Features:

Review Mode:

Study Kanji by viewing them one by one. Information displayed includes meaning, strokes, readings and you can enter a short story to help you remember them.

Test Mode:

Quiz yourself on the Kanji which you have reviewed. You are given an area to write your answer down, and can then compare your answer with the correct answer.

Excellent for Heisig's... But how about updating to the new revised list of Kanji? Also, traditional JLPT ordering would be nice (but I know, completely optional since this focuses on Heisig's).

Limited capabilities Would be so much better if you could choose to reverse the way the testing is, showing you the kanji first instead of the definition.

Does the job and Easy to Use. Kanji UP is my ONLY tool, and I have not seen anything else come close. It works perfectly with Heisig's system. Plus it shows you an animation of how to draw the kanji. Really a great program. ________________ I look forward to the upgrade. I hope that the upgrade will provide a way to mark problem cards. As it is I have to rely on Kanji Renshuu to mark my problem cards -- that program has no space for stories, but does have a Leitner type of repetition system. But I think it would be enough if this program would just let you flag the problems -- or just automatically flag the ones you get wrong. I find that when I come back to a section a month or so later, it is still the same ones that I am getting wrong. So being able to just study those problems without having to go through the known kanji would be extremely useful. ___________________ Also useful for some users would be to allow for easy import of stories from kanji.kohii.com. However, export your kanji.koohi stories to an andoid text editor and paste them one at a time into Kanji UP works pretty good. Or a bluetooth keyboard would work if you have to type each story into KanjiUp.

Thanks for this great and fin study aid. I love this app. I've used anki before, but I like this app better. I can practice writing the kanji. With anki sometimes I had the idea of the primitives, but wasn't actually remembering how to write them correctly. The only change I would suggest, is the ability tho draw the characters in review mode. Perhaps tracing over the provided kanji. My kids like to grade me during my test or watch the animation and draw the kanji themselves. Also, I appreciate apps that don't require permissions. Thanks.
