iKana touch

Lets learn Hiragana and Katakana!

iKana touch is the fun and easy way to learn Hiragana and Katakana, Japan’s two phonetic alphabets. We’ve put together some great features to help you memorise, speak, read and write the characters right on your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad.

Easily browse through all the Hiragana and Katakana characters which we’ve organised into sets to make them easy to practice. You can also build your own practice set and review characters you’ve answered incorrectly in the tests.

View stroke animations for each kana, hear them pronounced by a native speaker and try drawing them right on the screen.

Feature highlights

Flash cards

iKana touch features simple, easy to read flash cards with example words and the romaji for each kana. You can flip over the cards to reveal the stroke order animation and stroke count.


Writing Practice

Repetition is one of the surefire ways of commiting kana to memory. iKana touch lets you write out each character as many times as you want, while watching the stroke animation to make sure you are not making any mistakes.
