*** REVIEWS ***
"After a few disappointing purchases for learning Japanese, here is a program that outperforms the others. No hesitation to have if you are learning kana"
"This app is great. Was able to learn all the hiragana in a couple hours. And it sticks. I retest myself and I just fly through answers."
"I'm so surprised at how quickly I'm learning the hiragana that I didn't know! I've spent so much money on other apps when this was all that I should have purchased! Thank you!"
"I learned the entire Hiragana syllabary -- that's 71 symbols y'all -- in one session of 3 hours and 33 minutes!"
"Best app for learning Kana"
"Concise and practical .. Within a week, I mastered all of them"
"All memory based learning should be like this."
① Beautiful "Browse" Interface
All the Japanese kana are presented to you in a smooth, free scrolling "map" of colours (green means you're doing well, red means you need to work harder). Swipe to move around and see how you're doing, double tap or pinch to zoom in/out and single tap to enter full-size mode showing extra information such as examples.
② Kana Animations
Includes movie animations of how the characters are drawn - not just vector lines as in other apps but real brush-style strokes. Just "double tap" to play (a big thanks to Satoru Shinagawa).
③ Leitner Study Method = Awesome
Stickystudy remembers your progress for each sticky and adjusts testing frequency accordingly.
Clear audio from a native speaker for all characters.
⑤ List View
A classic iPhone style "list view" is also included. Scroll through large lists of characters instantly with a PC style scroll bar. Supports searching and sorting.
Each sticky is cross referenced with common example words.
Your study progress is constantly updated in a rolling bar chart.
