-Intelligent drilling system helps you lock down on wanted kanji and test yourself on whatever you want!
-Progress reports back to your list in Explore Mode for each Super Set so you can see your progress for each kanji
-A dictionary lies at the heart of the application, allowing you to search for kanji using kana, English, or the kanji itself!

Please note that in order to get the most out of this application, you will need to be able to read kana. If you can't, we might just have a solution for you *winkwink*, but in all seriousness if you can't write kana you have no business writing kanji.

Good start. Needs to show stroke order as this is a very import part of writing Kanji.
Very responsive developer. Responds to user requests and resolves issues promptly.
