Google Play Reviews

  1. guest-avatar

    It's the best Katakana learning app, cause it's so easy and simple. It concentrates on the important parts and doesn't try to come up with clever nonsensical learning methods. Problem is it instantly crashes now in Android 9. The hiragana version works though. Hope you can fix it. - reinstalling fixed that for me

  2. guest-avatar

    Like its hiragana counterpart, this is a great tool for learning. Its feedback for learning purposes is less good, and easily mistaken for inconsistent touchscreen behavior, though. It also has a couple of bugs, with no updates since 2003. That's why this only gets four stars, while the hiragana version gets five.

  3. guest-avatar



    Simple and straightforward. This app, and the hiragana one, helped me tremendously in learning each character and what order the strokes go in.

  4. guest-avatar

    This app is not opening in my phone maybe it doesn't support see in full display view in larger phones

  5. guest-avatar

    Best draw kana app I've used for the draw function, and also a good learning tool. It gradually reduces the amount of help you get as you get the character right.

  6. guest-avatar

    Love the hiragana version! Was looking forward to starting on katakana but this version always crashes on start in Android 9! Please fix!

  7. guest-avatar

    the best app i have found to teach how to write katakana. It adjusts to your needs by getting harder or easier.

  8. guest-avatar

    For learnong Katakana this app is the best.

  9. guest-avatar

    Instantly closes when I open it. Hope this gets fixed soon.

  10. guest-avatar



    warning/error message made for old Android version will you fix it

  11. guest-avatar

    Chrashes on opening. Old app, last update was in 2013

  12. guest-avatar

    Crashes on open. Moto x4 on Android 9.

  13. guest-avatar

    OnePlus 6 - app continuously crashing 🙄

  14. guest-avatar

    Fixing the app was excellent :(

  15. guest-avatar

    Does not open. Android 9.0

  16. guest-avatar

    Jamie Capdevilla Santiago


    Simple, but amazing

  17. guest-avatar

    Please update for Android 9 , it not open

  18. guest-avatar

    Ignore the last user. They are the lazy ones not seeing that one section is for writing romaji and another is for the actual kana, plus wo and wa is not missing. I recommend this app for people who already a basic grasp at kana. This app helps your brain to recognize them faster which is essential for building better reading comprehension.

  19. guest-avatar

    Have nothing bad to say about this one. Easy to learn and very useful. Been writing katakana for some time but this helped me to know the correct stroke order. Some guy said hiragana writing test is easy and this is not. I disagree, it's the other way around. This one I finished in a heartbeat...hiragana is giving me headaches.

  20. guest-avatar

    Arno van der Weijden


    I completed the hiragana counterpart of this app and I really liked it. This app is great as well except for the writing test. It is WAY too sensitive. I can't even write a character that is shown and for some reason it just skips entire lines and assumes you did it correctly. Really strange. The hiragana app's written tests work fine. I can film it if requested as trouble shooting feedback.

  21. guest-avatar

    Contrary to how the unpopular reviews say it assumes you already know the characters, what the app does is introduce you to a small set of characters until you decide you are full comfortable with them, and then u may select others. You learn by repetition: seeing the characters, or writing them in romanji. Always been my favorite app :)

  22. guest-avatar

    Courtney McDowell


    Not only does this app do a good job of teaching the kana, it also teaches stroke order which is something my Japanese teacher hasn't focused much on. My only complaint is the lack of a mute option.

  23. guest-avatar

    The exercises I feel are very effective, and are simple to answer because of the great clarity in design. I'd like to point out, however, that for the exercise of "Choose the katakana", under the "Vowels, k & s", ソ does not ever come up; and if it does, not frequently enough. In the other two exercises, it seems to show up just fine.

  24. guest-avatar

    The only reason it didn't get 5 stars is when you're learning how to write the kana, there's a glitch on the su character. Other than that, best app out there. I taught myself katakana in less than a day!

  25. guest-avatar

    On the Hiragana version of the app, it tells me that tsu with a double-slash (ten-ten) is pronounced "du." In the Katakana version, it tells me that tsu with a ten-ten is pronounced "zu." Can you please just make up your mind, because that isn't helping me learn. Other than that mishap, the app is fun and does help improve my kana remembering skills. Thank you!

  26. guest-avatar

    Great app, i learn really fast with it. I practice when I am bored and in bed before I go to sleep. it is kind of addicting. Is there a reason why "so" doesn't apear in the first Katakana Vowels, k&s??

  27. guest-avatar

    Toni McRobberts


    When ya get somethin wrong it repeats."It assumes"Well not really try the writing lesson and then write the characters in a notebook five times.I love.I completly know Hiragana... now next is Katakana.

