We value our customers' satisfaction and don't want you to make a wrong purchase. Here are a few things to consider before you buy:

• The handwriting recognition requires correct stroke order, though it allows a few incorrect strokes for some kanji. Please do not buy this app if you are not familiar with kanji radicals.

• Most parts of the app are in hiragana/katakana only. Please do not buy it if you can't read them.
