Up until now, whenever I found a compounded word (made up of more than one kanji) that I didn't know, I'd look it up on my Japanese dictionary, and finding it, I wondered what each kanji on that word meant. Well, ShinKanji does that for me and more!
Basically, when it shows you a word definition, you are able to touch each individual component, see its meaning, and then come back to the original word. Not to mention, it shows animations for the stroke order for most kanji, and you can even zoom on the animation to see it better!
I don't know who the developer is, but I'm loving this app

Anyway, the stroke order animation is pretty cool, definitely something that I can use. But the rest of it seems (to me) to be a bit clunky. Maybe I have to use it a bit more to become more comfortable. Definitely worth a try, though, especially because it's free for a trial version.

Preferably the audio lessons. I've sort of skipped around learning on my own and don't have time to be trapped at a desk.
Will I still be able to download ... say the beginner lessons or survival phrases with the basic subscription?
