Needs English Version

I’ve used this app for a while, and I’m trying to look for the settings that can switch the language to English. Either I’m not able to find it or there’s no English setting…so can you please make an English version or a setting to make the text English??

Pretty Good

This app is pretty good! But there’s a little bug. At the “playlists” part, there’s a thing at the bottom that says, “how to keep playlists?” I clicked it, and everything was Japanese, and it wanted me to signup for something and I didn’t even know what it was. Please fix this.

Good app for j-music fans

NicoBox is an awesome app for fans of Japanese music like Vocaloid or j-pop. Nothing compares in terms of availability and sound quality. However, English support is greatly lacking. If you can manage to navigate the UI, it’s well worth it as a supplement to another more mainstream music platform.
