Pocket Kana for iPhone and iPod Touch was approved yesterday by Apple and is now available in the App Store, both in French and English.
Pocket Kana is a simple application to learn the Japanese Characters. It was inspired by my son’s Tsumikis (Wooden Block) he has to learn his Japanese Characters. It’s using simple graphics associated with each character so it’s easy to associate one with another.
Also the word corresponding to that graphic is translated which might teach you basic vocabulary.
