[Quick summary: StickyStudy is a comprehensive kanji/vocabulary flashcard app developed by me, since 2009. There are no ads or “Review me!” nonsense. There’s an In App Purchase section for extra goodies such as audio.]
The #1 Japanese flashcard app. Reading, writing, listening - all you'll ever need to make serious progress in your Japanese/JLPT studies.
Main Features (Full Version):
◆ Writing Practice
View 6500+ kanji stroke order animations and be guided on how to write each and every one of them with the built in trainer. When ready, test your skills in study mode.
Audio samples spoken by a native speaker (as opposed to "not quite right" synthesised audio) covering the complete N1-N5 vocabulary (around 8000 words). No extra downloads or internet connection required.
◆ Highly Detailed
All kanji, radicals, elements, words, compounds, similar looking kanji and examples are "tapable" linking you to something new. Drill down infinite layers and save words along the way.
Search 700,000 entries (including names) in English, Japanese or SKIP. Examples, radicals, audio - more complete than most standalone dictionaries. Save entries and create new decks easily.
◆ RSS News Feed
Read today's headlines in Japanese, auto-translated into flashcards.
Copy/paste Japanese text and have it translated into furigana and English definitions ready for study.
Complete kanji and vocabulary required for the JLPT exams (N1 to N5), school grade kanji (grades 1 to 9) and joyo kanji.

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 L1 (yes, I was there) using this app. I speak, read and write Japanese fluently and I'm an overactive developer who really should relax a little more.
