Kanji Renshuu (漢字練習) is a flashcard application to help you practice Japanese Kanji characters. A simple Spaced Repetition System (SRS) is adopted to schedule and organize your Kanji practice.

Kanji cards are labeled with 5 different colors from red to lime green. This color shows the difficulty level of a particular card according to your personal practice performance. A card's review schedule interval and appearance frequency during practice will be adjusted according to this level.

There are 3007 most frequently used Kanji characters registered in Kanji Renshuu database, each are indexed and given an English keyword according to the book "Remembering the Kanji" by James W. Heisig.

Notable features:
✓ Simple, straightforward UI.
✓ Simple, adjustable SRS to keep your practice focused and efficient.
✓ Color labeling as a clear performance indicator for individual cards.
✓ Performance graph to keep track of your daily practice progress.
✓ Search Kanji cards by English, Kanji, readings, or SKIP code (e.g. "1-3-5").
✓ Filter Kanji cards by Jōyō grade and JLPT level estimation.
✓ Backup and restore cards data to external storage.
✓ Kanji stroke order diagram.

The development of Kanji Renshuu is inspired by many existing flashcard applications. Concepts and ideas are adapted and adjusted to suit the developer's learning needs. If Kanji Renshuu doesn't fit your needs, you might want to consider these alternatives:

✓ Anki: Notably one of the most popular SRS flashcard app.
✓ StickyStudy (iOS): SRS flashcard app with color labeling for individual cards.
✓ JA Sensei: A complete suite for learning Japanese with Kanji quiz feature.
✓ JFCards: Simple, straightforward flashcard app, but with no built-in SRS.

    This app is a flashcard style leaning tool and it's really well put together with so many words and phrases to least.

    It's good, and I like the interface. I'm even considering switching from Anki to this. One suggestion I'd want to make is providing common compounds the kanji are used in...and maybe suggesting which readings to remember, based on what's commonly used (like what KanjiDamage recommends). But otherwise, I really like it. I just wish I could import my progress from Anki easily. =]]

    Close to being the perfect study app. It's only real flaw is that it doesn't really shuffle the cards, but almost always presents them in the same order. If I could make a suggestion, too, I'd love to see the non-kanji primitives also added to the list. I'm thinking that if you study all the radicals first then it would be easier to memorize randomly encountered kanji out of order. It would al

    Great app to learn kanji on the go. There is not much to be said about it. The card system works very well and the level system forces you to review thing you have previously learned. After all, knowledge is what you remember after you forget everything you've learned.
