iKana touch

ThinkMac Software
If you are studying Japanese then you will need to learn the two phonetic scripts called hiragana and katakana. iKana touch will make learning these much easier and more fun than traditional methods.

Even if you are just planning on learning a little Japanese before visiting Japan, being able to read kana will help you decipher many signs, menus and more.

iKana touch contains flash cards with stroke animations, example words and spoken sound clips. You can practice writing kana directly on the screen while watching a stroke order animation. Flash cards can be shuffled and you toggle whether rōmaji is shown or not.

iKana touch features a kana speed test, stroke order test and rōmaji replacement test. You can quickly build a practice set of characters to test yourself on, or review kana you incorrectly identified in a previous test.

We've included a beginner's dictionary with over 700 essential words you can easily browse and search.

What's new in version 2.7
iKana touch is now free to try with in-app purchases to unlock the full hiragana and katakana sets. If you purchased iKana touch 2.6 or earlier don't worry – you don't need to buy again, everything will remain unlocked for you.
