Kanji Study is my ongoing project that tries to be a helpful and easy-to-use tool for learning Japanese kanji. Study with flashcards, customizable quizzes and writing challenges. Each kanji contains detailed information and many examples. The app provides a powerful search tool to find kanji by basic, stroke count and much more. You can also create custom sets that match your textbook or focus on the kanji you’re fighting the most.
The app is not completely free; However, the free version has no ads and offers unlimited study for hiragana, katakana, radical and apprentice kanji. The kanji search and ranking rankings are also completely unrestricted. The one-time upgrade opens up the remaining kanji study groups and lets you create your own custom set. It supports the continued development of this project.
Also, there is an add-on for the Outlier Essential Dictionary that includes a deep dive into etymology and a breakdown of kanji.
