It forces you to learn through repetition, and it works well.

Great I've been using this for a week now and It helped me learn the kana so fast. I suggest you learn hiragana and katakana in free mode first. Then get the full version so you dont get confused about what the accent marks do and it adds double character kana such as kyo(きょ) for example.

Amazing for memorization The best app to burn the Kana into your mind and make sure they stay there. Best used in conjunction with apps of an explaining nature to learn things such as pronunciation and the diacritical marks and combinations, which this app doesn't touch upon.
