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.

Awesome I'd love a mid-step quiz that shows your story to help your recall of the kanji. Otherwise this is great!

Good app This app is good. No need to refer to the book to know how to write a Kanji. However, the animations are too fast to remember those strokes' orders. If you could add: number and direction next to strokes, and a little Kanji to refer to while watching the animation in the Review mode, that would be great.

Great App I loved the app, it had helped me remember 342 kanji. However, may I recommend adding a repetition-based system, preferably for the incorrect answers, or a port to other flashcard apps like Anki. Overall it was a great app, and I feel that the developers are doing a great job. I would love it if you added an overall kanji test that has been learnt or something along that line, but other than that, I hope you consider this, and well done developers! Keep up the great work!

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).
