10 Star App!

This is truly an amazing application that I can hardly believe is free. This really deserves to be a paid app. It will walk you through the grammar from JLPT N5 (basic) all the way up to N1 (advanced). The explanations are detailed and yet simple so anyone can follow along. The only prerequisite is that you can read English; this app will even teach you the kana (how to read the Japanese alphabet) if you're completely unfamiliar with the Japanese language. The quizzes after the explanations are both challenging and fun reminding me very much of Duolingo. Your knowledge will be put to the test while you'll be put at great risk of becoming an obsessive Japanese grammar addict like me. Finally, the app allows you to ask questions about the contents which... I'm just speechless about. The time, energy, and kindness put into this app is truly mind-blowing; it'll be obvious to anyone who's studying Japanese or has an interest in Japanese that this app was built only with the Japanese learner's best interest in mind. Did I mention the app is gorgeous and clean as well (swiping though the explanation cards is so satisfying) and it has finally been fixed to work with iOS 10 again! What are you waiting for? Ready to master Japanese?! 🙌🏼 The app's free, there's no sign in required, so you've really got nothing to lose! 🤗

Great app for learning Japanese

I really love the exercises and the explanations. They feel well thought out and well explained. I find the little translations for words in some questions to be really useful too. I also love the review feature, it’s super useful and it’s nice that there’s a tip that pops up after review questions involving grammar.
The organization of different grammar lessons is really nice as well. It’s easy to find something you need to go back and look at if you need to.
I like that they included some Vocab lessons/exercises for essential or commonly used words. I hope they consider maybe adding more vocabulary lessons with more common/essential words.
I’m really glad I bought the full version since the features are worth it and I think it’s really cool that you can purchase a lifetime subscription, especially for such a reasonable price.(the monthly prices are pretty good too) Compared to other language apps with subscriptions it’s really nice.
I would highly recommend this app for any level of learners.

Amazing App!!! 🤍🤍 (some minor revisions needed)

I’d like to start by saying that this app is more than helpful in remembering hiragana. 👍🏻 And I very much enjoy using it because of it’s simplicity and visuals. My only problems are technical. Sometimes when I finish a column in the hiragana alphabet, upon completing the last question, I won’t get the 100% completition screen nor the blue checkmark. Also, when I’m on the phone and I press the “listen” command to hear the sound the sentence or word, it won’t play any sound. I understand it not being able to use the mic at the same time as when you’re on the phone 📞 , but why is it that I can’t listen to the app’s audio while I’m on the phone? 🔇 Other than those issues, the app is wonderful. Thank you so much for creating it. I have also finally decided to pay the monthly subscription fee (even though it doesn’t really change the app in my opinion, but I have a lot of faith and wanted to support it’s development in any way possible, including my own language development!)🤍🤍
