** Beta testing of a new version (2.1) which includes a spaced repetition feature has now commenced. Contact support if you would like to be included in this beta test **
Kanji UP! is an application that helps you learn to recall and write 2042 Japanese Kanji characters. It currently supports the Heisig ordering and method of study which focuses on recall of the kanji based on meaning only.
Study Kanji by practicing them one by one. Information displayed includes meaning, strokes, readings and you can enter a short story to help you remember them.
Quiz yourself on the Kanji which you have studied. You are given an area to write your answer down, and can then compare your answer with the correct answer.
You can have the app remind you when it's time to study.
Add problematic Kanji to your starred list for later review.
At any time a kanji is displayed, you can tap it to see stroke order animations.