  28. guest-avatar

    Such a good app! I started with the Hiragana and learnt it in just over a week. I don't bother with the flash cards and don't waste time on the Romanji but I love that the app sounds the word and then allows you to draw it following the correct stroke pattern. I learn by doing and this definitely makes it stick. I'm finding the Katakana more difficult (which I've heard is the same for most people) but this app is definitely making it ALOT easier. I have also recommended it to everyone in my Japanese class!

  29. guest-avatar

    Rosalia Holden-Barstow


    The app is good and accurate but i personally find it too sensetive. If you draw the line etc a little bit long which is easy to do, especially on a small phone you get it wrong and have to keep trying it until you get it right even ig you feel like you know it

  30. guest-avatar

    Lawrence Whitfield


    I personally started with choosing how to write the characters whenever I was bored. After getting used to the stroke order, I did matching, before finally doing the write in romaji form. After repeated practice, you can start to read foreign words on Japanese!

  31. guest-avatar

    Thanks for this great app i learned katakana and with your hiragana version I learned hiragana xD thanks to the repetitive nature i can now also distinguish the sounds when I watch Japanese media so on that note I'd like request and similar version for bopomofo if you would indulge me xD

  32. guest-avatar

    Would be better if the writing exercise allowed you to finish drawing the character and then click submit. As it is an accidental tap of the screen results in an incorrect answer

  33. guest-avatar

    One of the best app to learn katakana. I highly recommend this app if you want a refresher in katakana. It doesn't teach you why shi + yo is sho or ni + yu is nyu it teach you some things but this app is more memorizing. But still a really good app.

  34. guest-avatar

    Perpetual Regrets


    The last time I had tried to learn these was years ago. I had been struggling with them when I stopped, but after using this i've gotten a lot better than where I left off.

  35. guest-avatar

    Been memorizing hiragana and katakana very well with these apps. Too bad there's no romaji to hiragana/katakana without letting us see the way it's written beforehand, as if it were a test, basically. Still great!

  36. guest-avatar

    I tried about 7 or 8 other kana learning apps. And hiragana learn and katakana learn are by far my favorite. in about 2 weeks ive successfully learned both writing systems and i was just screwing around. I really like the groups that the kana are seperated into making it easier to learn than integrating the similar kana all in one so you do no become confused right off the bat.

  37. guest-avatar

    Glenn Cortez Jr.


    My mistakes on writing each katakana are the reason y i memorized each letter or texts.. coz when u get wrong on a stroke.. u will be back again to write it again.. annoying but great

  38. guest-avatar

    This app learns your level of understanding based on your responses and focuses on what you need to become proficient. As a result, you learn faster compared to using apps that simply cycle through the kana. It also combines listening, reading, and writing for a more complete understanding.

  39. guest-avatar

    Let's you learn the characters through use of flash cards for recognition, practice identifying them through use of romaji characters, and practice writing them. Through all the options you must get them right to proceed, so it helps hammer it in and force you to recognize them all. Would be nice if there was an option for "practice all" characters, too.

  40. guest-avatar

    Provides 3 separate ways to reinforce same Katakana characters and sounds. Also, asks again more frequently on wrong answers to correct mistakes faster

  41. guest-avatar

    The part that teaches you how to write is so cleverly designed. It gives just enough hints, and teaches correct stroke order and direction. You can learn katakana from scratch with this. I knew about 5 kana when I began, but I learned a lot from the "reviewing" function--you can just guess and use process of elimination, and before you know it, you've absorbed a bunch of kana. So don't listen to the review that says it doesn't work. It's an excellent design.

  42. guest-avatar

    Lightweight, effective, and fast! The other apps in this series are similarly built. Only gripe is the ui is a little non compliant, but still functional.

  43. guest-avatar

    Don't listen to negative reviews, I've successfully used this app and the hiragana counterpart to learn kana without zero prior knowledge. However you should also read on an article about why, how and when is kana used and some extra rules for katakana script that this app doesn't cover. But that's fine, that's not the aim of this app, this app teaches you to write and recognize katakana and it does that impressively well.

  44. guest-avatar

    Does not introduce the katakana. It assumes you already know them and only helps you to remember them. That's not learning. Instant uninstall for me.

  45. guest-avatar

    I start right next to the character, it shows this, then says I'm wrong?? And sometimes its wrong and says I'm right?? Hate the writing section. Its really frustrating.

  46. guest-avatar

    This is an app to learn katakana, assuming you understand what katagana is and how it works. Is you want to do either of the latter statements you need to use a different app. ( for anyone looking for that kind of app look for tae Kim's guide to learning Japanese ). This app is a godsend for learning the katakana symbols though. Possibly the best app for that purpose.

