K-Flash comes with all of the kanji orgainzed into card files. But you can extract kanji from those files to create your own custom ones!

Deck- and card-level scoring
With deck scoring turned ON, K-Flash shows your ratio of right guess to wrong guesses—updated in real time. Your final score gives you instant feedback on your progress on the current deck.
With card scoring turned ON, K-Flash stores a tally of right and wrong guesses for each individual kanji card. It uses this information when you create a custom deck based on your lowest scoring cards.
Show or hide any information
Just like paper flashcards, you don't see the answers until you "flip" the card. But unlike paper flashcards, K-Flash lets you control which information is shown on the answer side of the card. This gives you control over the cards' difficulty and focus. For example, you could hide the meanings but show the mnemonic phrase. Or, if you want to reduce clutter, you could hide the readings.
Customizable deck sizes
By default, there are 50 flashcards in each deck of the main card file. This is the recommended size based on the amount of cards that a person can typically "digest" at a time. But you can easily change the deck size1—beginners may prefer smaller decks at first, and advanced users may want the challenge of larger decks.
1. All decks in a card file must be the same size.
