Hiragana Flash and Katakana Flash are iPhone apps designed to help you read the Japanese hiragana alphabet. These study aids deliver an intuitive flash-card style presentation. Each card presents a hiragana or katakana character on the front of a card and the romanized pronunciation on the back.

Designed to be simple and elegant in form and function, Hiragana Flash and Katakana Flash offer a minimal, typography-driven design that is free of distracting images and cultural clichés.

Hiragana Flash and Katakana Flash make studying easy by eliminating unnecessary buttons and complicated menus. Simply select a character set from the app’s home screen, swipe the cards to move forward and back, and flip a card to view the back with a single tap.