  47. guest-avatar

    Great app. Love the reinforcement when you make a mistake, the difficulty progression into recalling the symbol entirely without hints, and all the modes for really getting the kana to stick.

  48. guest-avatar

    The app just won't open. I tried uninstalling it and then re installing it, but it just won't work. I don't know if its me or what, but please can someone fix!

  49. guest-avatar

    I really love this app, my only gripe, is that "so" is missing, from choose the kana exercise. If fixed, 5 stars.

  50. guest-avatar

    Excellent app for memorising and recognition but drawing the characters is much too sensitive as I sometimes try to draw a straight line and it goes off in another direction :)

  51. guest-avatar

    Gordon McGladdery


    Learned Katakana comfortably with casual study over 3 days (while travelling in Japan). Amazed at how almost effortless it was. Absolute gem of an app. No bells & whistles, just effective and fast memory tools from all necessary perspectives. I'd LOVE to see this exact format for other languages/subjects.

  52. guest-avatar

    This seems to be for people who are near to know it, keep guessing then bam, instant Learn. Come on, Im like 2.

  53. guest-avatar

    I'm closer than ever for reading japanese and turning romaji to kana not Only is it fun but it's very easy!

  54. guest-avatar

    Jonathan Davidson


    All you need. Just use a it a couple times a day and try and get a perfect score and you will find you can read katakana easily. If recommend learning to write them by hand on paper but the application shows you the strike order, which is important.

  55. guest-avatar

    Angelica Guzman


    Might be difficult if you have no kana knowledge at first, but once you learn some this is the best app for quick practice

  56. guest-avatar

    Needs updating. Android 10 is complaining its out of date. All the time.

  57. guest-avatar

    My husband learned Katakana with this app. Reporting 1 bug: missing SO in the Vowels, K, S in the exercise.

  58. guest-avatar

    This and the hiragana counter part is by far the greatest resource i found anywhere yo learn these respectively.

  59. guest-avatar

    Thank u thank u so much..! I was able to learn katakana in one day..!!! I was struggling so much with it b4...! Aaahh..!! Thankq 4 making this great app..!! :*

    This app is what really helped me learn the kanas since i am styding on my own. SERIOUSLY thank you guys for creating it!!

  61. guest-avatar

    Vijak Kaewjamnong


    I dont like this app because it doesnt tell you what katakana symbols are what so when you start of you have to guess

  62. guest-avatar

    This app is the reason i passed my Japanese course. The harsh and sensitive way it catches your writing is necessary and in the end helped me memorize stroke order in the best way.

  63. guest-avatar

    Nikolai Lehtinen


    Fulfills its purpose as a training program better than other apps that I tried

  64. guest-avatar

    Does what it is supposed to, and taught me many katakana characters in no time! Really cool, deserves definetely more and more downloads! Ive downloaded many katakana apps, but non of them was satisfing, but this one.

  65. guest-avatar

    Salvador Alvarez


    Doesn't introduce the katakana for so nor wo on the chose the katakana sections. After this is fixed Ill give it 5 stars. Is great for learning this syllabary.

  66. guest-avatar

    You'll learn and be able practice how to read and write the katakana characters with this app. Would be awesome to use on devices with soft touch pens like in Galaxy Note

  67. guest-avatar

    I learnt kata kana surprisingly fast. the different activities also helped. would recommend

  68. guest-avatar

    Anastasia Shuba


    I love that this app does not require any special permissions. Works well, and is very helpful with learning the characters :)

  77. guest-avatar

    I was wondering if you could do an app for kanji or if it would be too much?

  78. guest-avatar

    At last....its easy for me to read all the roads and shops in tokyo!!!

  79. guest-avatar

    Great for memorizing kana. The handwriting recognition could be better tuned though.

  80. guest-avatar

    Took a couple hours to learn and great for reminders down the road. Thanks for this amazing free app!

  81. guest-avatar

    This app is really smoothe and never crashes even on my crappy phone!

  82. guest-avatar

    I am loving this. A great companion to my lessons. I've begun at the beginning and am amazed how much I've learned. Ditto for the hiragana app

  83. guest-avatar

  85. guest-avatar

    Excellent way to revise while on the move. Great methods for revision.

  86. guest-avatar

    I finished the Hiragana version of this and loved it. And this one also helped me a lot!

  87. guest-avatar

    Provides several different, intuitive and fun ways to learn katakana. Recommended alongside the hiragana app.

  88. guest-avatar

    Both hiragana & katakana learning apps have help very much, thank you.
