iKanji released

ThinkMac Software has announced iKanji 1.0, a brand new application for learning Japanese kanji characters on a Mac. iKanji features over 2200 of the most common kanji characters as well as nearly 20,000 example words. The software is designed as a helpful tool for anyone attempting to learn Japanese, offering an intuitive, friendly interface that takes full advantage of Core Animation to provide users with an engaging experience. It features editable flash cards that can be used to learn anything from Kanji readings, English meanings of characters or stroke animations.

Also included are three different styles of multiple choice tests to help memorize different aspects of Kanji. The tests cover, English translations of kKanji characters, Kanji reading identification and stroke animations of characters. Each test can be taken with any subset of the many kanji supplied and users may easily build up a practice set of kanji to study and test themselves on.

iKanji is available from the ThinkMac web store for $31 and requires Mac OS X 10.5 to run.

    Really new?

    Didn't this already exist, or was it just in a beta stage earlier? Anyway it really looks like a nice app... Let's hope they realise that making an iPhone version could really be helpful to people.
