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! 🤗

I’d Pay for this App

I have been using this app for a few days only, but it’s simply amazing. The lessons are simple but effective. The developer is very, VERY responsive. You can ask him questions about the lessons or point out problems and they get fixed really quickly. I reported two problems and the developer replied and fixed them both within 12 hours.

If this app is ever a paid app or even a subscription, I’d pay for it because responsive developers deserve every support they can get.

Also, I may be wrong about this, but I think the developer is a Japanese native who is fluent in English, so you can be assured that the lessons are as real as they can get, and the app doesn’t try to teach you things the same way as many other apps that teach you by “Enflishying” the language too much.

Amazing app extremely helpful. Loading time bad right now

Fantastic app. Can’t overstate that. They also fixed the loading times. Really great. They’re responsive to issues. Can’t ask for better. Download this app. Also, I wish that the number of items to review would decrease after I answered a few review questions. Right now it only decreases the number of items to review after you complete the entire review (it decreases them to zero). I would love it if I could just go in and do a few review questions, then the app would account for those. A few times I’ve gotten almost to the end and then had to quit, only to come back and it seems the whole quiz has reset. I’m not sure if that’s because some of them came back after some time or if it just forgot what I did. If the app would automatically account for the ones you’ve already done, and the user would be able to see that, it would be very useful.
