StickyStudy Japanese

Stickystudy
From the developer:

I wrote this app for me in 2010 to get me through JLPT and it has been updated ever since. If I needed a feature, I added it. If it bugged, I unbugged. Most of my Japanese was probably learnt (on rush-hour Tokyo trains) using this very app. Made by a learner for a learner. Thanks for your support!

◆ Writing Tutor
View 6500+ kanji/kana interactive stroke order animations and be guided how to write each one. When ready, test your skills in study mode.

◆ Full Dictionary
Drawing from a database of over a million entries including place names, given names, company names, kanji and examples. Search using romaji, kana or SKIP. Full breakdown of kanji showing radicals, particles, similar kanji and compound nouns. Example sentences are broken down phrase by phrase, word by word.

◆ Audio
8000 words spoken by a native speaker (as opposed to "not quite right" synthesised audio) covering the complete N1-N5 vocabulary. Auto-repeat audio for perfect pronunciation.

◆ SRS Leitner Study Method + Calendar = Awesomeness
Just set a future date and let the scheduler tell you when and what to study, everyday. No setup required.

◆ Translate
Copy/paste Japanese text and have the words auto-translated into detailed flashcards.

◆ RSS News Feed
Read today's headlines in Japanese, translated into furigana and English definitions ready for study.

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 N1 (yes, I was there) using this app. I speak, read and write Japanese fluently and I'm an overactive developer (nearly 40 years) who just can't turn his computer off and lead a normal life.
