* Reviews *

"The only way I'd be more satisfied with this app is if it could just transmit the info directly into my brain."

"There can be no question that this should be regarded as the number 1 kanji tool on the app store, bar none."

"The kanji stroke animations alone are worth the price of the app"

"Best app for building vocab. Period."

"This app blew me away."

"Most complete kanji and vocab [app] I've seen."

"It’s obvious that a lot of thought and time went into the design of this app."

"This is the best, I have wasted my money on the others ... love it love it love it"

"If you're serious about Japanese, you need this app."

"I cannot tell you how well designed this app is"

◆ Writing Practice

View 6500+ kanji stroke order animations and be guided on how to write each and every one of them with the built in trainer. When ready, test your skills in study mode.

I'm Justin. I moved to Japan in 2002 and I'm married to my Japanese wife (lovingly called "Spellchecker"). I've taken the JLPT tests up to L1 (yes, I was there) using this app. I speak, read and write Japanese fluently and I'm an overactive developer who really should relax a little more.

What's New in Version 3.8


-Import data using the CSV format (4 or less fields per line).
-Import your vocabulary lists from many other Japanese apps. Just copy and paste the text into the import box.
-Smart import. If some fields are missing, StickyStudy will use the dictionary to fill the gaps ('auto populate'). You can even import just a list of words or kanji without any readings or English and leave the rest to the app.

(The import formats have slightly changed, see below).


-Save to different decks. If the 'Save to saved' option is disabled in settings, pressing 'save' will give you a deck list to choose a destination.
-Move stickies between decks. As with 'save', a deck list will pop up to give you one-touch sticky transfer.
-A new delete button has been added to the 'edit' view.
-Delete is now available during study.


-Dictionary [uk] entries (words that are usually used with kana even though they have kanji. For example, ありがとう) now show the kana as the question and the kanji as a footnote in the answer.
-30,000 example sentences double checked/corrected. Only 120,000 to go..


-SRS upgrade. Red cards that have been studied before but remained red now have a higher priority during the next study session.
-'Wrong' is now displayed as a percentage rather than a number.
-List view searching is about 30% faster.
-You can now search for grammatical terms in browse ([n], [v], etc). Just start your search with '['.
-When saving examples, [eg] is now saved in the first pronunciation field instead of the second. More logical.
-'Remove duplicates' bug fixed.
- Many, many tweaks.

There is a small group of like minded kanji geeks out there who have been simply AWESOME in helping me spot bugs and provide ideas for development. You know who are. ありがとう。


Notes on import. There are now 3 types:

1. Standard CSV. Four fields per line, one sticky per line.
2. Tab separated fields. Four fields per line, one sticky per line.
3. One field per line, one blank line between between every four fields.

What is smart import? All 3 import formats require 4 fields. If there are only 2 or 3 fields, the app will try and guess the missing fields. Caveat: the first and last field must be a question and answer.
If only 1 field is present (the Japanese), all 3 fields will be added.
