I have always wanted to build a free website to do casual and easy reviewing of Japanese materials, and this hackathon finally gave me that chance. I didn't think about it until I saw a tutorial for flashcards, but once I remembered the idea, I was all for it. I love keeping lists, and I've needed a way to keep my notes organized without needing money. These flashcards gave me just that opportunity, so I took it.
What it does
It simply provides numerous tips and tricks to the Japanese language and many flashcards to help study kanji, hiragana, katakana, vocabulary, verbs, phrases, and adjectives. I will be working on it a lot more, even after the hackathon, but right now that is all there is. It also has the option of creating customized flashcards easily, as often a curriculum is lacking personalization. Also written in are tips and tricks, definitions for various categories, so that the learner has a reference. It can't be used to learn Japanese alone, but is a wonderful consolidation, refresher, and way to concrete information in your mind.

What's next for Japanese Flashcards
I plan on adding dozens more flashcards for every purpose, as well as grammar and verbs. There are at least a thousand kanji to cover, so I plan on breaking it into more categories than it is presently. I plan on adding a lot more grammar rules, as once you know them, there are no exceptions. For right now, however, I simply need to add all of the cards necessary.
