Amazing app for Japanese Study

I highly recommend this app! I've been using it for more than two years and it has been a game changers. It's designed well and has a lot of great features! I especially love the ability to save and organize vocabulary/example sentences into lists that I can go back review at anytime.

Fentastic app

App not displaying words correctly after iOS 11 upgrade. Please check and make changes.

Issue happening only when the word has characters less than 4. There is no issue with long words.

I like it but...

I’ve been using this app for more than over a year now and I honestly like it very much! But I don’t know since when, it’s been shutting down abruptly and making my phone screen black all of a sudden. This is the only problem I’m encountering with this app, other than that I love it and I appreciate this app a lot cause it help me with my Japanese studies a lot! I hope you can fix the sudden black out the app causes, please and thank you!
