KANATEST is a great web app for learners who want to practice reading hiragana and katakana. The goal is to write the correct romaji reading for as many kana as possible within a sixty-second time limit. The design is clear and simple: green kana are those that you got right, red kana are those that you got wrong, and the blue kana indicates which character you are currently working on. Once you complete a round, your score is kept at the bottom of the screen so you can try to beat your previous score in an additional round. The fast pace and pleasant design makes this a fun way to practice reading kana. It is probably best for people who have already learned all the hiragana and katakana characters, but want to increase their reading speed.
