What is the best app to learn to write kanji alongside wanikani?

Hi, I want to learn to write kanji as well as learn them but I don’t know any good apps. Any recommendations would be appreciated!


this app is pretty good, and I believe it syncs with the WK api?


There is an Anki deck that has the kanji cards in the same order as Wanikani. It’s a few years old now so some kanji are out of order, but it’s still pretty solid.

Will link when I find it.

Edit: This is the one I use. [Version 1.05 | 2016-01-31] Anki deck for kanji writing practice - WaniKani / API And Third-Party Apps - WaniKani Community
It looks like it might be discontinued but there’s another one linked in the same thread that you could try too.

Ironically enough, Duolingo now has pretty decent support for learning kana and kanji, including stroke order.

Skritter has a pretty decent app that lets you practice writing kanji in an SRS format. They even have community-made WaniKani decks, so you could potentially practice writing kanji for the level you’re on. One of the things I liked about it was their iPad / Apple Pencil support. It’s a bit pricey for what it is, but I think right now they have a Black Friday half-off deal through Nov 27.

As iinchou mentioned, Duolingo actually recently upgraded their kanji support, which is pretty decent if you’re just looking to practice a bit of stroke order.

Kanji study is a good app for Kanji (not just strike order) and you can create custom levels based on the ones in Wanikani to follow the same order.

I does! And it’s free!
Love it, thanks for the recommendation :star_struck:

(They should really hire a designer though lol)

I only found a WK deck, a vocabulary one with ALL WK vocab, but I just want to learn how to write kanji ;.;

I use Japanese Kanji Study by Chase Colburn. Unfortunately it’s only available for Android. I use a galaxy tab for studying kanji on it (having a pen makes it way easier than using the finger)
