Anyone know of any websites or software that can be used to practice writing hiragana with a tablet?

Nothing good, though you can try "Obenkyo" or "WriteKana".

Thank you. I've realized that simply using a trace sheet in Photoshop works well enough.

I just write them over and over and over and over on paper. Eventually they stick.

Also, you should attempt to write words and sentences with kana, and not just write the individual kana. It works your brain much harder, and they will eventually come much more "natural" that way, the same way you don't think about how an "a" looks like when you write a word with that letter.

Thanks. I was thinking of doing that last night. I'll try later.

My husband's been snapping up Japanese-related software left and right, and the only thing I've heard of even similar to this are DS games (he bought Kamken 3, but you need to know a bit to even play it).
He practices on post-it notes, over and over. He says stroke order is very important, but a lot of things that purport to teach you kana don't go over stroke order. He's got his kana down, now, and he's working on kanji (via the same method.)

Thanks. I actually worked it out the same night I posted this thread. I've been opening .pdf trace sheets in Photoshop and simply adding layers then using the brush tool to trace over them.

Your husband may or may not be interested in looking into "Tae Kim's Guide to Learning Japanese."

Cheers.

Back in the day we used to use pen and paper to master hiragana.
Oh, the kids these days.....
