Free and fun!

This app is very helpful and you can get all the studying for free! There are some ads, but they do not appear after every single lesson and aren’t so annoying it makes you want to close the app. The learning style is very simple and gives you different ways to learn.

Best I’ve seen

Didn’t expect this app to be as useful as it is. The most useful feature being able to remove romanji for personal preference.
