I also doubt that memorizing by sight is the best way to memorize kanji. Repetition by writing seems to work better for me.
If I weren't so lazy I would just make my own flashcards. The cards themselves are smaller than I had imagined. I needed both sets to find all of the first 100 Kanji taught in first year Japanese at Harvard (although I think 96 of these were in the first set). The cards do not have Kana to identify the Kanji, and what is worse uses (I think) Hepburn romanization, not the system used in Jorden and Chaplin that I am more familiar with, and is more logical. In other words they say "chi" and "ti". In any case, I would much prefer that they didn't use romanization at all, as I also need all the kana practice I can get too!
I have a free web app using Tokyo's SCSK corp's version 7 or 8 of MIT Curl ( [...] ) which will allow you to copy the character and get both a Henshall number and the UCS or Unicode value. That app is free at [...] but you will have to install the free MIT Curl browser plugin which is very safe and secure ( Curl is used for many financial app's used in major corporations often installed on laptops that arecarried from place to place by auditors and risk anaysts : very safe.)
If you want a free desktop version or a free mobile version ( Android or iOS ) just contact me at my retirement web site above and I will try to fit you into my very relaxed retirement schedule of learning Japanese and fiddling with software to help me retain what I learn. I also have a blog at the Curl users forum at communities.curl.com as the "Robert" tech blog.
