ANNOUNCING! iKanji touch for iPhone and iPod Touch

Hey guys, I've been involved with developing this nifty little program for a while, and it's my pleasure to announce that it's finally available for download!

Announcing iKanji Touch 1.0 for iPhone and iPod Touch

The mobile follow-up to iKanji for Mac OS X, Thinkmac Software's iKanji touch allows users to study Japanese kanji characters with unprecedented ease - anywhere, anytime.

An intuitive user interface and a variety of learning tools make iKanji touch the perfect ool for kanji study


The program's comprehensive database covers over 2000 kanji commonly taught in the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) as well as Japanese school grade kanji from levels 1 to 6. More than 16,000 example compounds and over 700 stroke animations are provided to aid memorization and provide context for kanji usage.

iKanji touch's intuitive user interface allows kanji to be quickly searched or browsed by grade and JLPT level. Quizzes test users on kanji meanings, readings, stroke order and compounds at each level of study, while users wishing to focus their study can easily add individual kanji to a customized practice set.

The spaced repetition-based Teach Me mode tests users at varying intervals based on their previous ability to correctly recall kanji readings, meanings and compounds. The more successful users are at recalling the kanji, the less often they're tested - meaning users spend more time on the characters they need to know.

Pricing and Availability:

iKanji touch is available for download and purchase in the iTunes App Store. It is priced at $9.99 USD in the US, £5.99 in the UK and €7.99 Euro in the EU. ThinkMac Software also sells iKana touch for the iPhone and iKanji for Mac OS X.
