What are users saying about WriteKana: Kana Coach!

A70%
by A####:

I don't like having to shake my device to erase! Please put an erase button or add double tap to erase... also the set up isn't that easy to follow, please make this a bit more user friendly, I'm still not quite sure how to freely remove and replace the stencil. Other, the write mode is decent, the exploring mode really needs improvement. Yes, I'm more harsh because this is a paid app, I would like to see this app more user friendly with buttons that actually mean something...

R70%

This was great on my phone, but for some reason the writing is laggy on my 2013 Nexus 7. I have to write very slowly or the app doesn't track my finger correctly

More TLC in this app than any other. Author wants ppl to master calligraphy. Updates often. A technical triumph. An artful masterpiece.
