Kana - Kana is a free Java MIDlet for mobile phones that enables you to learn Japanese Hiragana characters and allows to convert strings in Latin script to Hiragana.
Because of very modest requirements (it only requires MIDP 1.0/CLDC 1.0) it should run on practically any Java-enabled mobile phone that has about 60 kB free memory to store the MIDlet.
In the Learn mode the program shows you first a Hiragana character and afterwards reveals the "meaning" / the pronounciation written in normal Latin letters, as can be seen on the first two screenshots:
This way the program goes through all the 70+ Hiragana characters, but every time in another random order. Of course you can stop at any time you like and leave the program. If you answer correctly "Yes" and "No" after each character is reveiled the program can show you on a summary page at the end how good you were.
In the Convert mode as shown in the second two screenshots the MIDlet first asks for a string in Latin script and then converts it to Hiragana. If there are combinations of Latin letters that do not match any Hiragana they are just copied as such. Caution: The conversion is just an approximation and thus sometimes not correct. If it is important consult your resident Japanese instead!
The MIDlet is probably most useful for somebody who has already some knowledge and knows many of the Hiragana characters, but needs to "drill" to learn them all and memorize them well.

Easy words Easy words - I wrote this application when I got my K750i to experiment with java mobile development. As I was preparing for the GRE I thought something that would help me learn difficult English words frequently appearing in that test might be a good start. At first I wrote a simple dictionary letting the user search and browse about 1200 words. Later I included a cute game
