My students have been greatly looking forward to the new kana functionality in Skritter, but were somewhat disappointed when they found out that words containing kanji are still tested using the kanji, instead of the kana reading alone. They use Skritter mainly to learn new words, not necessarily new kanji.
Could full kana functionality be implemented?

What you’ve described above does sound very reasonable. The biggest challenge is figuring out whether we can find an elegant solution that doesn’t require another setting, or how something like this would be handled on Japanese accounts. I’ve added the request to our list of potential future features and we’ll certainly spend some time thinking about ways to implement something like this.
Thanks for the feedback!

My students will be really looking forward to that feature then!
I think an extra setting would be the best solution, so that people can choose whether to answer in kana or kanji.

I second this. Words that are commonly spelled using kana should have the option of showing up in kana.
