Kanjilicious is a beautiful and innovative mobile app that games your Japanese by optimizing your memorization of Japanese characters—hiragana, katakana and kanji. The game itself tracks your language progress through Kindergarten, first and second grade characters—with more grades coming each quarter. Practice your readings of hiragana, katakana and kanji quickly and efficiently with straight-forward 20 character levels, leveraging gamification strategies to collect points and rank on leaderboards, and challenge your friends and classmates for high scores. This app is suitable for kids as young as kindergarten, but challenging enough to sustain usage through high school, college and beyond.
We are also spreading out into some smaller projects that support beginners in using hiragana and katakana in the real world. Our new Hiragana Sticker Pack for iMessage is a very simple way to begin to practice vocabulary, and your first new characters, in iMessage on your iPhone. You can download both the Kanjilicious app and the Hiragana Sticker Pack from the buttons below.
Kanjilicious is an app for testing your knowledge of Japanese kanji by prompting you to recall readings of Japanese characters. We augment that with gamification and leaderboards to quantify and track your progress through grade levels.
