Missing kana


What happened to ga gi gu ge go? Or da di du de do? Or ba.............



It has も with incorrect stroke order. I didn't even look at the others; if one is wrong they prolly all are

To some of the idiot reviewers...


Not ALL the stroke orders are wrong. I looked at the first character, A, and saw no problem. That right there tells me you're an immature liar. Plus, people don't follow the stroke order for everything. How do you write the letter P? Some people do a circle first, then draw a line straight down... To the person asking about "ga gi gu ge go," ever seen what the characters look like? Ever noticed they look JUST like the K-series? If you add a dakuten (or softening mark), it becomes a different set without changing much (just adding a small quotation mark at the upper-right of the character). Same with your "da di du de do"--that's for the T-series (and there is no official "di", besides でぃ. I doubt you know more than 10 characters). MY notes for this app, though, is that it would be a good idea to add a kana test to improve the memory of some people. Other than that, it's good for practice whenever you forget how to write something.

Very useful


No incorrect stroke order. It's perfect.

Perfect for what it is


Don't listen to the morons. Good app limited usability. Works great. Stroke orders are about form and structure. If you've ever seen Japanse handwriting it's just like when Americans write English - sometimes it's perfect and sometimes it's sloppy. It would be nice if the soften/alternative (b,g,p,v,z, & j) series/characters were in there but if you're learning to write these characters then you SHOULD be able to remember where they go and when; which is: last and to the right. P.S. I would pay for an app that let's you practice wrting the characters yourself.

Great app!


Pair this with kana pad and you've got a full practice system on the palm of your hands!!!also も is in the correct order left to right, top to bottom. P.S.@Jusjokin: there's no di du. It's da ji zu de do -_-

Good but...


I love this app because I am just starting to learn Japanese. I wish it had 2 things. First, I would like to have audio pronunciations. Second, I wish it was in a flashcard format that allowed me to switch from one character to the next quickly. I would love to see this app and flashcard app connect. I would buy an app like that for $10.

Yay it's back!!!


I thought I would never see this great app again!!! I'm learning my kana and I love this app!

Great app!


I'll have these characters memorized in no time!

Not bad


Robert, you are wrong. The first stroke of も is the down stroke. But モ the two strokes are first. They need to fix the app.
