Kanji Study is my ongoing project that attempts to be an easy to use and helpful app for learning Japanese kanji. The idea is to start with splitting characters into manageable set sizes and then study using flashcards, customizable quizzes, and writing challenges. Each kanji has detailed information and many examples. The app also provides a powerful search tool for looking up kanji by radicals, stroke count and more. Custom groups are available to focus on the kanji you struggle with the most.
The app is NOT entirely free. The free version has no ads and offers unlimited study for beginner kanji, hiragana, katakana, and radicals. Search is also completely unrestricted. The one-time upgrade unlocks the remaining kanji study groups and allows you to create your own sets. It also supports the continued development of this app.
I am continually working on translations. If you are interested in helping, please contact me.

★★★★★ Superior to every other kanji app. This is the kanji app you’re looking for. The UI is smooth, clean, and sensible. Functionality wise it is rich with features wrapped in a robust system of easily studying, organizing, and understanding kanji. A notable highlight is the writing practice as the app recognizes stroke direction, and corrects you according to the kanji.
