Japanese Hiragana & Katakana Review is a kana character review tool aimed at upper-beginner and intermediate Japanese students. The application allows you to review your ability to recognize each of the 46 hiragana or katakana characters from visual and audio cues. Performance is ranked by speed, mistakes made and review difficulty. The application will also highlight the your weakest kana characters for further study.

Features include voice samples from native Japanese speakers, Rumble Pak and DS Motion support. In addition, the application will greet you appropriately depending on the time of day.

It was placed 1st in the NEO Summer Coding Compo 2009, APP section and ranked 1st.
