Have you planned a trip to Japan?
Did you just start learning Japanese?
Then you need this app!

Taptaro is a simple yet effective audio phrasebook of more that 450 useful English words and phrases translated and recorded by native Japanese speakers to help you communicate better and learn more about the Japanese culture.

Taptaro is best suited for casual travelers and beginner learners of Japanese. It’s free to download and always will be.

With Taptaro you can practice your Japanese listening comprehension and improve your fluency and pronunciation by listening to the original audio and then recording your own voice. A single tap plays the audio and reveals the Japanese translation, transliteration in Latin alphabet (Romaji) and recording button.

Good, if it’s available

I think the app works well, does what it’s supposed to, but it disappears off the store for a while, and so I tried recommending it to a friend and they couldn’t find it.

Glad to see it’s back now!
