading. Kun-kanji m, on-kanji, and the reverse. It has a larger answer grid option, which is nice for when you want more of a challenge. Only thing is I wish there was a way to study a JLPt level and alll the levels below that level too, at the same time. Also wish there were sound effects when you get right or wrong answer....but those are niggling requests for an app that’s free. Otherwise, this app is awesome, and is even more incredible that it’s free. update: thank you developer for replying :) yes starring them should help for now, I will try that. Otherwise your app is incredible.... it would still be awesome even if you charged for it imho. Also, maybe you could add additional vocabulary, with example sentences, as an in-app purchase? There are lots of apps that have the basic JLPT vocabulary but very few that offer more than that, built in to study. Your app is(still) highly recommended for anyone studying Japanese.

I’ve already written to support for this app for a major problem I have, but I’m not entirely sure it’ll be fixed. The other issues come down to how the writing test is implemented, which is part of the reason why I’m rating this so low. Now, I will give at least some leeway with the device screen being so small, but the other problem (the one I contacted support about) is on my device the exercises take up even LESS room somehow than they do in the screenshots shown making them even more infuriatingly harder than they should be. It’s already hard to draw precise lines on a device you’re holding in your hands; next to impossible when the area you have to draw in is about an inch in size and your finger takes up most of that space already. The multiple choice questions for the reading/keyword quizzes aren’t as bad, but they still suffer a bit from the lack of space since the answer boxes are super tiny. I’d honestly rather just use the multiple other flashcard apps and find writing sheets online rather than use this. It isn’t fun or interesting, it doesn’t add anything I can’t get anywhere else and it clearly isn’t formatted for my device (and it isn’t even a new large device either; I’m using an iPod touch 6th gen)

This app is amazing!! As a busy PhD student, I honestly would have given up on continuing to learn Japanese if not for this app. It makes it fun and easy to pick up and review a few kanji whenever I have a few minutes of free time. The ability to change the definitions of each kanji is especially helpful. The only thing I wish was improved was the addition of the ability to edit the readings for each kanji. For example the kanji for summer has a couple of different on’yomi (ka, ga, and ge) but the app only has ka. So if they could add the ability to edit the readings for each kanji like they do for the definitions then the app would be absolutely perfect.

I use this app and another Japanese dictionary app to review RTK. This app is so wonderful that it allows you to practice writing out the kanji (corrects your written kanji, too) and being able to favorite a few that you want to focus on with flashcards. There are simple games for you to challenge yourself along with a timer and the layout is really appealing. The only problem I have with this is that there’s not all of the kanji from the latest RTK book and you can’t create multiple lists. I have to use my other dictionary app to create a personalized list of the kanji I’m learning but I’m not a fan of their SRS flashcards like I am with this one. Otherwise this app would be my go to if it had more kanji!
