Great for learning kanji through bushu! This is the kanji app I've been looking for! Love that it breaks down kanji into bushu and radicals, makes learning them much easier. Lots of different modes to facilitate different learning styles. Bonus points for having a JLPT N5 free version. Tried it out for a day and it sold me on the full version. Only minus is that it seems to be portrait mode only, but that's pretty minor to me. Things I'd like to see in the future: being able to sort kanji by bushu, and a set that is just numbers and counters.

Excellent I've tried several Japanese learning apps, and I tend to come back to this one frequently due to some unique features. I really like the emphasis on the elements, and the way the breakdown is shown for kanjis during practice mode (I only wish it would also show the breakdown on the kanji via the handwriting entry - this breakdown lookup feature ideally should be available everywhere a kanji is visible). I also like the puzzle mode & the hinting method for drawing practice, which are unique features. So far I've not found the single kanji char recognition to be so good, but it doesn't matter to me. I would probably say this app is a must have for serious kanji learners.

could be great app this could be a really great app except that I cannot use the puzzle section of the app as I am unable to move the elements around the grid, if this could be fixed it would be 5 stars no problem

Extremely useful Simple (in terms of graphics) and helpful, with different quiz methods, such as arranging kanji elements in the proper order - my favourite of all ^^
