Kana Flip - The Smart Way to learn Hiragana & KatakanaHomeHow It WorksScreenshotsFAQFeedback

Q: What's a FAQ?
A: It stands for Frequently Asked Questions. I post a bunch of stuff that may answer your questions. (Or may just be interesting to no one else but me :P)

Q: What's the difference between Kana Flip and Kanji Flip?
A: Kana Flip teaches you hiragana and katakana, with a few kanji to get your feet wet. Kanji Flip contains all 2230 kanji from the Japanese Language Proficiency Test with nearly 4700 examples. So once you learn all your kana you can graduate to the really interesting stuff that you need to read Japanese properly.

Q: How come the kana never all pile up in the Ancient area?
A: Please realize that the goal of learning (and this program) is to continually strengthen your mind. There is no such thing as "finished". The kana in a set will never all pile up in the Ancient area. After you exhaust all the untested kana, the oldest previously tested kana will be put back into testing rotation -- even if you answer it correctly. This is done on purpose.

Q: I love Kana Flip, now can you add ... ?
A: This is pretty much how most emails/comments go. The answer is: email me and I'll really try to figure out if I can do it. Mostly if I can't do it, it's due to screen real estate, not lack of desire. If that sounds like an excuse, you program an iPhone app without making it cluttered, ugly, or over bloated.

Q: Will you add the features I demand if I threaten you with a bad review?
A: No. Threats of a bad review or demands of any kind will simply be ignored.

Q: Are you going to put out Chinese Flip, Spanish Flip, etc...
A: Yes. Spanish will likely be next. Chinese after that. Italian too.

Q: Obviously you don't love Japanese like I do, because you'd NEVER put out Spanish Flip if you did!
A: Not true. My program works equally well for other languages.

Q: OK, so how about a GAME like Kana Flip with even more fun stuff?
A: Very likely. With far less seriousness and high scores and such!!! SWEET!

Q: I think I found some mistakes. What should I do?
A: Write me an email and I'll be glad to add the fix into the next update.

Q: OK, this FAQ really isn't answering my questions... What's your favorite band?
A: Iron Maiden.
