Excellent vocab builder and auto-player!

This app has really helped me learn lots of vocab and sayings. I love how many player options there are. There are settings for English to Japanese, Japanese to English, recording your own voice to compare with the app recording, and a repetitive player that says the word 8 times to help you really absorb that word/phrase. I love to use that last mode while driving or washing dishes.

This app won't teach you how to become fluent in Japanese, there are no lessons on grammar or how to construct a sentence as far as I can tell, but it does teach you lots of words and phrases to help beef up your conversational skills. The romanji can be turned off of you like so you are forced to read the kana and kanji but it doesn't teach you the kana/kanji specifically. No worries about that though because there are several other great apps for solely teaching the kana and kanji.

I've been really pleased with how much I've retained from this app so I will most likely purchase the full version once I learn the free words (I think it's 100?)

Nice app!

Great app for learning Nihongo

Good interface. Contains a lot of important words and phrases. Way better than most of the other Japanese language apps, but does lack hiragana. I deducted a star from my review because a recent update removed the default English speaking voice in Play mode from a semi realistic female to what sounds like a very low volume version of Stephen Hawking. Can barely hear it even with my phone at max volume. What had been one of the most useful features of this app is now rendered completely useless. Another star will be deducted if this isn’t corrected in the near future.

Just what I needed

I love the audio part. It’s like someone drilling me while driving down the road. I’m struggling with the mic on my end a bit though. It doesn’t always play back my recording. When I figure out what’s wrong then I’ll bump to 5 stars. Using this for the repetitive audio drills and memory skills combined with Human Japanese for the in-depth explanations is an absolutely perfect combination. Check it out!
