Needs a manual review mode like the kanji app.

I bought all the lessons, and I’d have to say that the price is relatively cheap considering the fact that I’m able to learn the fundamental basics of Japanese. This app uses spaced repetition and active recall (the two most scientifically proven techniques of learning and memorising), which is a big plus for me because I was able to learn both hiragana and katakana in 2 weeks (on and off). I was able to communicate at an extremely novice level to my peers after completing level 3. However, I’d like to see a manual review mode, where I’m able to select what I want to review, similar to that of the kanji app. I can’t seem to rely on the app 100% of the time when it comes to the daily reviews. I'm certain that I have few holes in my understanding at levels 3 and 4, and I’d like to clarify my knowledge by manually picking what needs review. It’d be tiresome and demotivating to go through all the lessons again. I’m usually pretty on and off with Japanese, and since I was a complete beginner, I’d like to know where I’m at.

Awesome for beginning Japanese

Have been searching around for app to learn Japanese and this is the best one I've found. It teaches you how to write the characters correctly, instead of only reading all the time. I've found this extremely helpful for remembering the characters. You get a few free lessons, then pay to open up the rest, but it's inexpensive and I've found it's worth it. You can trial each section of learning before paying, so you know what you're getting when you open up the rest. Great app.

Perfect for beginners but...

As the title says, it’s a great app for beginners who just started to learn the Japanese language. It provides most of the necessary grammar and words to converse with your Japanese friends. It also serve as a good refresher for those who learned the language but did not practice it on a daily basis such as myself. In less than 2 weeks of finishing the lessons, I would say it reminded me about 60% of what I learned from my Japanese courses back in University.

However, I also expected more from this app to be bug free and have more lessons. Specifically speaking, sometimes I notice the voice to say something unrelated to what I had correctly constructed my sentence (usually the sentence construction right after the example step). I also notice a few of the grammar to not have the correct choice of Japanese words to be picked up from to form the correct sentence.

In terms of lessons, I was expecting there to be lessons on past affirmative and negative tenses to teach beginners how to say stuff like “I ate pie last Wednesday” or “I did not had apple last weekend” and so on. Also, to have lessons about thoughts like “I think that is a great idea” would also seem beneficial.

Hopefully these changes would be fix in the next update with additional content with no extra charges.
