Thank you for Skritter. This is one of the best flash card services I have ever used.
I typically use Android for doing my lessons and the web based service for looking at stats and managing lists. Recently I have turned on including writing kana for word with kana attached. However I am finding writing か to be extraordinarily frustrating. Typically I have to write the first stroke 5 or 6 times before it gets recognized. Even when the guide appears and I trace over it exactly it will still reject the stroke most of the time. I once made a mistake and tried to write て and the system immediately recognized it as the first stroke of か.
Is there something wrong with the mapping? Or am I being really dumb? Are there some か writing strategies I should follow? I have no trouble writing almost any other kana or kanji part.
