Best iPhone / iPod touch / iPad Application for Learning Kana (Hiragana / Katakana)

Learning Hiragana and Katakana is necessary to anyone learning Japanese, and it does not come easy. The easiest way to learn Kana, in my opinion, is with the iKana touch application for iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad. This is a completely endorsed review so it is completely honest :)

When you start up iKana you see several different study groups.

My favorite feature is the speed tests. It’s by far the best way to learn Kana because you always have your iPhone handy! Speed tests go through each Kana and allow you to guess as to what the meaning is.

If you get it right, you see this:

If you get it wrong, the application pauses so you can see what the correct answer is next time around.

If you want to get a good grasp on the Kana before starting, you can flip through some cards and see some of their uses.

This is how I learned all my Hiragana and (almostttt) all of my Katakana. :) I highly recommend you check it out! iKana can be found in the Apple App store or at this website.
